Treacy & Company Management Consulting Information Session

Treacy & Company is a management consulting firm that is dedicated to helping its clients grow faster, more profitably, and more steadily than before. The firm believes that the measure of its success is results – not pretty PowerPoint presentations, not gotcha! analyses, not 2x2 frameworks – but, results measured on clients’ income statements and share values.

Over the years, the firm has accumulated a lot of insight about what it takes to drive growth, but customers benefit from that knowledge only when it is delivered through skilled and experienced project teams. For that reason, Treacy & Company believes it is in all stakeholders' best interests to help every team member develop skills and accumulate experience as effectively and as rapidly as possible. The firm takes new hires' development very seriously and dedicates long hours to reviewing performance, creating development plans, and training & coaching each individual in the science and the art of corporate growth.

In addition to that, the firm offers:
- An exclusive focus on Strategy, Growth, and Innovation engagements
- Proven intellectual capital that integrates creative qualitative skills and quantitative techniques
- An ability to personally influence the growth and development of the firm
- An entrepreneurial and collaborative culture

“Do Things to Images”: An Exhibition by Odette England

Do Things to Images presents for the first time a selection of photographs from 2014 to 2019 by the artist Odette England. It includes images from her newest series Love Notes.

England’s parents’ former dairy farm, and the archive of snapshots her family made there, serve as raw material for England’s practice. Many of her photographs are unique pieces. By mixing preciousness with low-fi, unrepeatable processes, England highlights the infidelity of memory.

This exhibition includes prints from negatives that England buried and then dug up, and hand-torn paper prints. It features pages ripped from family photo albums, and vintage snapshots that have been hole-punched, among other works. Her need to cut, crop, sand, fold and otherwise manipulate photographs is in contrast to the French meaning of her name, Odette, “Lover of Home.”

Join Odette England for a lecture and the opening of her exhibition on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 4:30 p.m. in Pruyne Lecture Hall, 115 Fayerweather.
