The annual State of Our Community Luncheon reviews the state of business, education, and community around Greensboro and Guilford County through a series of speakers around a particular topic. This event attracts senior-level business and community executives in Greensboro.
We’ve mentioned several times now that communities which get workforce development correct will be the communities that succeed. Well, we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. Come to see how the state of our community has never been stronger when it comes to building a better workforce from the ground up.
To speak on the national trends in workforce development and talent retention, we’re excited to announce our keynote speaker: Rebecca Gehman. Rebecca is the Director of Talent Attraction at Development Counsellors International, the leader in marketing places. She is also the co-author of “Talent Wars: What People Look for in Jobs and Locations.”
