Director, Economic Development Program, University of Waterloo

The list of things that keep economic developers up at night is growing, and Brock is back to sort through the causes of our newest nightmares. From AI to armed conflict, and from economic uncertainty to (gasp!) American politics, this session will look at how tomorrow is different from what we were expecting, and how our communities can prepare for what comes next! As always, Brock will bring a mix of facts and funny to a fast-paced session designed to help you sleep better!
