Brighton Business Week

Brighton Business Week 2017

Celebrate Brighton Business Week in Brighton, CO with the Brighton Economic Development Corporation!

Tuesday, October 3, 2017
 Brighton Armory Performing Arts Center 
 300 Strong St, Brighton, CO 80601
 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Education and Innovation Forum: Workforce of Tomorrow
 “What will the future workforce and economy look like and how do communities innovate to prepare?” Presentation and Panel Discussion, Audience Q&A (light lunch provided).   

  • Paul Francisco, Director of Post-Secondary/Workforce Readiness, School District 27J
  • Stacie Ledden, Director of Innovations and Brand Strategy, Anythink Library
  • Josh Freed, Partner/CEO, Proximity Space
  • Chontel Trujillo, Assistant City Manager, City of Brighton
  • Ray Johnson, Corporate Citizenship & Affairs Manager, IBM

Vic Ahmed will provide a presentation on the topic and incorporate how IP works with its partners in this space. Each panelist will also be given time to briefly describe their organization’s current efforts and ideas on the topic. Vic would then act as moderator for a discussion to tease out innovative ideas, potential partnerships and programs, best practices, etc. Audience members would also be engaged in Q & A. 

The panel portion of the program will occur between 10:00 and 12:00. Lunch/networking will be available at noon (or whenever the panel discussion ends). I think Vic’s presentation should be about 15 minutes with the panelists given about 3-5 minutes each. The rest of the time would be moderated discussion.
