Course Description:

Major changes in global business patterns have altered the corporate landscape.  New methods of production, challenges to main street, continuing globalization of major markets and the relentless beat of technological innovation have imposed new pressures on the private sector.  The continuing impact of the COVID 19 pandemic has only accelerated many of these transformative processes.
 

What impact will these changes have on economic development in Louisiana ?  Over a day and a half, experts on all facets of Louisiana's economy, including workforce, energy, retail, transportation, logistics and the hospitality industry, will discuss the transformative impact of these changes upon Louisiana's economy.  In addition to private sector representatives, public sector subject matter experts will focus on those significant drivers and challenges that will control the future of Louisiana's state, parish and community economic future.
