Let’s Change Our Trajectory
The Wichita Community Foundation has engaged Reach Advisors, founded by Wichita native James Chung, for a multi-year, deep-dive predictive analytics project about the region’s future economic growth. Reach Advisors is an international firm that combines quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, probing analysis of demographic and market data, and strong strategic grounding. This extensive process has been applied to many of the nation’s leading corporations and businesses, as well as organizations, to assist in reshaping the future of cities.
There are four clear drivers – and while complex – other communities have successfully addressed them and changed their economic future:
- Business cycle challenges
- Human capital challenge
- Entrepreneurship challenge
- Perception challenge
James Chung gave his first presentation to Wichitans in late 2015. View the first installment here.
Chung returned to Wichita in July 2016 for the next iteration of information. View the presentation below.
Join Chung and WCF on June 11 as we embark on a storytelling journey of the creation, evolution and future of Focus Forward.
