FARMINGTON HILLS , MICHIGAN , U.S., November 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Detroit chapter of TiE, largest non-profit entrepreneurial organization, announced Lt. Governor Brian Calley as the grand keynote speaker for TiECon Detroit 2017 “Ignite2Disrupt : The World of Digital Connectivity”, Michigan’s Largest Conference to be held November 09-10, 2017 at Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, Detroit, Michigan. The announcement was made today by TiE Detroit President, Tel Ganesan.

”Lt. Gov. Calley is a pragmatic and inclusive solutionist with a long-range vision. He worked in partnership with Gov. Rick Snyder and played an integral role in Michigan’s comeback. We are honored and privileged to have Lt. Governor Brian Calley engage the entrepreneurial community at the TiECon Detroit.”, said Tel Ganesan, President TiE Detroit.

Continually referenced for redefining the role of lieutenant governor in Michigan, Calley’s hands-on approach helped guide two historic tax reforms through the Legislature that have expanded economic opportunity and served as a catalyst for private-sector job growth.

Calley is a tireless advocate for inclusion in Michigan, working to ensure some of our most vulnerable citizens can live independent and self-determined lives. Calley chaired the Michigan Mental Health and Wellness Commission, Prescription Drug and Opioid Task Force, Special Education Reform Task Force, and leads the Mental Health Diversion Council. He is committed to developing and implementing strategies to improve outcomes for all students in Michigan, as well as people with mental illnesses, developmental disabilities and addiction issues. Calley also chaired the Child Lead Poisoning Elimination Board, creating a roadmap for addressing and preventing lead exposure in Michigan.

As lieutenant governor, he led the charge to increase access to autism services and to promote and expand inclusion in schools and communities for people with developmental differences. To ensure all Michiganders have the opportunity to succeed, Calley is raising awareness of the value of hiring Michiganders with disabilities. Through the MI Hidden Talent initiative, he is highlighting the extraordinary but often overlooked potential that exists within our workforce and equipping employers with the know-how and resources to successfully tap into the talent of all Michigan citizens.

Calley has been honored as one of Crain’s Detroit Business’ 40 under 40 and has received recognition for his leadership by organizations across the state, including the Small Business Association of Michigan, Special Olympics of Michigan, the Michigan Manufacturers Association and the Mental Health Association. He also has received national recognition from Autism Speaks and the US Junior Chamber, which named him one of the Ten Outstanding Young Americans.
