NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/02/11 -- The American Institute for Stuttering (AIS) will host its Fifth Annual Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala on Tuesday, June 7th. Actress Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, Queen Victoria), also an AIS board member, will host the event. The evening will honor Arthur Blank, Co-founder of The Home Depot and Owner of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. Both Emily and Arthur have personally dealt with stuttering and have chosen to share their stories with the public. Communications guru Michael Sheehan, Riki Sheehan and Coach Joe Moglia, Chairman of TD Ameritrade and Head Coach of the Omaha Nighthawks, are serving as Co-Chairs for the event. The reception will be followed by dinner and a much-anticipated "Freeing Voices, Changing Lives" Leadership Award presentation.
The King's Speech has thrust the plight of stuttering into the spotlight and it has been an enormous boost to stutterers because it demonstrates that anyone can have a stuttering disorder -- even a King. It has also been a great promotional benefit for AIS because it has drawn attention to the comprehensive programs that we provide for members and their families.
Following is an outline of the evening's agenda:

About American Institute for Stuttering (AIS):
AIS was founded in 1998 by Catherine Montgomery (1951-2010), who was an internationally recognized speech-language pathologist with 30 years of experience dedicated exclusively to the study and treatment of stuttering. AIS is the only non-profit organization in the United States that offers specialized speech therapy to people who stutter of all ages, and guidance to their families. AIS provides much needed clinical training in stuttering to speech-language pathologists and students. The mission extends to advance public and scholarly understanding of this often misunderstood disorder.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
