The financial industry can be intimidating and overwhelming, especially when that’s not your background. Business professionals have enough to worry about in the day-to-day operations of their businesses or their companies. Therefore, the CDCC’s Economic Forecast Breakfast is so important to attend because professionals in the industry will be able to provide people with easy-to-understand language on the highs, lows and ‘need to know’ information that will help you and your business. In addition to the educational benefits, this breakfast meeting of minds will also be a networking opportunity for everyone to connect with each other which may not always be possible on a normal weekday. CDCC hopes that all attendees will take advantage of this educational opportunity to network with professionals outside their direct professional fields.
Attendees can expect to hear from Big Investment Services, the primary sponsor of the event. Founder and Chairman David Boothe will be on hand to address, mentor and provide advice on the current economic market on a national level. The CDCC thanks Boothe and the BIG Investment Services team for not only sponsoring this beneficial event for another year, but also for being trusted experts for the Central Delaware community. Big Investment Services specializes in helping its clients plan for retirement, taxes, personal investing, college, risk management and estate planning.

Expect to hear from Brenda Wise, director of policy and communications at the Delaware Office of Management and Budget. Wise brings a background in Delaware law and the experience of urging budget analysts to consider the financial implications of pending legislation. Wise is passionate about changing the system for Delawares at large, especially in the economic sphere. Everyone present will feel wiser after Wise’s state-of-the-art financial address.
Linda Parkowski, executive director of the Kent Economic Partnership/Choose Central Delaware, will be on hand to share her wealth of knowledge on the economic development of the local area.
