Join us as we recognize the ATHENA Award, Daniel Whitney Award, and Outgoing Chairman Award recipients; and learn more from the evening's keynote speaker about how to continue growing a prosperous Greater Green Bay.
Keynote Speaker: Brad Smith, president of Microsoft
Smith will be discussing how to enhance technology and innovation in the business model, along with expanding on Microsoft’s partnership with the Green Bay Packers. With innovation being a key piece of the Greater Green Bay Area Economic Development Strategic Plan, we are excited to have Smith expand on how technology and innovation are important to economic growth and prosperity. In 2014, the New York Times called Smith “a de facto ambassador for the technology industry at large.” His expertise and experience are exceptional, he has played a leading role within Microsoft and in the IT sector on government surveillance, privacy, intellectual property, immigration and computer science education policy issues.
