“Adapt & Advance” is the theme of Manufacturing Matters! 2021, and this year’s conference will share insights into how organizations and individuals can overcome challenges and turn disruptions into opportunities for growth. The manufacturing landscape remains dynamic, and the new economy favors those who position themselves to succeed regardless of market forces and disruptions.
We are very excited for this year’s conference which features two terrific keynote speakers who are experts at thriving in challenging circumstances.
Our morning keynote speaker is Mike Evans, an award-winning author/speaker who has worked with 31 Fortune 50 companies. Mike served in executive leadership and consulting roles with Kotter International, FranklinCovey, and Tom Peters Company. Mike is an expert on the topic of disruption, and he will speak to how companies can thrive and excel in the new world of work.
Very few among us have encountered, much less overcome, challenges like the ones faced by Jim Davidson, our afternoon keynote speaker. Davidson is a New York Times Best-Selling author of The Ledge: An Inspirational Story of Friendship and Survival, and was featured on the International TV show I Shouldn’t Be Alive on the Discovery Channel. Jim will share stories, lessons and techniques for overcoming adversity and reaching lofty goals.
