I am in the Nashville International Airport waiting for a flight to Philadelphia to attend the 2013 International Economic Development Council (IEDC) Annual Conference. The IEDC Annual Conference is the world’s largest gathering of economic development professionals.
As part of my active participation in the conference, I’ll be speaking on Wednesday, October 9th during the Ignite IEDC segment. Each of us will have exactly 5 minutes and 20 PowerPoint slides advancing every 15 seconds to share a little bit of our economic development knowledge. Having participated in IEDC’s first Ignite session at the 2012 Leadership Summit, I can assure you that this will be a thrill ride for presenters and entertaining and informative for our audience of economic development professionals.
