Allegheny Conference on Community Development’s Bill Flanagan to Share Lessons Learned from Pittsburgh’s “Great American Comeback” at the 2018 Pittsburgh Business Show

Bill Flanagan, Chief Corporate Relations Officer of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, will share lessons learned in leadership and image-building from Pittsburgh’s “great American comeback” at the Pittsburgh Business Show, a business-for-business trade show and networking event being held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on April 25 and 26, 2018.  In addition to his role with the non-profit economic development organization, Bill has covered the story of Pittsburgh’s transformation for more than 35 years, most recently as producer and host of “Our Region’s Business” on Sunday mornings on WPXI-TV.

His presentation, “Pittsburgh’s Great American Comeback – Lessons Learned in Leadership and Image Building,” will focus on the leadership, strategic planning, and collaboration that set the stage for the global recognition and investment happening in the region today.  As part of the presentation, Bill will share the strategies and tactics that Pittsburgh leveraged and how those same practices can take other organizations to the next level.

“As a member of the Allegheny Conference leadership team, it’s part of my role to spread the word about the Pittsburgh region’s remarkable progress and our dedication to business and workforce development. I’m happy to tell our story at the Pittsburgh Business Show, an organization with similar principles that is leading the charge by taking advantage of the current business climate and the region’s focus on innovation and growth,” said Bill.

This year’s show includes hundreds of exhibitors, networking events, 30-plus presentations and workshops, and the first-ever Business Choice Awards. Those interested in attending the Show and participating in the networking events and presentations can receive two-day discounted tickets.
