Guest Host:

Tawny Alvarez
Partner
Verrill Dana

Tawny is a partner in Verrill Dana’s labor and employment practice group.  She believes that a company’s culture defines its business and prides herself on assisting clients comply with the law, while simultaneously creating an amazing place to work.

Tawny centers her practice on the understanding that the employment landscape is ever-changing and that many organizations do not have the time or resources to keep abreast of all of these changes—from medical (and recreational) marijuana’s effect on drug testing, to the effect of social networking in the workplace and mobile devices’ effect on wage and hour issues. In this evolving landscape, she recognizes that for companies to remain profitable and successful they must be proactive, as opposed to reactive, to these employment issues.

What Would Henry Do? –

Today on our little planet, we live in bewildering times. We’re essentially faced with this question: what should we be thinking, saying and doing about the challenges bearing down upon our lives? Answers can be hard to come by. Yet we, the community of Thoreau Farm, believe we have to search for them. So we wondered, if Henry David Thoreau were alive today, what would HE think, what HE say, what would HE do?

Author of The Speaker’s Edge: The Ultimate Go-To Guide for Locating and Landing Lots of Speaking Gigs (Maven House Press), The Expert’s Edge: Become the Go-To Authority that People Turn to Every Time (McGraw-Hill), and five other books, Ken Lizotte and his team transform consultants, entrepreneurs, business experts, attorneys and professional services professionals and their firms into “thoughtleaders,” thereby separating them the competitive pack.

A Certified Management Consultant (CMC), Ken speaks frequently at national and local business events including annual appearances at Harvard and the Concord Festival of Authors. From 2000-2005, he served as chapter president of IMC New England, followed by a term on the national board of IMC USA. He is a member of the CEO Club of Boston and the Association of Management Consulting Firms, a graduate of Alan Weiss’s Million Dollar Consulting College and the pro bono President of the Thoreau Farm Trust.

A thoughtleader in his own right, Ken has been interviewed by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, Newsweek, Financial Times, Investors’ Business Daily, National Public Radio, CBS-TV, Writer’s Digest Magazine, The Boston Globe, to name just a few. He has published hundreds of articles including blogs and columns for the American Management Association and Boston Magazine. He’s a co-founder of the National Writers Union.
