Effective Immediately: How to Shine in the Workplace

Emily Bennington

Effective Immediately:
How to Shine in the Workplace
Friday, August 12
12 p.m. (PT)/2 p.m. (Central)/3 p.m. (ET)
A Live & Online Broadcast

Bright-eyed college graduates think they are ready to take over the world, but lacking the skills necessary to shine in the workplace, they are left taking over administrative tasks instead. To move up, you must get noticed. To get noticed, you must be distinctive. To be distinctive, you must be known for results. For Beyond 50's "Business" talks, listen to an interview with Emily Bennington (in photo above). If you are a parent or grandparent of a young professional, she will offer help for new employees to master the basics of business and elevate to the top of their game with the skills they need in order to be perceived as top performers. Co-hosted by Daniel Davis and our college intern, Devin DeCuna.

Young AduleGeneration Earn
For Beyond 50's "Personal Finance" talks, listen to an interview with Kimberly Palmer. If you are a parent with a young adult earning a living, this discussion is for the both of you. Today's young professionals have taken on more debt than previous generations, but they are not slackers living off of credit cards as many believe. Palmer will discuss about the 3 phases of life that relate to finance: 1. Building Your Life (topics include "The Joy of Spending" and "The Upside of Debt"), 2. Creating a Home (like "Lessons in Modern Frugality" and "When Parents are Landlords (or Renters)"), and 3. Changing the World (such as "Nonprofit Dreamin'). You'll especially want to learn about stock investing that's specifically for the 20-somethings. Interview co-hosted by Daniel Davis and intern, Devin DeCuna.

Queen of the Sun
Queen of the Sun

In our effort to pollinate awareness about the declining, global bee population called colony collapse, Beyond 50 encourages you to tune in to our upcoming interview with filmmaker Taggart Siegel on his film, "Queen of the Sun."

As Carlo Petrini explains in the film, “If we kill all the bees, there will be no agriculture. I repeat, no agriculture. Bees are the pollinators that guarantee fruit growth and survival.”

And Michael Pollan adds, “The honeybee is important because we depend on it to pollinate 40 percent of our food, a tremendous amount of what we eat.”

The emphasis in the film is the biodynamic and organic communities that have deep and profound insights into the long-term issues that have brought about the recent collapse.

It's all about bee survival and our own.

Beyond 50 will let you know when we'll have Taggart Siegel on the program for an interview this Summer.
