I Can Hear You (narrative short film)

Did you know that deafness in children still occurs in significant numbers? Approximately one in 1,000 children are born deaf in the United States every year. These kids cannot hear the loudest sounds like a police car siren or a fire alarm.

In the first few years of life, hearing is a critical part of kids’ social, emotional, and cognitive development. Even a mild or partial hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to speak and understand language. If you have any doubt about your child’s hearing, it is very important to have it tested as soon as possible. This will help avoid any delays in his or her language acquisition and learning.


Babson College NADA automotive executive education initiative

Here are some video testimonials we did for Babson College and the NADA. These were used as promos for an automotive executive education initiative.

This unprecedented executive education initiative, consisting of six one-week modules over the course of a year, is tailor-made to build leadership, management and business performance for senior-level executives in the auto and truck retail industry.

Held on the campus of Babson College in Wellesley, Mass., the program focuses on actual business situations to help current dealer operators, retail executives, senior leaders in dealership groups and successor candidates optimize success in all areas of the dealership. Babson Executive Education is a nationally recognized leader in professional development for business leaders. Its faculty and industry experts lead the program.

“This is the only program in the country that gives auto and truck industry entrepreneurs the tailored, ‘real-life’ information they need to tackle such complex challenges as dealership mergers and acquisitions, expansions into related auto businesses and building long-term profitability,” said John Lyboldt, vice president of Dealership Operations at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA).
