Event Description:
"Change is inevitable. Growth is optional."
― John C. Maxwell


Survival in today's global economy requires people and organizations to be
flexible and adapt readily to the ever-changing marketplace, technology, and skill sets.


But change is occurring faster and faster than ever before. 
What use to take 30 years to change, now occurs in five years.
 
Join us for this dynamic, half-day event that brings together
business, education and community leaders to address our biggest workforce issues.
This year, we're talking about change.
