Brenda Hall, CEO of Bridge360, will speak at the Montana Economic Development Summit, Sept. 13-14 on the campus of the University of Montana. As the Secretary-Treasurer of the U.S. District Export Council National Steering Committee, Hall will speak on a panel focused on trade resources for Montana.
"Montana is already a major exporter in many global markets," said Hall. "It is indeed a privilege to be a part of helping Montana businesses extend their export reach into new markets, and tee up the support resources available for other Montana businesses who want to launch their product export strategy."
The Summit, which has been held every three years since 1995, welcomes more than 2,000 top entrepreneurs, academics, policy makers, corporate representatives, investors and Montana business owners to two full days of keynote addresses and panel discussions. Keynote addresses on Monday include Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft; Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway; Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO of General Electric and Barry Diller, Chairman and CEO of IAC, Chairman of Expedia, Inc. and Chairman of Live Nation Entertainment. Bob Iger, President and CEO of Disney and Sam Gilliland, Chairman and CEO of Sabre Holdings are among the keynote speakers for Tuesday's agenda.
Hall, who is a frequent speaker on international business, especially focused on taking software into international markets including China, is joined on the Trade Resources for Montana panel by Inga Fisher Williams of the SBA Office of International Trade, Courtney Gregoire of the U.S. Commerce Service, National Export Initiative and Dianna Kegel of Towhaul. The discussion will be moderated by Nicole Hagerman of the Montana World Trade Center, and will expand on the National Export Initiative, which supports U.S. businesses in growing their markets by selling their goods and services all across the globe.
The hosts of the 2010 Summit are Senator Max Baucus, the Montana Economic Developers Association and Montana Tech of the University of Montana. Bridge360 has joined in supporting the event as a Red Star Sponsor.
