More than 100 Richmond business leaders are gathering today to explore how businesses can adapt to an evolving economy and build resilience.
Hosted by Mayor Malcolm Brodie and city councillors, the 2022 Business and Partner Appreciation Event is being held for the first time since it went on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To kick off the event, Jean-Francois Perrault, Scotiabank's chief economist, will be providing an analysis of "the current state of global growth prospects and financial markets." Participants will then launch into a discussion into recovery and resilience in an evolving economy.
Local business leaders in attendance will include Nancy Small, Tourism Richmond CEO; Shaena Furlong, Richmond Chamber of Commerce CEO; Mike McNaney, YVR VP and chief external affairs officer; and Paul Tilbury, chair of the city's economic advisory committee.
The event is being held at the Wilson School of Design at Kwantlen Polytechnic University today (Sept. 27) at 12:15 p.m.
