Location: Raffel’s Catering, 10160 Reading Road, Cincinnati, OH 45241
Date: Tuesday May 24, 2016
Time: 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Topic:
Maintaining Innovators or Innovating Maintainers? / Building the First “Steamship” in History, with Quality in Mind

Summary:
Historian and author John Laurence Busch will attempt to re-calibrate your mind before showing why the proposition of making the first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean on a “steamship” was met with a mixture of skepticism and fear. Then he will show how Captain Moses Rogers addressed those fears, by using modern concepts of quality to build the first steamship in history. The presentation is based upon his book, “STEAM COFFIN: Captain Moses Rogers and The Steamship Savannah Break the Barrier.”

STEAM COFFIN has received widespread praise and acclaim, as evidenced by more than two dozen positive reviews in periodicals from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.

John’s tour for STEAM COFFIN so far has taken him from Maine to Puerto Rico to California, and across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe, where he has made over 300 presentations before a wide variety of audiences.

“Busch’s supremely readable account…represents the creation of a long-needed missing piece of maritime history…It may properly be termed a page-turner, and is strongly recommended.”
– (mt) Marine Technology Magazine

“A beautifully written and engaging narrative…John Laurence Busch has made a major contribution to American maritime history with this fine book.” – Naval War College Review

Description: Speaker: Larry Falkin
Larry Falkin is the Director of the City of Cincinnati’s Office of Environment and Sustainability (OES). OES is leading the implementation of the Green Cincinnati Plan, and moving both City government and the broader community toward sustainability.

Many people believe that environmental, economic and social goals are at odds with one another. That helping the environment would hurt profits, or that more food for humans means less land for wildlife. In practice, there is no such competition. Over and over again, we see that well-designed projects provide multiple benefits; and projects that attempt to maximize benefits of one type at the expense of others often fail to achieve that primary objective.
