Husson University and daVinci Consulting presentation to focus on goal setting and the benefit of community partnerships
On Thursday, August 15, 2019, from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Central Lincoln County YMCA, 525 Main Street, Damariscotta, Maine, Husson University and daVinci Consulting will be hosting a presentation called “Goal Setting and the Value of Partnerships.” This presentation will provide individuals with insight into setting personal and professional goals as well as information about how businesses and organizations can benefit from community partnerships.
“Husson believes it’s important to collaborate with individuals and organizations interested in using education to help advance their personal and professional success,” said Dr. Marie Hansen, dean of the College of Business and New England School of Communications (NESCom) at Husson University. “Working collaboratively, it is possible to create positive change that will have a lasting impact on our personal lives and in the workplace.”
The presentation will cover:
• Why individuals should set goals.
• The best types of goals to set. Outcome, performance and process
goals will all be discussed.
• How change is connected to big differences in overall performance.
• Why businesses, organizations and higher education all need each other.
“In today’s world, individuals and managers must be able to set goals if they want to improve their own personal performance or the success of their organization. Setting goals gives you purpose and direction. If you don’t know where you want to go, don’t be surprised if you don’t get any place,” said Vince Pelote, a managing partner with daVinci Consulting.
The event is free and open to the public. Participants are asked to register in advance by calling Rebecca Telega, Marketing and
Membership Coordinator of the Damariscotta Region Chamber of Commerce at 207-563-8340 or by emailing her at email@example.com.
This presentation is another example of collaborative efforts by Husson University with Damariscotta-area organizations. Recently, the Damariscotta Chamber of Commerce and Husson University partnered to provide Chamber members with a 10 percent discount on MBA courses.

Registrations for the daVinci course and MBA courses at Husson University are still being accepted. Both Husson and daVinci Consulting will be present to answer enrollment questions at this event.

Advance discounted tickets $30, Online and day of concert $35. Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, the Subdudes have quietly become one of America’s national music treasures.The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you’ll ever hear from any five musicians.Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée, for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass.
