As we near the close of 2012, CEOs and business owners look to a future clouded with uncertainty on many fronts—most notably the domestic and world economy. While there are no sure roadmaps to guide leaders through what could be shaping-up to be a very challenging 2013, an important upcoming December summit event will seek to provide some answers, including a forecast of what may be looming on the horizon for companies, as well as actionable steps that leaders can take to prepare and protect their organizations.
On Friday, December 14, 2012, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Bob Wiedemer will take the podium to present “Aftershock: How to Shockproof Your Company for 2013 and Beyond” at the BWI Westin.
Regional CEOs and executives are invited to learn Wiedemer’s perspectives on the U.S. and global economy, as well as looming economic threats that may jeopardize the fragile economic recovery.
Wiedemer, who accurately predicted the economic crash of 2008 in his book, America’s Bubble Economy, will draw from topics discussed in his New York Times bestselling book, Aftershock. Wiedemer says, “This event is a great way to learn about the economic principles outlined in Aftershock and how to take maximum advantage of that knowledge to build and protect your business.”
After Bob’s presentation, he’ll join some of the region’s best business minds for an audience-interactive panel discussion, moderated by Bill Clark, founder of Clark Leadership Group. The expert panelists (each representing a different functional area) will offer advice and insight to help CEOs properly position and prepare their companies for the potential coming economic headwinds. The panelists include:
- Carol Coughlin, Founder and CEO, Bottom Line Growth Strategies
- Dave Hartman, President, Hartman Executive Advisors
- Pam Piro, CEO, Unitec
- Anne Sigman, COO, Social Toaster
- John Starling, Founding Partner, Smith Growth Partners
- Rob Weinhold, Principal, Fallston Group
Tickets for this exclusive event are $95 and can be purchased online at www.smithgrowthpartners.com/aftershock. The ticket price includes breakfast and a copy of Aftershock.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Tao Dojo (“The School of the Way”), a free martial arts school dedicated to providing low-income youth with free training, mentoring, and life coaching. For more information, visit www.mentoringandmartialarts.org.
