In the late 1990’s, the US economy made a fundamental shift from an economy driven by manufacturing to one driven by innovation. Almost overnight, this change transformed the field of community and economic development. Our largest companies have embraced technology to improve their efficiencis, and need far fewer employees to reach those goals. Since 2000 more than 10M American manufacturing jobs have become obsolete. Alternatively, companies less than five years old are now the source of all net new jobs, but they have also created churn- and have forced us to change our expectations for how, where and for how long we work. AsMarkTwain once said, “People are all for progress, its change they don’t like.” Through Mo’s % day program, she will help explain the process, enabling attendees to better understand these changes- both those that have happened and that which is ahead. Our goal in hosting this program is to develop strategies to foster entrepreneurship, encourage innovation and re-engage our area workforce. She gets this. Mo represents the economic development field, community leadership, higher education and entrepreneurship. This course will easily be inclusive for the twenty somethings and boomers alike; collectively, Mo brings the wisdom of the old economy with the creative intellect of the new. Deadline to reserve seats is January 10, 2017 Cost: $495/person Group Discount: 2 people from one company $695, 3 people $895 For more information: MyChamber.org Friday, January 13, 2017 Chamber Conference Room 904 E 6th Street, Corona, CA
