One of the greatest things about our organization, EO Detroit, is our ability to tap our members to leverage their experience and expertise.
Several years ago, Toastmasters did a study of 3,000 people and asked, “What are you most afraid of?” Public speaking was number one. Death was actually number six!
I get it. I really do. We live in the Motor City and the auto industry is our bread and butter. It has and will continue to be a primary driver of our local economy.
This year a Transportation Reauthorization bill will be negotiated at the federal level. This will shape transportation policy and funding for the next several years, and Michigan will need to be prepared in order to move important projects forward.
It’s time for us to work collectively on changing the conversation about Detroit — this is something I feel particularly passionate about.
The economic environment of the Detroit region is not predicted to change in the immediate future; however, our local and statewide leadership is.
