Elephant Bill: The Inspiring Story of James Howard Williams
Elephant Company, the topic of Vicki Constantine Croke’s lecture at The Mount, was received with rave reviews, among which The New York Times Book Review stated “nothing less than a sweeping tale, masterfully written.” Part biography, part war epic, and part wildlife adventure, this lecture illuminates the remarkable story of James Howard “Billy” Williams, whose uncanny rapport with the world’s largest land animals transformed him from a carefree young man into the charismatic war hero known as “Elephant Bill.” In 1920, Williams took a job in the teak business, drawn by the lure of working with the elephants. It was love at first sight. Impressed with their intelligence, courage, kindness, and humor, he believed that just living with them made him a better man. He worked to cure their ills and he fought for their humane care. Elephant Company is also a tale of war and daring. When Imperial Japanese forces invaded Burma in 1942, Williams joined the elite Force 136, the British dirty tricks department, operating behind enemy lines. His war elephants would carry supplies, build bridges, and transport the sick and elderly over treacherous mountain terrain. Williams even added to his stable by smuggling more elephants out of Japanese-held territory. As the occupying authorities put a price on his head, Williams and his elephants attempted a desperate escape: a risky trek over the mountainous border to India, with a bedraggled group of refugees in tow. Elephant Bill’s exploits would earn him top military honors and the praise of famed Field Marshal Sir William Slim. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Vicki Constantine Croke has been exploring and chronicling animal life for more than two decades, tracking polar bears in the Arctic Circle, the fossa in Madagascar, and Tasmanian devils. She now covers animal issues for WBUR-FM, Boston’s NPR news station, on air (Here and Now) and on WBUR’s The Wild Life online. Her work there earned a 2013 regional Edward R. Murrow Award. She is the author of The Lady and the Panda: The True Adventures of the First American Explorer to Bring Back China’s Most Exotic Animal, The Modern Ark: The Story of Zoos: Past, Present and Future, and Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II. Croke has worked on nature documentaries for Disney and for the A&E channel and anchored The Secret Life of Animals on NECN-TV. She also wrote The Boston Globe’s “Animal Beat” column for thirteen years, and has contributed to The New York Times, The Washington Post, The London Sunday Telegraph, Time, Popular Science, O: The Oprah Magazine, Gourmet, National Wildlife, and Discover magazine, among others. *** Note: Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date. We would like to thank Blantyre for their ongoing sponsorship and support of the Summer Lecture Series.

Private Equity and Venture Capital Investment Outlook 2015
North America experienced a boom in private equity activity last year, with over 1,000 buyouts taking place on the continent for the first time since 2007. According to Preqin’s Global Private Equity & Venture Capital Report, last June saw PE and VC assets under management reach a new high of US$3.8tn. At the same time, dry powder for these companies rose 11.9% in 2014, to US$1.2tn.   Looking at the US in particular, Preqin research also found that US-focused buyout funds make up nearly two-thirds (63% of the total), compared with 56% over the last decade. Yet despite this, there are some concerns. The increasing amount of capital and investor demand is creating pressure around valuations, and the exit market, after a solid 2014, is slowing down somewhat. How has this changed the PE/VC landscape in North America, and what does the future hold?   Join Mergermarket and RR Donnelley’s panel discussion to look at these topics in depth, and more, followed by a cocktail reception.    Register now for this complimentary event   Topics include: What has been driving North America’s private equity and venture capital boom in the last 18 months? How can PE firms stay ahead in the extremely competitive North-American market? What is attracting private equity to North American tech, industrial and chemicals and business services companies? How can VCs decide at what stage to invest in a company? How are VC firms in North America dealing with competition in the shapes of new forms of finance, such as angel investors, crowdfunding and accelerators? Will the fall in the number of PE/VC exits continue, and what does effect will this fall have?

Assessing Your Organization Through Logic Models

Assessing Your Organization Through Logic Models

Without being able to clearly identify your organization's/programs resources, outputs and outcomes you surely won’t be able to measure them. This training will guide participants through the logic model process which helps agencies identify their key outcomes and outputs. By the end of the Logic Model Session Participants will be able to clearly articulate what their organization/program consists of and produces.

Full Agenda:

6:30 P.M. – 6:45 P.M. Welcome & Introductions


6:45 A.M. – 7:15 P.M. Assessment Phase


The assessment phase sets the stage for a successful evaluation. Without emphasis on assessing resources, outputs, and outcomes you can’t come up with the right design and clear implementation practices. Using a logic model is a popular way to address the organization process and identifying what your program and/or organization is addressing.  

7:15 P.M. – 8:15 P.M. Logic Model Basics

A logic model demonstrates how an intervention (a project, a program, a policy, a strategy) is understood to contribute to possible or actual impacts. Participants will construct their own logic model and work in teams to understand the constructs. Trainers will spend time with each participant to make sure they leave with a draft that can help guide the assessment phase.  


8:15 P.M. – 8:30 P.M. Take-aways & Conclusions

Questions may be directed to info@evaluateforchange.com
