Business Summit will feature session on workforce trends and growth

We know you, as a small business leader, care about Kentucky’s future. Be a part of the conversation to shape the course of our state. The Seventh Business Summit and Annual Meeting, presented by Bingham Greenebaum Doll PLLC, brings together diverse ideas to answer the question: What are the decisions we have to make to move Kentucky forward? Join us July 16-17 at the Louisville Marriott Downtown for a dialogue on Kentucky that explores solutions and inspires change.

One of the many high caliber speakers participating this year is Ted Abernathy, executive director of the Southern Growth Policies Board, which provides economic development research and advice for 13 Southern states. Abernathy, who has spent 32 years in economic development, will focus his presentation on the future of the South, especially Kentucky. He will discuss current workforce trends and opportunities for growth, covering key topics such as technology and innovation, globalization, talent, civic engagement, cluster development, collaboration and leadership.

The Annual Meeting dinner will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17. The keynote, titled The Great Debate: Election 2012, will feature commentary from Paul Begala, a political analyst for CNN, and William Kristol, a political analyst for Fox.
