J. Pat Beaird Industry of the Year Luncheon to honor local industry, small businesses

by BIZ Magazine

The Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce’s annual J. Pat Beaird Industry of the Year Luncheon will honor industry and small businesses that best represent entrepreneurship.

This annual event, sponsored by the J. Pat Beaird Memorial Fund and presented by Regions Bank, allows the chamber to bring nationally recognized speakers to the area and honor outstanding Industry & Small Businesses who demonstrate “Best Practices” of entrepreneurship, such as sound business planning, fiscal responsibility and innovation in operating their business.

This event is scheduled for Sept. 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino, 315 Clyde Fant Parkway, Shreveport.

The 2022 speaker will be Stephen E. Murphy. As a Special Agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Stephen Murphy and his partner, Javier Pena, targeted the world’s first narco-terrorist, Pablo Escobar, and the Medellin Cartel.

Living and working alongside their Colombian National Police counterparts in Medellin, Colombia, as well as with elite U.S. military units, their efforts resulted in the dismantlement of the largest and most violent international drug trafficking organization of its time. This was a first in the field of international narcotics investigations. U.S. and international law enforcement agencies continue to utilize many of the strategies and innovative ideas that were created and implemented by Steve and Javier.
