Shaping success in an uncertain economy

Dana PetersonDana Peterson
Chief economist, The Conference Board

What should owners and business leaders know about the current economic climate and how to enact strategies for long-term success? How can we be strategic in the face of economic uncertainty?

Dana Peterson returns to help shed light on these issues and answer critical questions on the current and future state of the economy. She'll speak to current inflation rates and the talk of recession, and what this means for professions like veterinary medicine. Special attention will be given to workforce issues, small business owners, and labor markets.
