MARJORIE PRIME

May 30 – June 30 | O’Reilly Theater

By Jordan Harrison
Directed by Marya Sea Kaminski

In the near future, “primes” are programmed to look, sound, and smile like our dearly departed. With young Walter, Marjorie recalls the good old days of their marriage despite the frustrations of her rapidly failing memory. He acts and feels like family, even as Marjorie’s own daughter seems less and less familiar. Jordan Harrison (writer for Orange is the New Black) brings us this inventive, intimate play about a world where advancing technology can lead us back to who we are and to the people we love.

Special Event: Sunday, June 2, 2019 

“When Robots Become Our Companions: Facts, Fantasies, and Uncomfortable Truths” 

With Marya Sea Kaminski, Illah Nourbakhsh, and Henny Admoni.

On Sunday, June 2 at the O’Reilly Theater in downtown Pittsburgh’s Cultural District, Marjorie Prime director Marya Sea Kaminski will host a lively discussion about robot companion development with two experts from Carnegie Mellon University, a leader in artificial intelligence. Featured are Illah Nourbakhsh, the K&L Gates Professor of Ethics and Computational Technologies, and Henny Admoni, an assistant professor in CMU’s Robotics Institute where she leads the Human and Robot Partners (HARP) Lab. Beginning at 4:00 pm in The Public’s third floor rehearsal hall, the program is open to anyone with a ticket for either the 2:00 or 7:00 pm performance of Marjorie Prime on Sunday, June 2.

Developing Leadership Potential – Greentree

Mon/Tue/Wed, June 17-19, 2019 8:30 am-5:00 pm

Although we tend to promote our top performing employees into leadership positions, the skills and mindset needed by a high-performance leader are completely different from that of a high-performance employee.  This program is designed to take top performers and turn them into the next generation of leaders.  It focuses on the essential skills that are needed to build strong teams, equips new leaders with the right attitudes to step up and take charge and is specifically designed to address the challenges faced by new leaders and those that have not received the skills even though they have already been tackling the leadership role.

This unique Leadership course includes an online “awareness” session, 3 immersive days in group training in Greentree, an online “sustainment” session after 90-days, AND a 1-year subscription for five follow-on online courses that you can take when your schedule allows.

Winning with Relationship Selling

Wed/Thu/Fri June 26-28, 2019 | 8:30 am-4:30 pm | Cranberry Twp

When customers have completed 70% of the buying process or can complete many online purchases without ever engaging with a single salesperson, traditional sales tactics simply no longer work. Your customers are the personification of the empowered consumer, knowledgeable beyond the need for basic information. You need a relationship-selling approach that leads to a profitable relationship. This award-winning course, founded on building trust and strengthening client partnerships, helps sales professionals at every level, from novices looking to start strong, to seasoned professionals who need to navigate changing sales and relationship dynamics. You’ll learn to demonstrate your value proposition powerfully, shorten the buying cycle, and gain repeat business through trusting relationships.

Winning with Relationship Selling is available for single or group registrations.  Ask about team registration discounts.
