Positioning Your Business for Success in Uncertain Economic Times

With the past decade bringing profitability and stability for many, companies have entered 2020 in a strong position. Early indicators, however, have shown cracks in certain parts of the manufacturing and distribution industry. While timing of such a slowdown remains uncertain, one thing is for sure: its inevitability as part of the natural business cycle. The current market sentiment is a good reminder to private businesses to ensure they are well-positioned to weather the next downturn, whenever that occurs.

Join us as we explore the economic, strategic and tactical drivers that your team can leverage to grow your business and improve performance when an economic downturn hits.

This event will be offered on various dates and locations for your convenience.
