Coming soon! The MI Business Matters podcast

Starting next week, Michigan Chamber members will have another tool – a podcast – to get quick takes from key influencers on relevant, timely issues affecting our state’s job providers, economy, workforce, and communities.

What is it?

It’s the MI Business Matters podcast. The name came about because the MI Chamber really wanted to reflect the critical role that employers play in our state, in every community and for every Michigander. We’re stronger, together.

With episodes that range from 15-20 minutes in length, MI Business Matters is long enough to get key updates yet short enough to listen in during a quick commute, before logging on for the day or while multitasking.

The inaugural episode airs next week, Tuesday, Jan. 24. New episodes will be available every week or two from there.

 

Why should I listen?

So many reasons. But it boils down to influencers, issues and information.

Each episode, a Michigan Chamber team member will sit down with a special guest (or guests) who are leading policymakers, other movers and shakers and employers like you.

You’ll get in-the-know details on Capitol happenings, emerging trends and key issues that affect how you do business and can grow and succeed. We want to help foster pragmatic problem solving and civility.

And we’ll provide tangible takeaways and resources that can help protect, connect and strengthen Michigan businesses.
