Join Us for an Interactive Workshop: YOU are an Entrepreneur! (You Just Don’t Know it Yet)

Danny Warshay

Danny Warshay, Class of 1983

Tuesday, December 1, 2020, at 7 pm via Zoom


Professor Danny Warshay, Executive Director of the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship at Brown University, will lead a spirited online workshop about the most critical skill in entrepreneurship: “bottom-up research.” This is the first step in the three-step Entrepreneurial Process that Danny teaches to aspiring entrepreneurs at Brown and all over the world.

Says Danny, “As opposed to the myth that entrepreneurs are creative geniuses from birth, The Entrepreneurial Process is a skill set that you can master and apply.” No matter your age, interests, or background, you’ll come away from this interactive workshop with a new way of thinking and approaching opportunities in your life. 

Current students, alumni, parents, teachers, staff, and community members are all encouraged to attend!

This event is FREE but space is limited, so you must register in advance to receive the Zoom link. Danny will also be providing a (fun!) pre-work “assignment” so be sure to register by noon on Friday, November 27.

Join us for a fascinating and informative evening with Lisa Damour, Ph.D., a renowned adolescent psychologist and parent of two Shaker students.

  • How to keep pressure and tension from reaching toxic levels
  • How to parent effectively in the current circumstances
  • The most reliable strategies for managing ongoing stress

Dr. Damour is recognized as a thought leader by the American Psychological Association and provides her sage parenting advice– along with a dash of wit and humor — as a regular contributor at the New York Times, CBS News, and in her Ask Lisa podcast.  

This is event is FREE but you must register in advance to receive the link via Zoom. Please register before noon on  February 17th.
