The Future of Work: How to yield competitive advantages from workplace changes 

Each year the Chamber brings together community leaders and businesses to hear from key local, state and national experts at our Economic Summit. Join us this year where the audience will hear about the changing landscape of economic development from Bill Fournet, President and CEO of The Persimmon Group. Bill loves to solve complex problems for organizations of all sizes, and remains hands-on at Persimmon, consulting clients of all sizes and in many verticals. A sought-after speaker on Generational Diversity, Leadership and Project Management, Bill believes 'we are in the midst of a great transformation." From technology to generational issues, Bill analyzes workforce trends to help you understand the future of work and how to stay ahead of uncertainty. Bill's experience in managing high-performance teams has directly influenced the unique business philosophy and atmosphere that has created one of the leading small businesses today.

Bill earned a bachelor's degree from Vanderbilt University and a master's degree from Oklahoma State University. He has been honored as the Small Business Person of the Year by Tulsa's Metro Chamber of Commerce and is a two-time honoree for "Most Admired CEO" in Oklahoma. He currently serves as a Member of Board of Directors at Boy Scouts of America, Indian Nations. He and his wife, Christy, reside in Tulsa and have three sons.
