Members of a consulting group that deals with intractable problems globally are conducting a workshop where they brainstorm with McDowell county business owners, councilmen, and the mayor, about how they can move the economy forward.

CEO Jeffrey Sinclair, who is originally from West Virginia, explained that this is the first step to new beginnings in economical development.

“The grassroots must start here, and then we have to help facilitate that and coach and teach so they can find a pathway and take action and move forward with it,” Sinclair explained. 

After this workshop with the leaders, Sinclair will determine what the next step in the process will be.
