Hacking HR Raleigh - Durham Chapter Meetup 1


About Laurie
Laurie Ruettimann is known for her commonsense style and straightforward approach to workforce issues. HR leaders turn to her for the truths that most of them can’t say, won’t say, or are afraid to say and still stay employed in a Fortune 500 company. Laurie’s career began in 1995 as an HR assistant for Leaf Candy Company, providing operations assistance and recruiting services for an hourly workforce in a manufacturing environment that was heavily unionized and staffed with immigrants from Bosnia. She’s worked at Monsanto, Alberto-Culver (now Unilever), Kemper Insurance (out of business), and Pfizer. Laurie began blogging in 2004 on a nascent platform called BlogSpot while working at Pfizer, telling stories that would likely get her fired had she been discovered. After laying off thousands of workers and watching her husband lose his job at the same company, she exited corporate America in 2007 to focus her time and attention on telling truth to power by writing, speaking, and advising companies on how to make HR better. Laurie has been featured on major American media platforms such as NPR, The New Yorker, Vox, and CNN. She is the creator of The Cynical Girl and Punk Rock HR, which Forbes named as one of its top 100 websites for women. She was a contributing editor for The Conference Board Review and a contributor to online ventures such as Mediabistro, AOL, and BusinessInsider.com.
Her advice has been featured in a variety of publications including CIO Magazine, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Inc., Men’s Health, Real Simple, The New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. CareerBuilder and CNN have recognized her as a top career advisor in the United States.
Laurie keynotes events all around the world and appeared onstage at the 92nd Street Y and Harvard Business School, founded GlitchPath, an early-stage start-up focused on project management, and started a new podcast in April 2018 called “Let’s Fix Work.”

Bridging the Digital Divide

Workplace expert Laurie Ruettimann has been at the forefront of workplace issues for over two decades, and now she takes on the dirty secret of job dissatisfaction and interpersonal conflict, holds it up to the light of day, and provides practical, honest advice for addressing issues in the current workplace as they spill online.
In this fresh and authentic program, Ruettimann gives HR leaders the responsibility and opportunity to utilize digital tools to address and confront divisive issues related to culture, politics, race, gender and even #MeToo. HR leaders will learn new strategies to address and mediate contentious debates online, and we'll talk about what it takes to address workplace dissatisfaction on these new media platforms. 

Join Laurie as she covers the buzzwords, the nerdy, and all things digital. If your company ever had an online review that didn't feel fair, or if you felt like complaining about your own CEO on a website, this program is for you.

Join us at 5:30 for Networking and Light appetizers and beverages

RTCC SMART SERIES: EVS, ZEVS & MORE – ELECTRIFYING TRANSPORTATION IN NC

The transportation sector presents the 2nd-greatest opportunity (after modernizing the electricity grid) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across North Carolina.

Recognizing this, Governor Cooper issued Executive Order 80 (“North Carolina’s Commitment to Address Climate Change and Transition to a Clean Energy Economy”) in October 2018. EO80 directs state agencies to identify key strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and sets a goal to increase the number of registered zero-emission vehicles (“ZEVs”, including electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid EVs) in NC to more than 80,000 by 2025. This aggressive goal presents a variety of opportunities to reduce emissions and improve our electric grid.

At a local level, more than 19 municipal governments across North Carolina have pledged to achieve climate goals – and electrifying transportation is a key strategy to reduce carbon emissions.

And industry is key to accelerating EV adoption – for example, Duke Energy has proposed a $76M pilot to increase the number of EV charging stations across the state.

But how will North Carolina add 80,000 ZEVs to its roads by 2025? What role can utilities play in advancing EV adoption at the local level? What are municipalities doing to electrify their fleets and meet residents? demands? What impact will electrification have on the environment?

Join the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster on June 21 to hear from a panel of cleantech industry experts and North Carolina municipalities, and network with regional leaders changing the region and world.

