Terry Campus to host Kent County Economic Summit Sept. 22
Dover, Del. – The Delaware Tech Terry Campus will host the seventh annual Kent County Economic Summit Tuesday, Sept. 22, in its on-campus conference center.
The program starts with opening remarks at 7:50 a.m., followed by featured speakers and panel presentations. Keynote address by Lisa Flowers is scheduled to begin at 11:15.
Presented in collaboration with the Central Delaware Business and Entrepreneurship Consortium, the Economic Summit brings together more than 200 citizens, community members, businesses, education leaders and local government officials to network and move forward the common goal of improving the economic conditions and quality of life in Kent County.
“It’s valuable because attendees get updated on current initiatives – the ‘what’s happening’ in Kent County and the state, and it helps to identify future opportunities in various areas of business, industry, education and government,” said Lisa Strusowski, director of workforce development and community education at Delaware Tech.
Strusowski said the summit will serve to accelerate Kent County’s economic progress by serving as a venue to inform stakeholders, articulate current initiatives, facilitate and identify opportunities for collaborative initiatives, identify future opportunities and stimulate action.
Flowers, founder and CEO of Flowers Media Matters, has titled her talk, “Traditional, Digital, and Social Marketing into Your Business.” Bernice Whaley, Director of Delaware Economic Development Office, and Delaware Tech President Mark Brainard will offer opening remarks.
The agenda includes an economic outlook of the Kent County landscape and a panel session about opportunities and partnerships in Kent County.
Registration for the event is $30 and includes breakfast and a networking lunch. To register, go to www.dtcc.edu/economicsummit or call (302) 857-1400.
