The Honor Scholar Recognition Dinner is an event that the North Shore Chamber sponsors with pride.

An event of this magnitude is made possible only with the generous support of key business sponsors below. Thank You to all who sponsored (See Inside).

Personal Branding Is A Leadership

Requirement, Not a Self-Promotion Campaign

The building would go up next to the only building currently on the heavily wooded site, the former Parker Brothers headquarters. A five-story parking garage would be built next door.

Cummings Properties President and CEO Dennis Clarke said the company would lease space in the new building for office and research use, as it does at Cummings Center, its large office park on Elliott Street.

“On a long-term basis we’re very optimistic about the city of Beverly and the Dunham Road site in particular,” Clarke said. “We certainly enjoy our stewardship of Cummings Center and being very much a part of the city there.”

Cummings Properties, which is based in Woburn, bought the 54 acres for $2.3 million in December 2011. Story continued Here

More than half of the Region's jobs correlate in the non-private sector. The Chamber is the advocate for the entrepreneur and other private business. These are the jobs that create jobs that pay excise and income taxes which, of course, support the payment of wages for public employees.

And remember, the Chamber's goals are to assist these individuals and to make sure that good jobs are created, and preserved, on the North Shore.

6 Habits of Remarkably Likable People

They're charming. They're genuine.

And they can make an entire room full of people smile.

When you meet someone, after, "What do you do?" you're out of things to say. You suck at small talk, and those first five minutes are tough because you're a little shy and a little insecure.

But you want to make a good impression. You want people to genuinely like you.

Here's how remarkably likeable people do it:

They lose the power pose.

I know: Your parents taught you to stand tall, square your shoulders, stride purposefully forward, drop your voice a couple of registers, and shake hands with a firm grip.

It's great to display nonverbal selfconfidence, but go too far and it seems like you're trying to establish your importance. That makes the "meeting" seem like it's more about you than it is the other person--and no one likes that.

No matter how big a deal you are you pale in comparison to say, oh, Nelson Mandela. So take a cue from him. Watch how he greets Bill Clinton, no slouch at this either.

Clinton takes a step forward (avoiding the "you must come to me" power move); Mandela steps forward with a smile and bends slightly forward as if, ever so slightly, to bow (a clear sign of deference and respect in nearly every culture); Clinton does the same. What you have are two important people who put aside all sense of self-importance or status. They're genuine.
