Jan 27 Business Breakfast: The Trends for 2016 are Obvious; Our Responses are Not

Jan 27 Business Breakfast: The Trends for 2016 are Obvious; Our Responses are Not

Speaker: Robert Gough, PhD
President and CEO, G-Enovation

McLane Middleton Professional Association


What does the 2016 economy hold? Robert A. Gough, Jr., Ph.D. President and CEO of G-enovation, of Lexington, MA, says 2016 will be a critical transition year in the economy, politics, and global turmoil. The global economy, besides buckling under the weight of debt and uncertainty, has too little growth, very little imagination, policy paralysis, capitalism naiveté, and geopolitical instability. This is already the weakest economic recovery in US history, and these forces are not the recipe for improvement. They are a recipe for crisis. Gough says there are answers though – realistic solutions that are doable, predictable in impact, and exciting. But they won’t be easy or quick. Learn more about the solutions at the North Shore Technology Council monthly Business Breakfast – Wednesday, January 27, 2016, 7:00-9:00 AM (7:00 AM networking and continental breakfast; 7:45 AM program begins).
