Governor Matt Mead's Business Forum started Tuesday and is continuing Wednesday in Cheyenne. Mead says he's committed to creating a better, more diversified business environment in the state.

Mead and the Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation partnered to organize the forum.

Mead expressed his confidence in Wyoming business to those in attendance yesterday.

Mead says that Wyoming taking steps to lead in business starts with education, and training a better workforce.

He also believes that there is plenty Wyoming can do to make sure it stays competitive nationwide and worldwide in commerce. Part of that starts with new ideas.

The speakers at the forum include executives from Wyoming companies as well as Herb Allen, President and CEO of Allen and Company, James Wolfensohn (pictured), former President of the World Bank, Foster Friess, Founder of the Brandywine Fund, Hank McKinnell, former CEO and Chair of Pfizer, Rich Walje, President of Rocky Mountain Power, and John Schopp, Vice President, North Rockies and New Ventures, Encana Oil and Gas.

The conference continues all day Wednesday at Little America in Cheyenne.
