Many business owners might have ideas on what the economy will bring in the next few years, but it’s uncertainty that could hold many back from making key decisions, says Alan Beaulieu, president of the Institute for Trend Research (ITR), Boscawen, N.H.
At the 2011 International Auctioneers Conference and Show, Beaulieu plans to present some remedies for that. “We’re going to remove that uncertainty to the best of our abilities and provide some real clear management steps in order to enhance profitability for the next couple of years,” says Beaulieu, who is scheduled as the 2011 keynote speaker for the 62nd annual Conference and Show.
Beaulieu’s presentation will focus on the economy, specifically the effect it might have on Auctioneers in the next two years and what they should do about it.
“It’s going to be really important that management act, where in the past what we’ve done is we’ve hung back and cut,” he says. “Now, we’re going to have to step out and go, and that’s a difficult transition after such a steep recession.”
