Managing in an Uncertain Economy

There is no crystal ball, but forecasting is the next best thing
you can do to predict your business’s economic future.

HOLLYWOOD, FL – GAWDA is excited to announce our monthly interview-style presentation series designed to help our Members plan during these unpredictable times. This six-month series launches on Wednesday, October 14th @ 3pm Eastern.

GAWDA has partnered with other distribution associations as part of the AEA  (Association Education Alliance) to offer a monthly series of ITR reports and Q&A sessions to address economic trends.

This monthly interview-style presentation series is designed to help your company plan during these unpredictable times. Ian Heller, President and COO of Modern Distribution Management,  will host ITR economist and forecasting expert Alex Chausovsky for this dynamic program. During this six-month series, Alex will provide data and analysis on what to expect for the remainder of the year and Q1 2021, covering industry trends, business-to-business activity, trade, inflation, interest rates and more. Using leading indicators, attendees will learn how to identify where they are in the business cycle and which inputs should guide their strategy to make the right decisions at the right time.
