THE EcDev Network by economic professionals for professionals and businesses in local economies are discussing Uber As A Transit System - Town of Innisfil Case Study with Paul Pentikainen and Arjan van Andel THE EcDev Network was selected by Feedspot as one of the Top 10 Economic Development Podcasts on the web. https://blog.feedspot.com/economic_development_podcasts/ Dan Taylor, Bob Minhas and Lara Fritts, host a twice weekly clubhouse call focused on Economic Development.  The call is for those interested in Community and  Economic Development. This includes elected officials, economic development & tourism professionals, businesses and community members.  Each week Bob, Dan and Lara feature a different theme. Here are some notes from Ryan Hamadeh, thank-you Ryan.  Thanks Arjan van Andel and Paul Pentikainen for being speakers in today's clubhouse convo on: Using Uber as part of your Public Transportation. Some tidbits: 1. Uber is partnering with municipalities to increase transit capacity when demand density is low. 2. It is a cost effective model for municipalities since cost is flexible and dependent on the number of rides and usage; contrary to public transit where costs are fixed and on a per hour basis. 3. The partnership can also help businesses with transportation issues and be subsidized by government. 4. Safety functionalities are being integrated on the app for those wary of safety issues with Uber. 5. The partnership also allows Uber to redirect passengers to transit facilities; Uber noticed that demand is price sensitive and drops when fares are north of $20. 6. Public transit is ineffective when it comes to the last mile and to low density areas, solutions will need to be more personalized and that's where Uber can step in.

Give it a listen, there are some great discussions on Supply Chain Management - What is it and why should we care with Alia Abbas Tidbits from Ryan Hamadeh: 1. FDI and BRE are looking to join their functions; based on our knowledge of the gaps faced by local businesses, FDI should collaborate with BRE team to bring in companies that would support local businesses in their supply chain gaps. 2. Business continuity plans are supper important. Your businesses should have a plan, and your community should understand the weak points of those businesses so that in an emergency, the right support is immediately made available. 3. Smaller communities should look at forging regional partnerships. Leverage your strengths and make yourself heard through regional partnerships. 4. Information sharing: it is crucial that information is shared transparently between the different stakeholders in a community and between regions. Google for examples makes it a point to collaborate with smaller businesses to foster innovation through a culture of information sharing. 5. Larger firms end up leaving the community in case of a disaster but not smaller ones. SME's have strong links to the community. 6. SME's could prevent overwhelming closure if they have a business continuity plan in place; a plan that big businesses already have. 7. Digital supply chain requires a robust cyber security infrastructure. 8. Map your community and understand the businesses who are at the highest risk of closure.

Give it a listen, there are some great discussions on Talent & Training Featuring Jake Maxwell of Salt Lake City Economic Development. Thank you Jake Maxwell for being part of today's EcDev Clubhouse Convo and providing insights on Talent and Traning. Some tidbits from Ryan Hamadeh: 1. Communities should move upstream and target high school students; preparing high school students early on and aligning them to industry is important - If they show their value and commitment to companies while in school, they might convince them to pay for their university tuition. 2. Micro credentials are booming; the importance is the accreditation and ensuring that it serves industry. Micro credentials are low cost, relevant and quick to adapt. 3. Make sure to penetrate the K-12 program and get industry involved with schools; faculty and curriculum should be nimble enough to adapt to industry. 4. Apprenticeship programs train and pay at the same time, they educate, ensure employment and also pay; can't get better than that. Apprenticeships are not only in manufacturing but also involved in R&D training --> Biotech. 5. There is a major issue with post-secondary institutions; they do not prepare students sufficiently for the workforce, they're expensive and time consuming. Change is imminent. 6. New KPI metrics should be adopted including community participation and upward mobility. These are raw, uncut and unedited recordings. Think of them as unplugged. These podcasts are not about production values, but about the content of the conversations. We hope you enjoy.

Economic Development is Not For Amateurs with Jay Garner
THE EcDev Network by economic professionals for professionals and businesses in local economies are discussing Strategic Planning in Economic Development. Note: For some Reason Dan's audio failed...just skip to the next speaker the content is amazing.  Dan Taylor, Bob Minhas and Lara Fritts, host a twice weekly clubhouse call focused on Economic Development.  The call is for those interested in Community and  Economic Development. This includes elected officials, economic development & tourism professionals, businesses and community members.  Each week Bob, Dan and Lara feature a different theme. Give it a listen, there are some great discussions on Economic Development is Not For Amateurs with Jay Garner. Some tidbits from today's convo - thanks Ryan Hamadeh fro the notes: 1. No Product, No Project: You cannot sell from an empty wagon; so make sure your community has identifiable assets to attract business investment. 2. Leadership & Courage are the two key component portrayed by successful economic developers. 3. EcDev success is also characterized by successful private + public partnerships --> economic developers have a responsibility to educate policy makers and elected officials. 4. Labor force readiness & technical schools are two component of EcDev that have taken on a substantial level of importance in the along the years. 5. Community college and technical schools have an upper hand to traditional research institutions because their curriculum adapts quicker to industry needs. 6. EcDev & Site Selection is a relationships business; technology (virtual site visits) have served to shorten in-person visit times. 7. USMCA has leveled the playing field but key considerations regarding manufacturing costs still exists. Countries should focus on their strengths and bring forward a value prop. on target markets. 8. Near shoring or reshoring is not obvious. Cost considerations still carry a heavy weight. If companies decide to repatriate supply chains to North America, they will probably move to Mexico. 9. Talent is the new currency --> build you talent pipeline; apprenticeship programs (German model) is effective. Community college's occupational training programs are also very effective. 10. Follow the cluster: Companies are clustering around government national security facilities, ex. Microsoft in Atlanta. These are raw, uncut and unedited recordings. Think of them as unplugged.

Give it a listen, there are some great discussions on "Fact, Fiction and Story Telling" from Seasoned Economic Developers. Summary Notes by Ryan Hamadeh. Thank you to Maureen Donohue Krauss, Barry Matherly and Clarence L. Hulse for sharing your Economic Development stories in today's Clubhouse Convo. Our speakers spoke about their experiences as economic developers; we listened to their enriching paths and learned from their advise. My takeaways: 1. There are multiple paths to EcDev; commonalities include love for: helping the community, public policy, business process. 2. Maureen Donohue Krauss would advise to be initiated to EcDev through local community work. Locals are the final decision makers and smaller communities offer a wide scope into the field. 3. Covid learnings: communities with strong BRE networks were resilient; Econ. developers had to adapt to technology and the virtual world. 4. Data points do not make sense by themselves, they offer perspective only within a storyline. One data point offers multiple perspectives. 5. Virtual Site Selection helps us include key decision makers early on in the process. 6. Pieces of advise: be a lifelong learner; know your customer and partners; take time off; find a mentor; learn emotional intelligence. These are raw, uncut and unedited recordings.

Data is hot, make sure your community has adequate water & power infrastructure to accommodate data centers. 4. Myths: Companies are not reshoring; Death of cities is exaggerated. 5. Future of Workplace is uncertain, no consensus yet. Each industry & company is reacting differently. Remote work has compliance and regulatory hurdles. 6. Inflation is a problem if it's long term. 7. Virtual site selection is here to stay but it will not replace the human element needed when shortlisting. 8. Communities should invest in Research, Marketing and Infrastructure.
