#4 A City Built On Manufacturing
Play • 27 min
This week on the Where’s Willie? Podcast, Willie travels to Winchester, Virginia to talk to George Hoddinott and his associates from the City of Winchester about the central role of manufacturing and how the city supports this. Recognized by Forbes as the number one place in Virginia for business and careers, the city is resolutely committed to attracting and retaining young talent for its industries. We discuss all the things the city is doing to positively impact lives through manufacturing, including coordination of various departments of local government, the education system, and incentive programs. The panel talks about the way the city views promoting college versus career decisions and also how there is still some work to be done in changing negative connotations of the manufacturing sector. We look at the rise of robotics, virtual and augmented reality, as well as the use of virtual tours for the prospective workforce. For this fascinating conversation about a city that is clearly engaged and dedicated to growing its manufacturing sector in the right way, tune in!____________________________________________________________________________To keep up with your host, William Miller, follow him on Twitter @williekoganei and on Instagram @williekoganei_