DATA SCIENCE INNOVATION LAB

JUNE 24 - JUNE 28
JUNE 24 - JUNE 28



The 2019 Data Science Innovation Lab is June 24-28 at Graylyn International Conference Center in Winston-Salem, NC.

The BD2K Training Coordinating Center is organizing a Data Science Innovation Lab to foster the development of new interdisciplinary teams via a facilitated and mentored format to tackle the challenges associated with the analysis, modeling, and visualization of large-scale data sets associated with the biomedicine of rural health. More details here.

The Innovation Lab entails participation in an intensive five-day residential workshop facilitating the development of new early-career (post-doc, assistant to newly associate professor level, research and tenure track) biomedical and quantitative investigator teams that will generate multidisciplinary research programs through a real-time and iterative mentoring process. Involving around 30 participants, the Innovation Lab strives to develop new and bold approaches to address challenging questions for topics that could benefit from a fresh or divergent perspective. Prior knowledge of research at this interface is not required; rather, applicants with either quantitative or biomedical expertise who demonstrate their willingness to engage in collaborative multidisciplinary research are highly encouraged to apply.

During the Innovation Lab, professional facilitators assist the participants and accelerate the idea formulation process, while the scientific experts serve as mentors and impartial referees. Working under the guidance of these mentors, participants will form teams during the workshop to develop interdisciplinary projects to solve a data science challenge arising from a biomedical research challenge involving the collection and analysis of rural health biomedical data. The lab will include opportunities for learning about NIH and NSF funding through interaction with program officers. Teams are highly encouraged to develop proposals for submission to funding agencies after the conclusion of the workshop.

THE GODFATHERS OF CLOUD & VOICE TECHNOLOGIES SPEAK IN WILMINGTON

From Jim Roberts, founder of  Network for Entrepreneurs in Wilmington (NEW):

Many people who attended our May event said it was our best event for content as attendees got a two hour MBA from Joe Colopy of Colopy Ventures and Bronto Software fame. Joe also joined us for the After party dinner and also met with several local entrepreneurs on Friday at TekMountain as I had told him about the “Ritz-Carleton” of coworking space (for the decor). He was SOOO good on stage with his insights about the need for a cofounder, why NetSuite taught him how to be “SalesCentric” and why he started GrepBeat.com, a tech startup newsletter that has included Wilmington stories.

But I have taken the challenge to make our June event even better if possible.

For the June event, NEW has arranged for two experienced technology leaders with connections to North Carolina to speak at a Riverside Chat in June in Wilmington.

The technologies behind “The Cloud” and “Voice” are changing the global economy.

Even Gary Vaynerchuk is VERY excited about the future of VOICE as people buy consumer products by saying Alexa we need laundry detergent and other products.

If you are familiar with voice technology, this is the Amazon Alexa or the technology behind Wilmington based Voice.tech scaling startup that helps sexual assault victims by automating the interview process and leads to 40 % more information from the victims. Software called VictimLink.

If you are familiar with Cloud technologies, this is what allows you to have gmail, Amazon AWS, or cloud allows you to have pictures or songs you can pull from storage not on your device. Or a local company like nCino uses the cloud to manage documents in the banking industry. These cloud storage facilities for Apple and Facebook are based in North Carolina near Hickory with cheap energy infrastructure left over from the furniture industry.

But what about the future of cloud and voice technologies?

We will discuss this on June 25th.

Guest speakers for the event include two of my mentors:

  • Tom Fisher, a North Carolina native, has been a high level executive with tech companies such as IBM, Oracle, eBay, Qualcomm, Gateway and Success Factors and is considered a leader in cloud based technology.
  • Jordan Cohen has been involved in voice technology for more than 30 years through his time in the Air Force, IBM and more recently with a company called Semantic Machines that sold to Microsoft.
  • The moderator of the Riverside chat will be Tim McLoughlin, Partner in Cofounders Capital, that is based in Cary and recently announced a $31 million venture fund. McLoughlin was an Entrepreneur in Residence at NC IDEA and is a frequent speaker at NEW events in Wilmington.
We are proud to announce that we have received an Engage grant from the Durham based NC IDEA organization for this event. The NC IDEA Engage grant funds organizations across the state that execute creative programs to support entrepreneurs and strengthen North Carolina as a national exemplar for entrepreneurship. The Engage grant offers a maximum of $5,000.

