Tap into the Power Of Economic Forecasting

Rates-of-change, business cycles, forecasting. What are they and what do they mean for the future of your company? This year’s Emerging Leaders Fall Summit is diving deep into these important topics so you can elevate your knowledge of how business decisions are made, think like a leader, and contribute to high-level conversations.

Patrick Luce, ITR Economist and Economics Professor at the University of Tampa, is breaking it all down. During this interactive program, attendees will sit in on engaging education sessions and break out multiple times for individual projects and hands-on case study groups to work together and apply what was learned.

Here’s what to expect…

  • Understanding of Rates-of-Change: What they are, why they matter, and how they 1) help us make decisions, 2) translate into business cycles, and 3) feed into forecasting models.
  • Understanding of Business Cycles: What they are, how we measure them, and how they can help us understand where we are today and where we are heading tomorrow.
  • Understanding of Forecasting: What it is, what leading indicators are, how to spot changes in the business cycle before they take place, and how to capitalize on those changes and proactively plan for what comes next.
  • Hands-on, small group case study breakouts to mindshare, co-create, and apply the concepts learned.
  • Connections with other like-minded emerging leaders within the industrial supply industry.
  • Fun networking events where you’ll get to know other young professionals on a more personal level

What Is the Fall Summit?

As the “hub” for all three ISA network events, Fall Summit is where SalesWerks, Women in Industry, and Emerging Leaders come together to connect, learn, and collaborate as individual networks… and as a collective. It’s a space for authentic networking, professional growth, and building relationships with channel peers. The education sessions will be motivating. The networking will be energizing. And attendees will leave with actionable take-aways geared toward growth and productivity that will make a difference in your company.
