Revenue Planning for an Uncertain Future - 13 Years to Live or Die.

The U.S. and world economy is as unpredictable as ever. How is a business owner supposed to plan ahead in the light of such uncertainty? Does planning more than a few months out even make sense anymore? Is strategic planning and accurate revenue planning just an exercise in futility?

Charles’s talk begins with an eye-opening and sobering economic forecast through 2030, based on multiple indicators and the work of two renowned economists, Brian and Alan Beaulieu. Charles will relay some of Beaulieu’s advice for prospering in an age of decline. Charles then dives into the world of revenue planning to outline for us a new process that replaces the traditional sales and marketing plan to give business owners a clearer model for developing the right revenue engine whatever the economic situation.
