About This Meeting

Deloitte Consulting LLP Chairman and CEO Jim Moffatt, Whirlpool Corporation Executive Vice President of Global Product Organization David Szczupak and Center for Automotive Research Chairman Emeritus and Auto Harvest Chairman Dr. David Cole addressed the Detroit Economic Club on issues surrounding de-globalization on Tuesday, June 10, 2014.

A primary issue is talent and educating the workforce.

Cole said, “Eighty percent of U.S. manufacturers are looking for people that have unique skills. In fact, 60 percent of U.S. manufacturing companies say they have an extreme shortage of skilled workers.”
