The Business Climate in Context: Navigating External Issues

Conference Quick Links

Conference Overview

What keeps you up at night? If you are like the vast majority of business owners responding to recent surveys (see here and here), the worries causing those 3 AM wake-ups are external to your business.

There is so much going on in the environment around us that it can feel like a full-time job keeping up with today’s news and the effects on the business community. These external factors — the political, economic, social/cultural, technological, and environmental — all have an impact on you and your business, whether you are just starting up or you are a seasoned entrepreneur. 

You’re a business owner. You’re busy dealing with customers, meeting deadlines, posting on social media, managing employees, and trying to keep on top of changes in your industry. When you actually get a chance to look up to see what’s happening in the outside world, it is enough to make you want to channel your inner ostrich. 

But here’s the truth: being informed about the greater business climate provides a competitive advantage. If you don’t know what’s coming at you from the external business landscape, you don’t know how to respond. This conference is designed to help you examine the issues and consider your responses to the challenges you encounter as a woman business owner. 

This half-day conference will feature keynote presentations by Janice Shade of Milk Money and Jovial King of Urban Moonshine and roundtable discussions with subject matter experts and entrepreneurs who have found solutions to the issues we women business owners face in the changing political, economic, social/cultural, technological, and environmental arenas. 

Don’t channel your inner ostrich. Join us.

Be informed. Be supported. Be bold.
