Nicholas ‘Nick’ Griffin, Director of Economic Development, spearheads DTLA’s Downtown Center Business Improvement District’s (DCBID) efforts to attract new businesses and residents to Downtown LA. Prior to the DCBID, Nick spent more than 25 years in business development in the real estate brokerage, media/entertainment and technology industries.
According to Wikipedia, there are more than 1,500 Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in North America and these organizations “are challenging and re-shaping traditional assumptions of public management—its promises and performance—at the most local of government levels.
Join our conversation with Nick Griffin about the growth of downtown LA and the rise of BIDs.
Lunch with a Leader provides students, faculty, and members of the public the opportunity to hear ideas from local, state, and national leaders, share their own ideas, and gain inspiration for effective governance in a more intimate and informal setting.
