Session 5 – Adapting to an Uncharted Marketplace
The business world has already changed dramatically this year. How much of this is permanent? And for those elements which may not be here for the long term, what is their timetable? How do we adapt to re-invigorate our businesses and help our clients get back on to their own paths of success? A panel of business leaders who work in the realms of local, national, and international dynamics share their insights on the future and the best roads to profitability. This session includes presentations by Betsy Gardner Eckbert, President/CEO of the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce and Nick Grounds, President & Executive Director of the British American Chamber of Commerce, and is moderated by Jerry Ross, President of the National Entrepreneur Center.
After this session, attendees will have a better understanding of:

- The latest national and international data and trends
- How businesses have re-invented themselves for survival
- What it will take for companies to Survive and Thrive going forward
