Zenbooks Fireside Chat Series – Economic Outlook and General Guidance

August 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


Zenbooks is fortunate to be hosting the latest Fireside Chat with renowned Economist, Peter Hall, Former Chief Economist of Export Development Canada(EDC), to discuss some of the latest emerging economic issues and share insights/guidance for small business owners.

Peter has been in very high demand recently, as small business owners are handling numerous economic challenges including hyper-inflation, employment issues, currency fluctuations, supply chain challenges and an aging population.

Peter is at the forefront of economic analysis and does quantitative analysis of the facts and figures without prejudice of common or popular opinions. You may not like what he says, but he’ll be honest and candid regardless. That’s the kind of insight we can all use for our business!

Come prepared with questions! Questions give substance to the conversation! That’s what our Fireside Chats are all about!
