2023 presents unprecedented challenges, including potentially continuing supply chain issues and the aftermath of a lockdown in China accentuated by the additional shortages related to the Ukraine conflict.  
U.S. inflationary pressures, rising interest rates & gas prices, and a tightening labor market compound these challenges.    

Our Charter Members & their companies do not want to be stuck in a “here and now” mindset and be focused merely on trying to save 2022.  They want to look beyond their present challenges to see how 2023 can become a strong growth year.

Hear from four business leaders inspired by a growth mindset about their forecasts and how they are instituting flexible plans and agile leadership to position for growth in 2023. Also, learn about capital markets and investor expectations.
