      Is It “Whisky” or “Whiskey”?

      Is whiskey the same as bourbon? What about rye and scotch? What are the differences between Irish, Canadian and Japanese whiskey? If you know the answers to these questions, you’re probably either a connoisseur of this fine spirit or a bartender — because these distinctions can cause confusion for the rest of us.

      Pour a glass of your favorite whiskey and join us as expert Blake Tucker discusses how to develop an appreciation for the traditions, types and tastes of whiskey and pick your perfect evening drink. Tucker will teach us about the fermentation of grains, distillation and aging in wooden barrels that leads to different classes and types of whiskey. With so many brands flooding the market, the retail shelves have turned into a sea of brown liquor that could overwhelm the average drinker. We’ll answer the aforementioned questions and more while exploring the whiskeys of the world and what makes them so unique.

      The Neuroscience of Navigating Change: Create Resilient Teams in Turbulent Times

      Rapid and relentless change is now the norm in today’s global business environment. Markets shift overnight; teams must collaborate across geographies, time zones and cultures; and the future is always uncertain.

      The human brain is wired to seek reward and avoid pain. Since change is associated with the fear of a potentially painful future, we must first understand how fear shuts down the key planning, innovation and emotional engagement areas of the brain.

      In this dynamic and highly interactive session, you’ll learn key neuroscience techniques that can be applied to shift a person’s, a team’s or an entire organization’s mindset with remarkable results — yielding greater innovation, social connection, vision, emotional engagement and open communication.

      Join us for a program that will turbocharge your ability to navigate change, create a more positive and empowered culture, and generate more compelling results — and get these outcomes faster and with deeper fulfillment.

      Tuesday, April 27, 2021, 1:00–2:00 p.m. PT / 4:00–5:00 p.m. ET
