COOPERTITION: Cooperation Between Competitors for the Benefit of All
In a competition, for someone to win, must someone else lose? Many would say, YES! And it happens all the time in business, in personal relationships, among family members, Now, what if there was a better way to resolve a competition? There is! Please join us on Monday, October 11th as Janice Miller, Or Ami partner and recent author of the book “COOPERTITION” demonstrates the beauty and mutual advantage of benevolent collaboration, for the benefit of all. Thinking innovatively and disruptively is a requirement to not just survive but thrive.

We Are Off to Sydney and Tasmania!
Join us as we cyber tour two stops in Australia: Sydney and Tasmania.
Sydney is a vibrant city, known for its yacht-studded harbor, superb beaches and the iconic Opera House. Once a British colony of exiled convicts, Sydney has grown into Australia’s most diverse and cosmopolitan city with an exciting food, arts and entertainment scene.
Then off to Tasmania. Separated from the Australian mainland by water, Tasmania has its own unique scenic, wildlife and cultural aspects, very different from other parts of Australia. The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, covering 20% of the state, is one of the largest conservation areas in the country. It remains a popular area for bushwalking (i.e. hiking) and quiet contemplation. Australia is a beautiful country, but Tasmania perhaps takes the cake!
Happening soon! Be on the lookout for an announcement of the beginning of a series of interactive discussions based on Rabbi Laura Geller and Richard Siegel’s best selling book!