NC IDEA is a Durham based non-profit and their goal is to foster economic development in North Carolina by helping young startups commercialize their innovations. In turn, these companies will grow and create a lasting impact in the community and beyond by securing investment, creating jobs and building wealth.

Konversations: Leaving Entrepreneurship

Konversations is a free monthly discussion with our principal and creative director, Tobias Rose, and special guests on a variety of topics. From entrepreneurship to digital strategy and everything creative and technical in between, we will discuss a different subject during each Konversation.
This month, we're going to talk about leaving entrepreneurship. Tobias met Mattie while location-scouting for The Foreign Exchange’s Leave It All Behind album. As a great friend and fellow entrepreneur, it’s good to speak with someone that understands the challenges and the solitude of what it is that you do. When Mattie told him that he was done with entrepreneurship, he was sad, but understood his reasoning. Tobias and Mattie will discuss what it took to leave entrepreneurship, the thinking behind it and why this decision is, sometimes, the best one.
Mattie Beason has been in the Durham restaurant business for the last 20 years. He has most recently seen success with Six Plates Wine Bar, a small plates and pairing bar; gastropub Mattie B's Public House; and Black Twig Cider House, a cider and food pub. He has been a part of the cider community and active in the United States Association of Cider Makers for the last six years. Recently, Mattie has started on a new path furthering his interest in cider by joining Stem Ciders out of Denver, Colorado.
If you’re interested in networking, be sure to arrive at 6:30pm. The hour-long discussion will begin at 7pm. Konversations are open to the public, but a ticket is required for entry. Each discussion is filmed and published to our YouTube channel.

Real Estate Trends 2019: Eye Popping Data and Top 10 Cities For Investors


After pouring through over 100 articles, a dozen videos, and numerous studies, Neal and the Grocapitus team are ready with our most popular event of the year - Real Estate Trends January 2019 Edition. This presentation is completely rebuilt from scratch for 2019.
With some markets slowing and others declining, now is the time to get the information you need to succeed in the turbulent 2019 Real Estate market. The Real Estate Trends content is much more powerful than it was for 2018.


Included in the presentation you will discover single family trends and forecast, multifamily trends and forecast, interest rate forecast, home price forecast, rent forecast, Opportunity zones, why apartment demand is going up (with eye opening graphs), plus the U.S. economy update (GDP, trade war, inflation, unemployment, and wage growth).

Plus, the most popular section has been expanded. We now have Top 10 cities for real estate investment 2019 (separated out for both single family and multifamily) and Top 10 cities for Multifamily development (opportunity zones, anyone?) We will finish off with Neal's insights and picks for Top Markets in 2019.

Don't miss the presentation that attendees have called "The Best Seminar they ever attended. Period" and "Insanely good 60 minute knowledge blast".

The presentation is filled with Quotes from terrific real estate sources and with Power Packed Infographics such as the one above. 


This year, in our Top city shootout, we have added information that our investors requested, such as new construction (for Multifamily) and Job Growth (for both multifamily and single family) so you can make better investing decisions. 

And for the first time, we have added a section called THE STORY OF APARTMENTS IN 10 GRAPHS. This story will explain to you why Workforce apartments continue to see rent growth that is far above 10 year and 30 year trend-lines. This knowledge alone can be the one nugget that you need for a comfortable retirement !!


So don’t miss out on the expanded Real Estate Trends 2019 webinar.

See you there,

Neal Bawa
CEO & Founder
Grocapitus and MultifamilyU

PS - If there is one real estate presentation that you should attend, this is definitely the one. “Neal's presentation was filled with invaluable information that is not readily available to the average investor. This group takes you to the elite level of investing. Many many hours of research must have gone into this presentation! Thank you guys for sharing it with me!!” — Carlos MolinaTo get more MultifamilyU content in person, join your local MultifamilyU MeetUp group here: https://www.meetup.com/mfuGreensboro/

Intro to Design Sprints: All your questions, answered!

