Forecasts for 2021: Impact on ATL & Tech Webinar

December 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:15 am

Is there a fresh recovery coming? In the spring, after unimaginable lows the initial bounce back was far stronger and sooner than expected. Some sectors of the U.S. and other economies have seen complete recoveries to pre-crisis levels of activity. But will it last?

Did you know that 14% of companies across all sectors typically grow both revenues and margins during downturns? This is not just about being in the right sector — it’s driven by a company’s ability to see beyond the acute phase of a crisis and exploit its idiosyncrasies to drive differential growth in new areas. Leaders should not underestimate the importance of measuring, interpreting, and exploiting the dynamics of their own sectors and markets in order to be able to invest and flourish during the recovery and the post-crisis period.

Join us in listening to Thomas J. Cunningham, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist, Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC). Tom was with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta for 30 years and is a specialist in open economy macroeconomic policy and regional analysis. At MAC, he manages an internal team that supports the research and advocacy roles of the economic development and public policy departments. Join us as we hear his recap of the relative strengths and possible weaknesses in our economic outlook.
