Karen Hensley-Chelstowska, Managing Director in Duff & Phelps’ Site Selection and Incentives Advisory practice, will speak at the Women in Economic Development (Win) ED Conference which will be held October 24-26 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The Win ED Conference is designed to provide connection and community, insights and trends, information and inspiration. It combines high-level networking opportunities with best practice economic development topics to offer insight into future industry trends. From panels of leading site consultants and interactive leadership workshops, to one-on-one interviews featuring CREs and CEOs, the Win ED Conference provides you with a mixed-agenda format conducive to connecting, learning and sharing.
Karen will participate on a panel titled, “Business Retention: Incentives for Keeping What You Got!” When existing businesses thrive, so do their communities, but retention strategies require creativity. The session will discuss why new forward thinking methods are key to both retaining businesses and helping them reach their full potential. Using recent case study projects, the panel will share their experiences with retention incentives while identifying new creative incentive strategies.
Karen will also moderate a panel titled, “International Best Practices: How to Gain a Competitive Edge on the Global Stage.” Will the United States continue to retain its status as the world’s most attractive investment location? The answer to that depends largely on future macroeconomic developments and changing global financial conditions. Panelists will share best practices and shine a light on what’s currently driving international companies to consider opportunities in the U.S.
