2018 Industrial Executive Forum- RSVP Now!

May 16, 2018

We look forward to seeing many of you at the 2018 Industrial Executives Forum on Wednesday, May 30th from 8:00-11:30am at the Blue Ridge Conference Hall in the TED Center at Blue Ridge Community College. For those of you who have not RSVP’d, the forum’s key purpose is to provide the opportunity for leadership from the various industries in Henderson County a chance to come together to promote the exchange of ideas and networking between stakeholders in our local manufacturing community.

Our program this year will focus on engaging and retaining millennials and best practices in intergenerational communication in the workplace. As workforce tightens across the nation, our hope is that as a  community we can become equipped with skills and ideas to attract young talent, maximize results and productivity utilizing a multi-generational workforce.

The Dale Carnegie Training Institute of Charlotte & WNC will facilitate an interactive training workshop during the forum that will provide tangible results as industry participates share best practices and cultivate new ideas. Dale Carnegie Institute has cross-sector experience, but has delivered similar training to many manufacturers in North Carolina.

Each year, we are able to see positive results from connections made at these events; your participation is key to the success of the event. Your engagement with the forum ensures that our manufacturing community, our local economy and our workforce continues to grow stronger and more secure.
