Leadership Unplugged is designed to be a series of conversations with Maine leaders around issues of economic importance. It provides opportunities for leaders from all over Maine and across sectors to come together in intimate, relaxed settings to discuss the pertinent issues of the day and build the relationships that will allow us to move Maine forward.

MDF is excited about our 2012 series. Our focus this year is "Empowering Maine People to Power Maine's Economy."  For that to happen, Maine people need to be educated, they need to be healthy, they need to have outlets for their creativity, and they need to be engaged in Maine in a way that keeps them here and attracts others to our great state.  We have lined up four excellent speakers:  Michael Dubyak, President & CEO, Wright Express (Feb. 9); Michael Duguay, Director of Development, City of Augusta (March 14); Charles Hewett, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, The Jackson Laboratory (April 10); Charles "Wick" Johnson, President & Owner, Kennebec Technologies (May 9).

MDF Invites You to Attend - Session 2

Wednesday, March 14, 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. (includes breakfast)
Expanding Maine's Entrepreneurial Capacity: The Magic of "What If?" in the "What If?" Economy

Colby College, Waterville
Parker Reed Room in the Schair Swenson Watson Alumni Center

Registration fee per person (includes breakfast):
$15 MDF members
$20 MDF non-members

Our conversation will be with Michael Duguay, Director of Development, City of Augusta, and Co-Founder Kennebec Valley Entrepreneurial Network. Mike is a veteran of Maine’s economic development community, working at the local, regional, and state levels through his career.  His experiences have taught him one thing – Maine needs to tackle economic development in a different way.  The traditional approach is missing the mark and we have to shift our focus to meet the needs of the individual entrepreneur.  Mike will present his new vision of economic development in Maine and will speak to some of the efforts he has set in motion with the recently formed Kennebec Valley Entrepreneurial Network.
