Keynote speaker Dr. Bill Conerly, economic advisor to hundreds of business and institutions, presented a provocative overview of current business challenges and opportunities, and a forecast for the future. The March issue of Teamwork features a summary of his presentation, for which you can find the slides here.
It’s an EDB tradition to get together with 560 of our closest friends to fete local business. This year we kicked off the event by awarding the 2017 Golden Shovel to Point Ruston. Through the vision of father-son developer team, Mike and Loren Cohen, the former SuperFund site has become a hot destination featuring dining, shopping, sweeping views, a plush movie theatre, and luxury condominiums. Next, Dr. Bill Conerly used his wit to teach us what it means to have a “flexible stance in a boom/bust economy.”
After unveiling the 2017 EDB Excellent 10, we wrapped up our annual celebration of development happening around Pierce County.
