Generating more than $102 billion in economic activity every year, the baking industry is a significant and ever-growing player in the national economy. Spearheading the strategic decisions that power the industry are a phenomenal group of men and women who lead with humble conviction – they keep their heads down, focused on the goal, on both the big picture and the details, on ensuring the success of the company and its employees.
It is not every day we get the opportunity to talk frankly with some of our industry’s top leaders and we’re fortunate to have the chance at the upcoming Executive Leadership Development Committee (ELDC) Baking Industry Leadership Forum, to be held Tuesday October 8 from 5-6:45 PM during IBIE in at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
I hope you have seen the announcements – ABA has assembled an all-star lineup of the industry’s finest executives ready to share with you their leadership philosophies, strategies for identifying top talent, insights on the future of the baking industry and much more. We will hear and learn from Mike McKee, President of McKee Foods Corporation; Paula Marshall, President & CEO of The Bama Companies; Miles Jones, Co-Chairman of Dawn Food Products; and Fred Penny, President of Bimbo Bakeries USA.
This is one of those events you simply cannot miss. I hope you will join us and hear the stories of the best and brightest the baking industry has to offer, and take away new ideas on how to build valuable networks, generate key contacts and improve upon your own leadership model for the future.
Proceeds from this important industry event will benefit ELDC’s Public Policy Forum annual program agenda. Secure your tickets today for the ELDC Forum at www.americanbakers.org or directly at ELDC Leadership Forum Online Registration
