You never know when you might be followed. If that terrifying circumstance ever arises, this is how to lose that nefarious character that's hot on your heels.

Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms. Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon...

The written word may not be the best way to impress, a new study shows. A better bet: Use your voice.

Trusted Advisor, Executive Coach, and Persuasive Communicator
Introduction

I've helped hundreds of managers and executives in dozens of organizations develop meaningful leadership insights to achieve sustainable personal and organizational growth and change. My approach to leadership education is deeply personal, and often contrarian.

I'm a speaker and panelist who offers unconventional insights in the areas of leadership development, organizational and problem-solving culture, business and cultural trends, economic development, corporate responsibility and sustainability, and life/work balance. I've been engaged as a speaker by groups and companies such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture, GreenFiber, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, Green Mountain Power, Vermont Golf Course Superintendents Association, and the Vermont Community Development Association.

I am a vice president of a medium-sized, publicly traded company. I am an advisor to the company's chairman and chief executive officer on organizational and leadership development, human performance, brand strategy, public affairs, business and market trends, and corporate communications. I'm also an executive coach to over 200 mid- and upper-level managers and numerous work teams.

I'm adjunct instructor, and on the Board of Advisors at the University of Vermont's MBA program, which focuses on Sustainable Entrepreneurship and is designed to create a generation of leaders who will change the way businesses live, lead and profit.

I am currently a member of the board of directors of the Vermont Council on Rural Development and am the chairman of the Steering Committee for Vermont's Economic Development Strategy. I have served on the Vermont General Assembly Speaker’s Business Advisory Council, and am a former member of the board of directors of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. Prior to 1995, I was an Albany, N.Y.-based political and corporate communications consultant serving political candidates, state-level political parties, lobbyists, public affairs advocacy groups and corporate clients throughout the northeastern U.S. I have also held several staff positions in the New York State Legislature.

My wife, Renae, and I are the proud parents of five wonderful children. I am a graduate of the State University of New York at Albany. I am ripening slowly outside Rutland, Vermont, and write irregularly about leadership and other issues that amuse me at www.joefusco.com.

Placed a "to-go" order, but wish I could have stayed. A great atmosphere staffed by smiley, friendly people. And the curry chicken sandwich was delicious. Can't wait to go back when I return to Burlington.

The atmosphere/decor is charmingly unsophisticated, the food - especially the sauce - was delicious, and the prices were modest. Looking forward to going back.
