Business owners and financial executives from the manufacturing and distribution industry gathered at the DoubleTree in Reading on Thursday, September 22, 2016, for RKL’s second annual M&D Growth and Profitability Forum. The theme of the day-long educational event was “The NEW Industrial Revolution,” and attendees were presented with information, insights and strategies to thrive in the shifting landscape facing their industry.
RKL’s event was bookended with keynotes from two experts focused on the future of M&D: Anirban Basu, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Sage Policy Group, Inc., who provided an economic update tailored to the industry, and John McElligott, president of The Fortress Initative and CEO of York Exponential, who discussed how businesses can embrace disruptive and emerging technologies.
Throughout the day, RKL experts helmed breakout sessions on essential topics like operational and process improvement; workforce development and talent recruiting; lesser-known tax credits and incentives; cloud computing solutions; and risk and cyber security.
