SCWCC Business Lunch ONLINE
Program Topic: Building Community: Industry trends and your business strategy
In a time where communities need all the support they can get to take care of business, information about our population and economic forecasts is critical. Elizabeth Garner, the Demographer for the State of Colorado and an economist, will give us tools to identify trends that are related to product and service needs - especially trends we see coming out of the pandemic. In addition to population growth, migration, diversity, and generational effects, she will talk about the latest trends in industries and how the information will influence the effectiveness of your business strategy.
You will come away with knowledge and insight to help you think about your businesses' comparative advantage and prepare you for the challenges ahead.
