GARDEN PROFESSIONALS LEAD A TOUR OF VICTORIAN FLATBUSH.

LET OUT PROFESSIONALS WALK YOU THRUGH THE GORGEOUS GARDENS AND POSH PATIOS OF LATE-VICTORIAN FLATBUSH.

For many city dwellers, outdoor space means a shared rooftop, an enclosed courtyard or a tiny balcony hovering over a noisy street. Then there’s Victorian Flatbush!

blue-more-ticket-button-215w

 

 

Tag along with Out Professionals to discover the joys of wrap-around porches, secluded patios, lush gardens and expansive lawns surrounding rambling homes along quiet, tree-lined streets.

In visits to six diverse gardens, experts Susannah Laskaris and Holly Noury reveal to you how their neighbors have been able to indulge such a range of garden fantasies — formal English, naturalistic, city farmlet, Japanese, Mediterranean.

Afterwards, relax with a cool drink in the garden of the three-story Victorian home of Out Professionals Members Lance Tukell and Rob Seidel.

SPECIAL THANKS
This special summer edition of Out Professionals’ private Walking Tour/Mixer series was created and sponsored by Mary Kay Seery and Jeffery Welch of Brown Harris Stevens, Park Slope, with the support of The Loralei Bed and Breakfast.

HOW TO ACHIEVE BUSINESS GOALS WITH ACTORS’ TOOLS.

OUT PROFESSIONALS PRESENTS ‘BUSINESS AS PERFORMANCE,’ AN INNOVATIVE CAREER WORKSHOP WITH YUVAL DAVID.

On Tuesday, August 15, Out Professionals invites you to take part in “Business as Performance,” an interactive workshop on personal branding and presentation skills, led by acclaimed actor Yuval David.

blue-more-ticket-button-215w

 

 

Using goal-oriented communication techniques developed during a career in film, television, theatre and voice-over work, Yuval aims to enhance self-awareness and build the self-confidence that comes with delivering a polished pitch or presentation.

When you see an actor deliver a message with conviction, each word and gesture is part of that message. Using the same skills actors use in performance, a business person can learn to demonstrate conviction, communicate sincerity, and be in-the-moment in changing scenarios.

By considering what your audience actually sees and hears, you gain a sense of which habits — vocal tone, gesture, weight shift, postural alignment — may fail to reinforce the impression you want to give.

Through exercises and games, you learn to enhance your communication skills by exploring the roles of voice and physicality. You learn how to focus on breathing techniques, projection and tonality, along with improving posture and gesture.

This immersive, interactive workshop is designed to help you:

  • Increase self-awareness, gain self-confidence
  • Learn to present and pitch in a way that is authentic and empowering
  • Communicate assurance and build trust
  • Connect quickly, interact memorably and follow up effectively.

Yuval David has an enviable record of accomplishment in film, television, theatre and voice-over work, where he is known for memorable performances resulting from bold choices. Using the tools of an actor, Yuval leads workshops on self-presentation in professional and personal environments. In addition to performing artists, his students include those in business, law, finance, politics and education. Acquiring techniques developed through performance and personal branding, his clients benefit from enhanced self-awareness, a keener focus on goals, and the self-confidence that accompanies polished presentation skills.

‘GUARDIAN OF THE HARBOR,’ WALKING TOUR AND MIXER

OUT PROFESSIONALS’ MIDSUMMER ADVENTURE WHISKS YOU TO THE IDYLLIC URBAN OASIS OF GOVERNORS ISLAND.

On Saturday, August 19, begin your trip through time with a brief and breezy ferry ride from the tip of Manhattan to Governors Island, long off limits to New Yorkers.

purch-button-orange copy

 

 

Soon you’re nestled under a canopy of century-old trees, wandering among stately old brick buildings and enjoying Instagram-worthy views of the Lower Manhattan skyline less than 1000 yards away.

In Dutch and British colonial times, Governors Island was pasture, timberland, game preserve and summer resort. For nearly two centuries after the American Revolution it served as guardian of the harbor and was in continuous military use.

Today it’s a National Monument, where well-tended lawns play host to Revolutionary War re-enactments and contemporary art installations. Governors Island parkland is undergoing a stunning reinvention by a Dutch landscape architect, Adriaan Geuze.

On Saturday, August 19, join Members and friends of Out Professionals … OP.LYNX, our dynamic women’s network… and some of our up-and-coming LGBT professionals, for “Guardian of the Harbor: The Walking Tour and Mixer.” Afterwards, unwind, socialize and network at Fraunces Tavern (1762), where Washington bid farewell to his officers.

Out Professionals’ private Walking Tour/Mixer series is designed for us by Joyce Gold History Tours of New York. August’s “Guardian of the Harbor” is an all-time favorite of hers and ours. Joyce teaches Manhattan history at New York University and the New School.

Tour highlights include:

  • Castle Williams, a circular fort built in the years leading up to the War of 1812 to help protect New York City from naval attack
  • Spectacular, Instagram-worthy views of the Lower Manhattan skyline and New York’s harbor