Looking for a fast, fun and practical way for your team to source creative new ideas and actually find out if they’ll work? Design Sprint!
About this Event
INTRO TO DESIGN SPRINTS: EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW (BUT HAVE BEEN AFRAID TO ASK)!
Looking for a fast, fun and practical way for your team to source creative new ideas and actually find out if they’ll work? Try a DESIGN SPRINT!
The Design Sprint process was created by Google Ventures as a way to rapidly validate and test new ideas, saving time and money. While it’s origins are in digital product design, sprints have been used to solve issues in healthcare, services, marketing, government and more. It’s NOT just for designers or creative people, it does NOT require specialized knowledge to participate and it is definitely NOT boring!

FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS A DESIGN SPRINT?
A facilitated week-long workshop with a small, carefully selected team of people. During the week, you’ll deep-dive into understanding a problem or challenge, brainstorm new creative solutions, select one to move forward with and even prototype and test your new solution with real customers!

WHO IS A DESIGN SPRINT FOR?
Any department, in any industry, to solve almost any challenge. I’ve worked with clients in government, non-profit, service businesses, healthcare, product businesses, human resources, legal teams and marketing. The process can be adapted for almost any type of solution.

CAN I RUN MY OWN DESIGN SPRINT?
Yup! Anyone can DIY. It requires a bit of studying and a ton of research, but anyone can do it.

OK, BUT CAN YOU RUN IT FOR ME?
Sure can! It’s what I love to do.

CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT DESIGN SPRINTS?
Like, besides this awesome workshop? Of course. Here are a few helpful links.

ABOUT DANA PUBLICOVER:
Dana has a diverse background that includes work as a writer, tech founder, designer and skydiving instructor. She has spent the last few years building internal startup incubators and pitch competitions for corporate innovation programs, running workshops and evangelizing design thinking at the enterprise level. Her company, Tiny Piñata, is a UX research firm that specializes in creating specialized workshops for corporate teams. She lives in Greensboro, NC with her husband and identical twin sons. Her first book, The Empathy Imperative, will be published in Fall 2019.

Capture Management Workshop – Raleigh


WHAT IS CAPTURE MANAGEMENT?

Capture management is about having a dedicated focus on “winning” a particular pursuit – figuring out what to offer and presenting it in a winning proposal. This requires knowledge and skills in marketing, corporate strategy, proposal development, finance, pricing, contracts, project management, human resources, and basically everything else. It may very well be the most difficult job in a company; partly because very few people have experience in everything needed, and partly because they have to sell, internally, within the company just as much as they have to sell to the customer. Capture management hands off to proposal management when it’s time to put it all in writing.

Students will learn about the drug development process while also learning and doing a series of biotech laboratory techniques. Each day will focus on lab work, but there will also be opportunities to hear from and speak with employees from a wide range of departments. The laboratory component for most of the sessions will focus on modifying DNA in order to produce and purify green fluorescent protein! To accomplish this, students will learn and do the following techniques: bacterial transformation, site-directed mutagenesis, protein extraction, affinity purification and PAGE. But don’t worry if students are not familiar with these lab techniques - that’s what they will learn during the program!

Capture Management Workshop – Chapel Hill


WHAT IS CAPTURE MANAGEMENT?

Capture management is about having a dedicated focus on “winning” a particular pursuit – figuring out what to offer and presenting it in a winning proposal. This requires knowledge and skills in marketing, corporate strategy, proposal development, finance, pricing, contracts, project management, human resources, and basically everything else. It may very well be the most difficult job in a company; partly because very few people have experience in everything needed, and partly because they have to sell, internally, within the company just as much as they have to sell to the customer. Capture management hands off to proposal management when it’s time to put it all in writing.
