…but they may get worse before we get there! These are challenging times and it is hard to know exactly what flashing light deserves your attention.
In this engaging session we will discuss where COVID and the economy are going in both the near term and in the next few years to help you think strategically about your work.
We will offer an economic outlook, and then dig into specific topics. For example, we will unpack what is going on within the real estate market and why it has remained strong despite all the business closures and lingering concerns.
This will be an interactive discussion where you will become engaged in the topics we are covering and invite your questions.
