Event Description:
The Next Five Years for You and Your Business:
Threats, Challenges and Opportunities
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
Marcel Proust
The economy has slowly been on the rise for the last 8 years, yet cannot continue to grow forever. Baby boomers will soon transition out of the workforce requiring their spending habits to change. While a group of millennials will be ready to settle down, start families and buy homes fueling demands not yet experienced in recent times. In addition, technology, both a disrupter and accelerator of change, will continue to transform consumer buying habits. Then add to that the globalization of the economy and balancing of economic power which will create demands for products and services not yet invented. 
You can never plan for the future by the past. Edmund Burke
  • How relevant is your product, service and business model?
  • What is your frame of reference for making business decisions - the past and present experience or the knowledge of the future?
Historic data may not help in the planning of the future nor can the future be accurately predicted within the current pace of change, but you can plan for the next five years from where you are today, hence this theme of: The Next Five Years for You and Your Business: Threats, Challenges and Opportunities.
These three (2) hour sessions will focus on:
Session 1
Changes Impacting Your Business and the Marketplace:
A big picture view of various changes coming together including the changing marketplace and consumer behaviors and how they will impact you and your business
Session 2
Creating a Competitive Advantage:
Focuses on your core strengths, who you are, who you want to be and how to get there for developing a vision for the future state of you and your business while remaining relevant and ahead of the change.
Session 3
Leadership Perspective:
Examines managing the present and shaping the future of your business, understanding your leadership and management style, and building bench strength
About the Facilitators:
Ravi Kulkarni and Lynn Turner have an in-depth study of various trends both internal and external and their impact on businesses. Their practical coaching experience helps business leaders strategize for the future while addressing daily business challenges. Their key focus has been on business growth and development, leadership transitions/successions, and building the bench-strength of the next generation of up and coming employees. Most importantly they bring their own experience of success and failures in business for coaching C-suite executives with their challenges of managing and leading their businesses within this complex environment.
