Jason Stein of the Wisconsin Policy Forum will lead a conversation between Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Milwaukee County Budget Director Joe Lamers. They will discuss the proposed 2019 County Budget.
Brian “Koby” Kobylinski, Chairman and CEO of Milwaukee-based Jason Industries will provide perspective of ways to manage change in dynamic environments. The capability to adapt and transform is critical in times of rapid technological change and geopolitical uncertainty is important for any organization, regardless of the size or function. Drawing from his over 25 years of diverse industrial experience, Koby will discuss practical methods of how teams first survive then eventually learn to thrive during periods of uncertainty. Team composition, prioritization, dealing with changing tax and trade policy, and the importance of connecting with multiple constituents are among the themes that will be covered.
Wisconsin is working. The unemployment rate has been below 3.0 percent for six straight months, more people are working today than ever before, and we’ve invested historic actual dollars into our classrooms. Our investment in K-12 education and technical colleges prepares our students for the jobs of tomorrow and gives employers across the state access to a quality workforce. We have made great strides – but there is more to be done. That is why Gov. Walker has outlined his agenda to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come. The agenda includes expanding youth apprenticeships for 7th and 8th grade students, debt relief for graduates who live and work in Wisconsin, help for families facing the costs of childcare, and tax credits to help senior citizens stay in their homes. Governor Walker will continue outlining his agenda for the future so that Wisconsin keeps moving forward.
