Fifth Annual Economic Forecast Summit

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

8:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.

Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey
4650 Lindle Road
Harrisburg, PA 17111


The Fifth Annual Economic Forecast Summit— every company needs to not only understand today's financial picture, but have some type of barometer with which to help forecast what may happen on both the national and international economic fronts. Knowing the trends and probable outcomes helps companies plan for hiring, save for reserves, anticipate new products and services, develop marketing strategies and communicate with customers.

At the same time, executives and business leaders must be prepared—and ensure their teams are engaged, motivated and able—to address two of businesses' most critical issues today: crisis management and innovation.

Because of the importance of these topics to the growth and success of businesses in the Commonwealth, the Pennsylvania Chamber Educational Foundation and the Pennsylvania Bankers Association present a special forum featuring:

  • Top national economist Dr. J.D. Foster, Chief Economist, U.S. Chamber of Commerce will present the national economic perspective and its impact on business.
  • Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Ret.), Authority on Leadership and Crisis Management, and Former Commander of the USS Cole, reveals the vital lessons learned while leading the crew aboard the USS Cole following a devastating terrorist attack. Business leaders will learn the key steps necessary to lead through crisis and maintain the effectiveness of their team or organization—how to enhance success and manage risk in turbulent times through engaged leadership and preparing a team for what's ahead.
  • Our keynote speaker, Michelle Stacy, Corporate Leader on Growth, Innovation & Culture, and Former President, Green Mountain's Keurig Division, describes the results-oriented leadership and forward-thinking strategies she has used to generate substantial growth at some of today's most prestigious consumer brands. She shares her firsthand knowledge of the qualities necessary for effective leadership in evolving work environments, how to create an engaged, innovative and motivated workforce that produces results, and the five strategies that can transform innovation.

This event brings together some of the nation's most respected economic forecasters, crisis management strategists and innovation leaders to provide insights that will help executives understand the details of today's economy and prepare for what is expected in the future. We look forward to seeing you there.
