Mark Payne (Middlebury ’84), co-founder and president of global innovation consultancy Fahrenheit 212, will share lessons from the front lines about what separates innovations that work from those that die on the drawing board. Using case studies from Fahrenheit 212’s work for clients including Samsung, The Coca-Cola Company, Nike, Virgin, Toys R Us, Ikea and leading private equity firms, he’ll share:
- tales of how Fahrenheit hacked and pivoted its way from an unknown startup to a go-to global innovation partner for many of the world’s great companies,
- the genesis of their unique ‘Money & Magic’ philosophy,
- insights about the past present and future of innovation practice in the corporate and startup worlds,
- career advice for anyone thinking innovation might be their thing.
Mark’s insights on innovation’s past, present and future have been featured in Fast Company, Fortune, Bloomberg Businessweek, Esquire and CNBC, in speaking engagements at MIT, Harvard Business School, the Royal Society of the Arts, HEC, Columbia and Wharton, and in his book How to Kill a Unicorn, published by Penguin Random House in 2014.

Come and learn how Greg built an eclectic and very successful career in the performing arts!
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
NO RSVP Required
Greg graduated from Middlebury in 1990 (with a joint degree in Theater and English) and has gone on to negotiate an unusually eclectic career in the performing arts as an actor, director, writer, producer and musician.
Greg attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art after Middlebury, returning to New York City to found the acclaimed Blue Light Theater Co. in 1995 which provided early professional experience to many young Middlebury grads and other theater artists who have since gone on to accomplished careers. Greg served as “artistic director” through 6 seasons and 16 main productions — including the Obie-winning “Oedipus” (starring Frances McDormand and Billy Crudup), “Waiting for Lefty” (starring Marisa Tomei, directed by Joanne Woodward) and The NY premiere of “Amazing Grace” by Michael Cristofer (starring Marsha Mason).
As a musician and singer-songwriter, Greg began his recording and touring career in 2000 after releasing his first solo-album, co-produced by legendary singer-songwriter Phoebe Snow. In 2007 Greg co-founded THE SWEET REMAINS (with fellow Midd-alum, Rich Price), who have since released 4 studio albums & a live DVD while regularly touring the US and Europe. The band has enjoyed favor with playlists and “sharing” all over the world, recently achieving the rare distinction for an all-indie band of over 20 Million Spotify plays.
Greg finally married his dramatic and musical careers last year in a feature-length film he wrote and directed inspired by his experiences as a touring musician. Shot over several months and in NY and CA, the film features cameos from many accomplished actors, including Richard Kind, George Wendt, Blythe Danner, Boyd Gaines, and (his wife) Kelli O’Hara. “The Independents” is currently in the final stages of post-production, headed for the festival circuit later this year.
In 2007 Greg married actress & singer, Kelli O’Hara (in Middlebury), and together they are the proud producers of a 3 and 7-year old.

Middlebury College recently signed a collaborative agreement with HBX, Harvard Business School’s online digital education initiative, to make available the Credential of Readiness (CORe) business fundamentals program to current undergraduate students. Designed for liberal arts students, CORe is an interactive online program composed of three (non-credit-bearing) courses: Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting. Taught entirely online by Harvard Business School faculty, the program utilizes the school’s HBX platform. Middlebury students will not receive course credit for the CORe program; instead, students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from HBX.
Our agreement with HBX reserves places in each CORe cohort and—importantly—guarantees need-based financial aid from HBX for students currently receiving financial aid at Middlebury. An anonymous Middlebury donor has provided additional funding for qualified students’ unmet need. We are delighted to be able to expand access to this program to all of our students.
If you are interested in the program and want to learn more, attend the information session, visit the HBX website, or schedule an appointment with Ursula Olender, director of career advising in the Center for Careers and Internships.
May cohort – May 16-July 13 (deadline to apply is May 3)
June cohort – June 6-August 18 (deadline to apply is May 24)
July cohort – July 6-August 31 (deadline to apply is June 21)

When Art Basel meets Google you can be sure to experience an artsy journey into the future. At this year’s Art Basel Hong Kong, which runs from March 23rd until March 25th, 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Art Basel collaborated with Google Arts & Culture. Together, they created a futuristic project called ‘Virtual Frontiers’.
Art Basel selected a handful of artists to work on this pioneering project. The presentation of experimental work by renowned international artists boychild, Cao Fei, Robin Rhode, Sun Xun and Yang Yongliang, are created entirely with Tilt Brush by Google, a 3D drawing and painting application.
Google Arts & Culture invited these five artists to attend multiday residencies in Beijing and Paris to work for the first time with Tilt Brush by Google. Tilt Brush is a new drawing and painting application that lets you paint in 3D space using virtual reality technology. Your room is your canvas, your palette is your imagination. Tilt Brush allows you to paint life-size three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. And that’s exactly what these artists did.
During Art Basel Hong Kong 2017, visitors will be able to explore five new virtual reality works that were individually created by each artist.
