Celebrating the 80s in support of the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice

By Chris Grabiec / May 10 2016 / Events, Video, Hamilton

Last week the Dunham Group had the opportunity to be Ruby Red sponsors at the annual Paint the Town Red gala supporting the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice. The event took place at Michelangelo Banquet Centre in Hamilton, Ontario, and as usual, the evening was amazing in every respect.

We also had two guests at our table: Russ and Lori King from BERRN Consulting (AED4Life). As Ruby Red sponsors, we had to sing an 80s song in front of everyone (thankfully John Janisse took the lead). Enjoy the video of our performance!

What's 'wrong' with young people these days… May not be so wrong!

By Chris Grabiec / December 7 2015 / Web Design, Web Marketing

I've been watching some of the young people in my life pretty carefully for the last while as well as some of the "younger" people in my life as well. What I've observed is this: Everything bores them. That may be an overstatement, but likely most readers understand what I'm saying. It is very difficult to motivate the younger generation today – in most things. Here’s the thing…

  • If this is the case – then there is a reason for it
  • Perhaps if we can’t beat them – we should join them

Let's start with the first – the reason for the attitude. That's a tough one to answer. Some might say that it's just that we have handed the young generations their existence on a silver platter. Everything is given to them in abundance and hence the challenge of discovery, of learning or experiencing the universe is not what we expect it to be. The problem is somewhat rampant in China. When I was there this past summer the tour leader indicated that their children want for nothing. If they have an iPhone 5, they come to the parent and tell them that they need the latest iPhone 6.
