190 Bluegrass Leaders Set for Omaha Leadership Visit
The 2013 Commerce Lexington Inc. Leadership Visit to Omaha, Nebraska, presented by CHASE / J.P. Morgan is fast approaching and the agenda is taking shape. The Bluegrass delegation will hear from key Omaha leaders and take a look at what has made the city an attractive place for business and industry, young people, start-ups, high-tech, major events like the College World Series, arts and culture, and more.
The Bluegrass delegation will spend the first day’s sessions in Omaha at Mammel Hall, which is the home of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s College of Business Administration. Jeremy Pietrocini, senior consultant with Gallup Inc., will help make the comparisons between Omaha and Lexington, and we’ll hear from Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, and David Brown, President & CEO of the Omaha Chamber.
Day two in Omaha will feature a panel that will include representatives from four of Omaha’s Fortune 500 companies, a discussion on philanthrophy efforts in Omaha, and a panel of the city’s young professionals. Some of the elective sessions later in the day include a downtown walking tour, a residential development tour, a behind-the-scenes look at CenturyLink Center and TD Ameritrade Ballpark, and the opportunity to interact with Omaha’s young professionals.
Friday’s sessions will include presentations on regional partnering with a look at the relationship between Omaha and Lincoln, and how it compares to Lexington-Louisville, followed by an interactive session with Terry Kroeger, long-time CEO and Publisher of the Omaha World Herald and current Board Chairman of the Omaha Chamber.
