Local business leaders and VIPs gathered at the Bayfront Convention Center to meet and host a mission.
The Manufacturer & Business Association held its 116th annual event.
The group hosted a dinner and keynote address to talk about the future of business.
The keynote speaker for Wednesday’s evening was retired US Navy Four-Star Admiral William H. McRaven. He was there to talk about overcoming adversity and what it means to be a key leader in today’s world.
Like so many others over the past year, the group had to wait a year to hear from the Admiral.
“In fact, we planned it last year, due to COVID we ended up having to postpone it, and everyone is extremely happy to have him with us tonight,” said John Krahe, president. and CEO of the Manufacturer and Business Association.
Earlier today, the MBA hosted an event to help students get a better idea of what business careers are like and show them ways to fit in.
