Inforum Presents a Conversation with GM’s Mary Barra: Mary Barra knows the pulse of the car business. In fact, as the leader of General Motors’ global product development team, it’s her job to get that pulse racing. She leads the design and engineering of GM vehicles worldwide – with the goal of bringing those new cars, trucks and crossovers to market in record time and with the most compelling designs and highest quality possible. As Inforum’s keynote speaker on March 14 at the Detroit Marriott at GM’s Renaissance Center headquarters, Barra will reflect back on her first year at the helm of GM’s product development team, discuss the pipeline of new GM products, and offer some lessons learned along the way of her accomplished GM career. Along with her GM responsibilities and outside board and charitable activities, Barra serves on the board of Inforum Center for Leadership, the education and research arm of Inforum. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The cost is $50 for Inforum members; $65 for nonmembers.
