Partnerships In Site Selection

Friday, November 15, 2024 | 9:00 AM

Site selection involves multiple stakeholders, and forging partnerships during the process often creates lasting relationships. This is vital for the success and growth of companies, communities, and states. Strong relationships foster collaboration that can lead to pooled resources, sharing of knowledge and expertise, and innovative solutions to achieve common goals, and even create improved competitiveness.

Mike and Denise will speak from their global experience on the results that have been achieved from first building trust and loyalty with their clients, as well as countless states, communities, and major utility companies. When consultants, economic developers, and state and community leaders communicate with each other and build relationships, they are more likely to confidently share information and rely on each other during challenging processes. The importance of strong and lasting partnerships cannot be overstated.
