Manufacturing Leader Buzz Session: Productivity in the New Normal

September 8, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Webinars are helpful. Talking with peers is vital. We’ve designed a unique opportunity to share with peers the tips and strategies that guide you and your company.

September 8 Session: Productivity in the New Normal

U.S. manufacturing productivity has been on the decline over the past decade. This erodes your company’s profits, ability to compete and to pay competitive wages. The pandemic is reshaping ways of doing business. Mixed with the challenges of this crisis is also opportunity. Let’s share and learn together about how we are thinking about future investments for productivity.

Facilitator: David Boulay, President | IMEC

What the Buzz Session Is: These invite-only interactive 60-90 minute sessions focus on critical topics in a small group peer setting. Manufacturing leaders sharing and learning from one another. Topics are based on leader priorities related to key drivers for global competitiveness. These are lightly facilitated conversations. The topic and your starting questions will be shared in advance of the roundtable. Active participation by all attendees will impact the vibrancy of the conversation.

What the Buzz Session Is Not: The Manufacturing Buzz Session is not a sit-back-and-listen presentation. And definitely not a sales pitch!

Who: Up to 10 manufacturing owners/senior leaders, plus an IMEC facilitator and note taker. Participation is exclusive to leaders from Illinois manufacturing companies.

Why: Ask for peer advice; share and learn best practices; network with other manufacturing leaders from across the state. And who knows, maybe you’ll form business opportunities together!

Where: Sessions are hosted on a virtual platform, with all participants using video.

How: Complete the form below to express your interest in participating.
