(Beaverton, Ore.) — “Businesses set up for success are those that adapt at an increasing rate of change,” said Steve Smelley, Chief Operating Officer at PayneWest Insurance, the Presenting Sponsor for the 2018 Beaverton Business Summit.
PayneWest is partnering with the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce to roll out the annual Beaverton business event, set for Thursday, November 8.
“Content at the Summit comprises key business-to-business topics designed to be immediately relevant and showcase networking opportunities, so firms can be local, stay local and grow locally,” said Chamber President Lorraine Clarno. “This is a key event illuminating how the chamber works to promote every aspect of our local economy.”
Morning keynoter Victoria Trabosh, a TEDx presenter who espouses a leadership-built-on-wisdom style, will present ‘Leading Change and Facing the Storm,’ about best practices of how businesses of all sizes and shapes must learn to manage change. The afternoon keynote by Bill Tracy, vice president at Structured Communications Systems, homes in on the ‘New User Economy’ to show businesses how to adapt and compete using trends set by large companies.
Content and topics will feature sessions including, “The New Language of Business for Young Professionals,” “3 Proven Steps to Eliminate Abrasive Behaviors (and Harassment) in the Workplace,” “What’s Up Beaverton: Up Close with Beaverton’s Community and Economic Development Experts,” and “Local Electeds: Sharing Oncoming Priorities,” as well as emerging intel on diversity and inclusion, tax law updates, health/wellness in the workplace, social media trends, and small business resources.
“We are also excited to announce the event will also feature the Summit Biz Exch@nge, a local marketplace designed for companies and professionals to interface and network among attendees,” said Rhonda Reister, manager of Beaverton’s E-Suites, and chair of the Beaverton Business Summit 2018.
