We held a fast-paced and interactive discussion on growing the global business innovation ecosystem in metro Phoenix, from technology to talent, exporting, financing, logistics and more. The event featured 20 keynote speakers along with panels and groups of attendees connecting through breakouts and report-backs. The event supports the region to develop a stronger foundation for international business growth.
The keynote speakers included Senator Kyrsten Sinema, and we thank the Senator for her leadership and involvement, along with her long-term support of the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. and of Arizona exporters. Jamie Casap, chief education evangelist at Google, also delivered another extra-special presentation. Casap kicked things off for us and set the tone squarely on innovation, technology and progress.
We also thank our sponsors Thunderbird School of Global Management, Weichert Workforce Mobility, Gary Covert Consulting, Lee & Associates, Victor Assad Strategic Consulting, City of Phoenix, City of Scottsdale, City of Peoria, City of Surprise, ENP Institute, JP Morgan Chase, Spencer Fane and Arizona Relocation Association. Watch for more in 2020!
