2:45 – 3:45 PM: Recession Proofing Your Business

How does a CEO best manage through a recession cycle and what can be done to recession proof your business? With every cycle being different, we will look at leading and lagging indicators, along with how companies are using BI tools/other technology and outsourcing to help provide solutions. What data should be tracked and measured and how do the last 7-8 recessions play into future modeling?

5:45 – 7:00 PM: Reception

7:00 – 9:00 PM: Dinner and Presentation – Leadership and Communications

Leading as a CEO has changed dramatically through the years. How do we define what leadership really is for those in the room? What takeaways are important for your next level of leaders? How can leaders be more effective communicators for their team and company? Are there differences between pre- and post-COVID leadership styles?

How does a CEO navigate e-commerce, marketplaces, AI, Metaverse and technologies distributors are not even aware of yet?

How do we bridge the generational gap when it comes to technology?
