Uncertainty is the prevailing challenge that business leaders face today. Top questions facing decisionmakers are: “What is the outlook for the US and global economies going forward?” and “How can I be profitable and make critical strategic decisions in the face of such uncertainty?”

An economic presentation from ITR enables you to cut through the noise. We sift through the often-conflicting mass of economic information, providing business leaders with multiple benefits:

1. An economic presentation from ITR offers a timely snapshot of the economy today and a view to where it is headed over the next several years.

Typical ITR Economics presentations cover topics such as industry and consumer trends, business-to-business activity, interest rates, oil prices, inflation, and more. ITR’s presentations can provide macroeconomic forecasts for the next three years and industry-specific forecasts for the next 12 to 18 months. These include predictions of when business cycle changes will occur.

2. An ITR presentation can help companies and association members determine what the latest economic developments mean for their businesses and their markets.

Knowing what will happen is certainly helpful, but an ITR presentation will provide specific courses of action based on our proven Management Objectives™. These objectives will help audiences capitalize on the latest information to make the right strategic decisions at the right time. Connecting the dots between the macroeconomic inputs and the decisions facing business leaders, an economic presentation from ITR can clarify how the latest data will impact considerations such as resource allocation, capacity planning, inventory management, capital investment, hiring, and borrowing activity.

3. A presentation from ITR can empower the decisionmakers in your business by teaching a methodology.

Using this methodology, they can take advantage of their internal data and gain additional insights that will help their firms outperform the economic environment in the near term. ITR’s presentations teach the audience how to use rate-of-change calculations to identify where they are in the business cycle, which key leading indicators to focus on for critical business decisions, and how to leverage these inputs to help management teams improve the effectiveness of their actions.

There are many benefits to including a presentation from ITR Economics in your company's next strategic planning session or your association's next meeting. Hiring an ITR speaker will also guarantee an entertaining presentation that offers attendees a lot of valuable, actionable insights.
