Community Forum- Navigating Change In A New Economy - April 18th

Empowered leadership in a time of change is imperative in a strong community. As we continue to navigate an ever-changing economic climate, panelists will share their personal stories of success and shed light on what the future holds for employment and education in Scottsdale and Arizona.

Facilitated by: Jason Rose, Rose + Moser + Allyn Public Relations

Hear from panelists from different sectors in our community including:
Corporate Sector - Sherman A. Jennings, Mesa site leader for Human Resources, The Boeing Company and Chair, Governor’s Council on Workforce Policy How are the city’s largest conventional corporations hiring and recruiting? What are the current opportunities? What (if any) obstacles are they facing in hiring?

New Entrepreneurs - Susie Timm, Head Cheese, Girl Meets Fork Marketing and Media  – Many professionals are leaving (forced or by choice) their conventional jobs and making a career by applying their skills/experience as an out-source re-source.

Innovators - Derek Neighbors, Co-founder, Gangplank The next generation may look different and speak somewhat differently, but they are fearless in taking the business world by storm…their terms, their rules

Education Perspective - Len Jessup, Ph.D., Dean of University of Arizona Eller College of Management  Is there a change? How are they preparing students? What is different? Are they moving fast enough to respond to the changing demands?

Join the discussion at Scottsdale Leadership’s 8th annual Community Forum as we gain insight from our dynamic panel about workforce innovation, corporate change, the new entrepreneur and the state of education.
