Uncertainty and volatility are the prevailing challenges that business leaders confront today. The critical questions facing the business community are “What will be the overall health and vibrancy of the US and global economies going forward?”, and “How can I be profitable and make critical strategic decisions in the face of such economic volatility?”
Sifting through the often conflicting maze of economic information, Lauren Saidel-Baker, Economist at ITR Economics, will provide a timely snapshot of the economy today, where it is headed over the next three years and what it means to your business. ITR Economics forecast accuracy since 1985 is 94.7% at one year out.
The session will provide ITR’s views of what to expect this year and beyond, covering such topics as industry and consumer trends, business to business activity, interest rates, commodity prices, inflation, exchange rates, emerging economies and more.
Lauren will give members a methodology their company can use in the present economic environment. Using rate-of-change calculations, the audience can learn where they are in the business cycle, identify key leading indicators to focus on for critical business decisions, and establish strategic objectives that will enable them to make the right decisions at the right time.
Lauren will also connect the dots between the macroeconomic inputs and the decisions facing business leaders. She will explain how ITR’s economic forecasts will impact factors such as resource allocation, inventory management, capital investment, hiring and borrowing activity.
This free event is exclusively for CEOs and business owners of companies with annual revenues of a minimum of $10M+.
