Event Description

2010 and the New Economy

In a world that's been "reset" by a sharp worldwide recession, accelerating climate change and a collapse of trust in business--the implication and opportunities for local business are enormous. Billions of dollars are being invested to stimulate the economy and most of that money is going toward energy efficiency. The local food sector is soaring. There are new opportunities in the building industry through building performance and energy efficiency. Localization is a new marketing tactic for all - big/small and near/far.

Now is an essential opportunity to learn how to leverage your resources, implement changes, and succeed in a world where business as usual is no longer viable. Come and learn what these changes in the marketplace and the new economy mean to your business, and your community.

We really are at a crossroads, with promising paths in front of us. With few signposts to guide us, we get to create innovation here and now!

A friend suggested this would be the best-bet local conference for inspiration and addressing "How might this conference, local business, or specific speakers concepts bring about transition in our community that makes for a functioning Whatcom County -- a healthy community that will survive should we have an energy crisis, climate change, etc.
I would like to learn how our county business sector might remain robust in challenging times. This conference seems like I can find out some answers!"
