For the Press Times
BROWN COUNTY – The largest regional economic development event in Northeast Wisconsin – the New North Summit – will be held on Thursday, June 8, at the Lambeau Field Atrium in Green Bay.
Registration is now open at www.newnorthsummit.com, with an early-bird entrance fee available through April 15.
New North Board Co-Chairs Michelle Schuler, of Microsoft, and Sachin Shivaram, of Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry, will welcome business and community leaders from across the region.
Three national “thought leaders” with ties to the New North region – Sharon Glover of Thrivent, Corey Behnke of LiveX and Ben Kvalo of Netflix – will provide keynote addresses for the event.
New North President and CEO Barb LaMue will also highlight many of the organization’s programs and initiatives in her President’s message.
Attendees also will hear from Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).
Schuler will recap the five-year journey of the TechSpark by Microsoft program, which was piloted in the New North region and since expanded to a national level.
“Great presenters and networking are the hallmark of the New North Summit,” said LaMue, “and we are confident that this year’s agenda will meet the high mark set by prior events. Our three keynote addresses will be provided by national thought leaders in the areas of innovation, community and corporate culture. We also look forward to sharing New North initiatives which are making a tangible impact on the region.”
Entertainment during the 2:30-4:30 p.m. networking reception will be provided by Shawn Connelly, a vocalist, guitarist and producer from the region.
An interactive gallery highlighting the “Cool Stuff” campaign will be featured at the reception.
