By Jill Wells Heath
2015/16 Chamber Chair
CALYX Engineers + Consultants
Take a look around.
From cutting edge companies that employ thousands in RTP to visionary startups that are energizing downtown Raleigh, it's clear that innovation and creativity are flourishing in the Triangle.
At the Chamber's 128th Annual Meeting on Sept. 7, we'll explore our area's changes and challenges and find out what the Chamber is doing to drive success.
Our keynote speaker, Josh Linkner, is no stranger to this topic----he's spent his career harnessing the power of creative disruption. He'll share thoughts on Raleigh, and provide insight on how you can tap into your own creativity to find new levels of success (hint: you don't have to invent the next Uber to be considered "creative").
We'll also honor standout businessman and community activist Gregory Poole Jr. with the A.E. Finley Distinguished Service Award, celebrate some of our accomplishments from the past year, and take a look at the future. I'm personally excited to pass the gavel to our next board chair, Greg Winkler of Wells Fargo.
It's going to be a great night, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there!
