Register Now: 2016 Economic and Leadership Summit

From workforce and employee engagement issues to changing technology to the skyrocketing real estate market, business leaders face an ever-shifting array of challenges and opportunities today. Constant awareness and evolution are vital to staying ahead of the curve and continually gaining momentum.

Please join us for the fifth annual Leadership and Economic Summit on November 29, 2016 at the Multnomah Athletic Club. We've gathered some of the region's most successful business leaders to share how they're approaching today's challenges, offer insight on their success, and discuss what's ahead in 2017.

Economist John Mitchell will return again for a keynote presentation to provide fascinating insight on the key economic trends driving business at the local and national levels. He'll also address questions currently on many business leaders' minds, such as "Why can't I find qualified people?" and "What happens when my employees can't afford to live here?"

Next, Rick Thomas of Pilot Wealth Management will moderate a panel discussion with CEOs who have created companies that employees want to be a part of. Hear directly from Dan Afrasiabi, CEO, Geneva Woods Pharmacy; Dorota Shortell, CEO, Simplexity Product Development, John Kreidel, Former CEO, Tire Factory; and Kyra Bussanich, CEO & Founder, Kyra's Bake Shop on the ways they've developed company culture to drive employee engagement and strengthen their business.
