It’s not time to hit the beach just yet!
Just before the the masses start to head out of town for Summer vacations, Wilmington is the gathering spot for business executives and government dignitaries, and we were there.
On June 19, The Committee of 100 convened on the grounds of the University and Whist Club… at least until the weather forced the party to move inside. On hand were several local business owners, Governor John C. Carney, Jr., County Executive Matt Meyer, and several other distinguished local government officials. “Despite the rain, we enjoyed spending time with our community’s leaders,” says Joel Pierson, president of Brandywine Technology. The Committee of 100 is comprised of local small and large businesses representing a diverse range of industries, ranging from banking to manufacturing, to academia, among many others. Members focus on addressing issues that affect the economic vitality of Delaware and New Castle County. “We are honored to be a part of The Committee of 100,” shares Pierson.
A few days later, on June 21, members of the Technology Forum of Delaware, in conjunction with Wilmington University and PADLA, the Pennsylvania / Delaware / New Jersey Distance Learning Association, took a dive into the world of sustainable competencies with a presentation by John Royer (pictured), founder of Delaware-based InsiteHub, and Scott Shaw, department chair of the Game Design and Development Program and the Video and Motion Graphics Program at Wilmington University. Topics included application of augmented and virtual reality as they apply to education, as well as the importance of focusing on technology competencies, which are transferable between companies and assignments, ensuring strong employment options for the workforce.
