Those who want to get the latest update on one of the hottest companies in the nation shouldn't miss the Good Morning Livingston breakfast on Tuesday.
Reservations are still being accepted for the event, which will feature Grady Burnett, head of online sales and operations for Google's Ann Arbor branch, as the keynote speaker. The popular breakfast event is sponsored by the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce.
Pat Convery, chamber president, said Google's presence in Washtenaw County will affect Livingston County. She said existing residents might be interested in working at Google's Ann Arbor location, and those who move to Michigan for jobs at the Google offices might purchase a home in Livingston County.
Convery said residents are "interested in the success of this company and the innovation it's brought."
She figured those who attend the breakfast want to learn how Michigan can be more of a part of the company's success.
Burnett's talk will focus on Google's plans for its new location — hiring and recruitment, a description of what the Ann Arbor division will do and a segment on what Google does beyond its role as a search engine.
The monthly breakfast event typically attracts 100-180 people, and has featured politicians, economists and business leaders in the past. Convery said the program — organized in the late 1990s — is a popular networking opportunity.
