Event description
If we are going to meet the economic demands of the future, we need to Build Competitiveness by Organizing for Success.

About this Event

On the heels of the release of the For the Benefit of All report by Dr. Robert Murray (October 2019) that provided clear steps in advancing the Regional Growth Management and Servicing Plan to coordinate regional planning and economic development in the Winnipeg METRO Region, we invite you to join us for a special networking lunch with Michael Langley from Langley Economics on Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 11:30 a.m. at TYC Event Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Langley has vast experience in regional economic development and has led many jurisdictions down the regional path with his work in Florida, Pennsylvania, Greater Minneapolis Saint Paul and most recently in Seattle. As the founding CEO of GREATER MSP, the Minneapolis Saint Paul Regional Economic Development Partnership, Langley has guided 300 organizations and over 150 municipalities in 15 counties to realize a successful regional economic development approach to generate a Gross Metropolitan Product of $280 Billion.

Langley’s collaborative global focus has been on building a greater body of knowledge and the regional leadership capacity for municipal leaders and organizations to succeed in building stronger and more livable regions. Langley will share his thoughts and experience on Organizing for Success:

> Five Key Building Blocks for Regional Excellence.

> Components and players needed to create a winning strategy.

> How collaboration allows all players; (public/private sector and civil society) to sit at the table.

> Why strong leadership matters and the role of the City of Winnipeg as an economic engine.

> Using the Regional Growth Management and Servicing Plan as the starting place.

We hope you will join the local leaders from the WMR Winnipeg METRO Region for an insightful keynote address as we learn and explore how we can achieve Regional Excellence to grow Manitoba’s economy!
