Distinguished Speaker

Reading the Tea Leaves – Adjust, Adapt, Act: New England’s Construction Market Forecast

With this program, you won’t need a crystal ball to view a change in market trends!

We will peak into the future to see what the next 2-5 years hold for the industry and its key organizations. We will look at the macro drivers impacting the local market and what we can do to get ready for future market changes.

In this session, we will:

  • Look into the future to see what the market holds – growth or decline.
  • Investigate the current and emerging construction trends and forecasts for key markets.
  • See how the emerging talent market is changing how the industry does business.
  • Get insight into the geographic regions projecting the best long-term growth.

Back by popular demand, Cynthia’s approach will keep you informed and entertained, with a little bit of levity. Her presentation is easy to understand and apply to your business strategy!
