Massachusetts Business Climate Summit: Growing and competing for jobs in 2013. February 15, 2013, 7:30AM - 10:30AM.
Is Massachusetts on the rise or leveling off as an economic center? Join the Boston Business Journal and the State House News Service for two lively panel discussions.
The Massachusetts Business Climate Summit, brought to you by the Boston Business Journal and the State House News Service, will explore steps to make Massachusetts a more competitive place to do business. The capacity of Massachusetts to attract, retain and incubate businesses is widely seen as more important than ever — but rarely scrutinized in depth. The Massachusetts Business Climate will gather business and political leaders to pose the question: How do we make the Commonwealth a better, more inviting place to do business? For the first time, we will bring together the people who are actually growing the jobs and those who are in charge of paving the way for more business growth.
Panel 1: Fast-growth company CEOs weigh in on the business climate: Should they grow here or elsewhere?
Panel 2: Reregulating Massachusetts for business growth — how does the commonwealth become a better partner for business?
Plus: Introducing the Boston Business Journal Job-Grower Award program: Honoring three companies that have a strong track record of growing jobs in Massachusetts over the past three years.
The Annual Meeting is one of the most widely recognized pan-science events, with networking opportunities and broad global media coverage. An exceptional array of speakers will gather at the 2013 AAAS Annual Meeting from 14-18 February in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Beauty and Benefits of Science meeting theme highlights the “unreasonable effectiveness” of the scientific enterprise in creating economic growth, solving societal problems, and satisfying the essential human drive to understand the world in which we live.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will welcome thousands from the scientific community and hundreds of members of national and international media to participate in seminars, plenary and topical lectures, and over 150 symposia.
Good boards constantly assess risk and make plans to reduce and manage risk. But sometimes unexpected—often unexpectable—events occur, including fraud, forensic accounting, foreign corrupt practices, and natural disaster. How do you handle a crisis so big that it threatens the company’s strategy or even its survival? How can you prepare in advance to make the best of a bad situation? We will hear some best practices from expert crisis consultant Lissa Perlman, of Kekst & Co., then discuss real life situations with a panel of sitting directors.
About our Panel:
Lissa Perlman is a Partner of Kekst and Company and a member of its Operations Committee. She has assisted some of the largest companies around the globe in managing unexpected events and has developed best practices for immediate and long-term crisis management.
