Networking interactions preceded lunch and continued until the speakers were introduced.
Chamber President Bob Chadwick introduced Matt Meyer, County Executive of New Castle County.
Matt reminisced a bit regarding his teaching days, and how he crossed paths with serial entrepreneur Dr. Bryan Tracy, Keynote speaker at the event.
Listeners tuned in as Brian commented on the strengths and weaknesses of Delaware’s economic culture. It was refreshing hearing Brian speak truth to power!
He reviewed the rise and fall of corporations coming to and exiting Delaware, and some of the ways we can still draw companies & workers back.
I found it particularly insightful how our colleges and universities can succeed at attracting the best and brightest minds in engineering
by highlighting laboratory curricula that gives priority to innovation.
IF you didn’t make it to this event, it would be a good idea to put the next one on your calendar.
The networking alone is worth the price of admission!
Hope to see you at the next chamber event,
or at your own special occasion
or when we update your headshots!
