Heartland Partnership - Save the Date
Save the Date for the Heartland Partnership family of companies
2011 Annual Meeting
Thursday, September 15, 2011
Bass Pro Shops is a nationally recognized powerhouse in the outdoor sporting industry. It is a destination that millions of people visit every year. Learn how to turn your business and our region into a destination and how to tap into the resources you need to succeed from a key member of the Bass Pro Shops team.
Join The Heartland Partnership family of companies for lunch on September 15 at 11:30 at the Pere Marquette Hotel in Peoria and meet Rob Keck, a member of Bass Pro Shops RedHead Pro Team, Chairman of the Board of the Wonders of Wildlife Museum and former CEO of the National Wild Turkey Federation, as our guest speaker.
Rob brings a stimulating message about how to make our region and your business a destination just as Bass Pro Shops has done. Before joining Bass Pro Shops, Rob grew the National Wild Turkey Federation from 12,000 members to over half a million in a few years, so he truly knows how and why it's important to focus on the "people" aspect of any business. Rob is also an experienced outdoors/sportsman TV host who can teach us how to properly market and promote our assets. His inspirational message will create a "want" in people to do more for this region. After all, this region is a "business" and together we are the ones who can grow this business.
We will also announce community and business award winners from The Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, The Economic Development Council for Central Illinois and The Heartland Partnership.
