Dane Buy Local hosts first-ever local leadership conference

MADISON, Wis. — Dane Buy Local hosted its first-ever local leadership conference on Tuesday in an effort to meet with businesses to evaluate practices and continue to grow.

Attendees were able to hear from local leaders about their methods for success and ways to address staffing challenges like worker retention and reliability.

“Today is kind of an answer for us to some questions a lot of us have been having coming out of the pandemic: moving forward with their growth, trying to get them connected and collaborating with new ideas but also focusing on what their true values are,” Meghan Stern from Dane Buy Local said.
