Schawbel will share his experience on how to attract, hire and retain Millennial workers born during 1982-1993.

“We’re excited to present the 10th annual Coachella Valley Economic Summit with some new developments, including more dynamic multimedia, a networking lounge, and a keynote speaker who might change the way businesses in the region attract and retain the brightest young employees,” says CVEP board Chairman Rick Axelrod. “With great programming and an influential audience, it will be the business event of the year.”
With more than 800 business and community leaders attending, the one-on-one networking opportunities make the Summit a “must attend” event.

This annual conference is noted as the most comprehensive overview of the Coachella Valley’s recent economic progress and is known for Dr. Husing’s targeted updates on the local economy and related economic trends.
Dr. Husing’s annual economic report card is always a newsmaker. His primary focus over 45 years has been the Inland Empire, studying the changing economic infrastructure and growth of San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
