Montana senior Senator Max Baucus has kicked off what he is calling the Montana Solutions Job Tour in Billings. That tour is intended to jump start interest in Baucus 6th Economic Development Summit which will be held this September in Butte. Baucus says a keynote speaker at the summit will be ConocoPhillips CEO and Montanan native Ryan Lance. Lance attended Great Falls High and graduated from Montana Tech with a degree in petroleum engineering. Baucus says the conference is free and it has a very simple and clear goal.

Baucus: The goal is to introduce people on a stage to Montana, and help Montanans, Montana business men and women, be exposed to lots of different out of state companies.

Former keynote speakers included philanthropist Warren Buffet, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Disney CEO Bob Iger. Baucus will announce more keynote speakers for this year’s lineup at the various stops of his jobs tour.
