Managing in an Uncertain Economy
June 15, 2021 CDT @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
There is no crystal ball, but forecasting is the next best thing you can do to predict your business’s economic future.
In this presentation, Alan Beaulieu will discuss commodity pricing using the raising price of copper to give context to what’s happening in the market. He will discuss upside pressure and bounce-back pressure; transition to the backside, pricing stabilization and the supply side starting to open and ease up. The message to attendees is don’t over project and make mistakes by letting current commodity pricing rule your planning for 2022. The current rise is pricing is a correction seen many times before and it will stabilize in 2022.
EMDA has partnered with other distribution associations as part of the AEA (Association Education Alliance) to offer a monthly series of ITR reports and Q&A sessions to address economic trends.
EMDA is offering a monthly interview-style presentation series to help your company plan during these unpredictable times.
