About the Event
The Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce and Wichita Educational Foundation have announced that Wichita native Charles Koch will be the featured guest speaker at the Chamber Annual Meeting on Monday, November 2, 2015. Koch is the Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, Inc., a position he has held since 1967.
We're also please to announce that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski from MSNBC’s Morning Joe program will join Mr. Koch on stage for a time of Q & A about his most recent book, Good Profit, How Creating Value for Others Built One of the World’s Most Successful Companies. Published by Crown Business, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, Mr. Koch’s book is scheduled for release on October 13. More information can be found at goodprofitbook.com. Pre-order your signed copy of the book from Watermark Books here.
2015 Chamber Chairman Jon Rosell says that the chance for business leaders to hear directly from Koch is a rare opportunity. Rosell said, “Charles Koch has built Koch Industries into one of the largest and most successful companies in the world. We look forward to hearing him elaborate on his value-added business philosophies and practices.”
Gary Plummer, President and CEO of the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, said, “Our 2015 Annual Meeting promises to be one of the most unique events we've presented in quite some time, and we’re looking forward to hearing from a globally recognized business leader.”
An added feature of this year's event includes the broadcast of the Morning Joe program live from Wichita the following day. More details on this will be forthcoming.
