Thursday, July 19, 2018, join us at the amazing Carbonite HQ in downtown Boston for food, drinks, and an experience you won’t want to miss.
Carbonite and Dent have joined forces to create an evening, tech- and business-themed event beyond the usual drinks-and-speaker. You’ll sip and mingle with other interesting folks while you discover the power of play and its lessons for teamwork, competition, and cooperation.
We’ll then hear perspectives and insights in a discussion with two very special guest speakers, Noelle Lopez and Tomer Perry. The schedule looks like this:
Thursday, July 19th

Beverages, appetizers (beer & wine, light appetizers).
Attendees will be divided into groups and groups will be guided to one of a selected set of board and party games to play. People will learn new things about competitive and cooperative play with each other.
Trust, Play, and Learning
Speakers: Noelle Lopez, Tomer Perry
Cooperative and competitive play reveal common principles of behavior around trust, teamwork, and leadership that can help us think about our relationship with technology and with each other as our lives become increasingly digital.
The Harvard Learning Lab has been exploring possible applications of game design principles for designing academic assignments and curriculum, and there is already a growing understanding of how collaboration in sports, theater, and other team-based creative efforts.
In this conversation, we'll explore the lessons learned about trust, teamwork, ethics, and leadership through play this evening, as well as the practice of applying games to developing valuable skills, and how those principles might become design guidelines for those of us building the future.
Post-presentation Open Conversation
Our guest will be available to answer questions and participate with the community.
Come make new connections and gain insights through a unique evening experience. We’re looking forward to meeting you there.
