Join Oregon’s Leading Manufacturers for an Impactful Virtual Experience

MEET JAIME SCHMIDT – KEYNOTE PRESENTER

Jaime will debut her new book, “Supermaker: Crafting Business on Your Own Terms.” All attendees will receive a book via mail! Jaime is founder of Schmidt’s Naturals, Owner of Supermaker & Portland Made and an investor at Color.

READY OR NOT – A COLLABORATIVE AND COMPETITIVE BUSINESS SIMULATION GAME

Participate in an online simulation game that brings real-world manufacturing challenges and opportunities to life to help your company unlock growth. The game provides highly engaging, hands-on experiences and practical lessons in strategic thinking, collaboration, overcoming supply chain challenges and developing agile responses to economic shifts. It is all based on high-priority, high-probability scenarios that are more critical than ever for manufacturers to prepare for.

As a player you will be assigned a team and a role in a fictional manufacturing business and collaborate with your team to understand threats and opportunities. As a team you’ll make strategic decisions to invest limited resources, react to live business news updates and encounter common manufacturing challenges. All along you’ll be competing against other teams to see who can grow revenues and profits the highest and take home the win!
