Metropolitan Planning Council Presents Creating a Winning City: The Team, The Town, The Region

Friday, September 22 @ 11:15am – 1:30pm
Hilton Chicago 720 S. Michigan Ave. 60605 Chicago , IL

Please join Metropolitan Planning Council for an inspiring keynote address by Tom Ricketts, Executive Chairman of the Chicago Cubs, on the team’s extraordinary journey and the turnaround lessons that we can apply to Chicago’s pressing problems. The Cubs’ comeback balanced risks with short-term needs and long-term goals. This is a baseball story—one that offers ideas and inspiration for civic leaders and residents to unite and drive economic growth. In Chicago, we are, after all, one team, better together.

Tom will be joined in conversation with Natalie Moore, WBEZ’s South Side Reporter.
