Jon Roberts, TIP principal and managing director, was recently invited to speak at the Welcome Plenary Session of the 2014 Missouri Governor’s conference. His presentation, which kicked off the September conference, addressed issues specific to Missouri’s business climate and future growth opportunities. These issues were informed by a survey of conference participants.
Jon also addressed broader issues affecting the future of economic development, including a thought-provoking discussion of the ways in which disruptive technologies are changing the landscape of society, jobs, and business as we know it. The conference also featured Pulitzer-prize winning author, Thomas Friedman, as the Keynote speaker. Additional information is available through the links below:
