Climb to recovery for CEOs

As small and midsize businesses emerge from the impacts of pandemic, CEOs find themselves leading the climb toward a new reality. The decisions, investments and priorities of SMB leaders in 2021 will be driven by the need to get closer to their customers. In this session leaders will learn how to identify changing buyer dynamics and align their sales system for success with the latest insights from Vistage Research.

The journey forward

2020 was quite a year. ITR Economics will explore all of the changes that occurred in the economy and break down what they mean to your business in 2021. One thing that will not change, is that successful businesses will have to constantly adapt to a sea of shifting circumstances. ITR will examine consumer, manufacturing, and construction industry trends that drive Vistage member company performance and present a regional perspective to highlight the factors most important to your local economy. More specifically ITR will:

  • Assess economic performance and business demand in 2021 and into 2022.
  • Evaluate the latest regional data, highlighting issues important to your local economy.
  • Look at a system of key leading indicators proven to signal cyclical turns in the economy and vertical markets.
  • Present clear, actionable Management Objectives™ that are right for the coming years as we adapt to the “new reality.”
