The Forum – An Interactive Learning Experience
The defining characteristic of the Janus Forum is participants identifying key issues facing the economic development and site selection industry and its professionals. Participants select priority topics for further analysis and recommended actions in small group breakout sessions. Forum results are shared through newsletters, social media and other outlets. Special guests — site consultants, corporate executives and subject experts — bring additional perspective to the Forum through panel discussions, breakout sessions and one-on-one interactions with attendees. It all adds up to a unique networking and peer-learning opportunity.
2017 Janus Forum Program
The 2017 will continue the Forum tradition of participants identifying and assessing key economic development issues and opportunities. This year’s Special Guests will add greatly to this peer learning process by bringing their perspectives and experience to the discussions. Guests Will Hearn (CBRE) and John Sisson (Next Move Group) will discuss trends in business location, executives Colby Tanner (BNSF) and Carl Warren (CSX) will address economic development and site selection from the railroad perspective, and industry leader Jim Spohrer (IBM) will discuss location needs and trends for technology companies. Panel discussions and one-on-one conversations with the special guests provide attendees with information and ideas to help them advance their communities.
