She speaks throughout the United States and Canada. This New Economy seminar will provide a foundational look at economic development in the 21st century. Topics will include: 1) global economic trends and the profound impact these changes are having upon our local communities; 2) emerging best practices in entrepreneurship, innovation and workforce; and 3) strategies to build healthy 21st century communities. Mo will share on economic development, technology transfer and commercialization, entrepreneurs and technology, the innovation economy and small business. This 4-hour seminar will be available for a limited number of seats. Register online at www.MyChamber.org for this class. The class will begin at 7am, with light breakfast available from 6:30am. In the late 1990s, the U.S. 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 efficiencies, and need far fewer employees to reach those goals. Since 2000, more than 10M American manufacturing jobs became obsolete. Conversely, entrepreneurs and their young companies 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. As Mark Twain once said, “People are all for progress; it’s change they don’t like.” The session 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.
