Bill’s Forbes Articles
The world’s population is now eight billion people, more or less, according to a United Nations estimate. Modern Malthusians wring their hands over population growth, but the historical record tells a different tale: Increasing population usually makes us richer.
Many business leaders struggle to get workers back into the office. Many workers, of course, don’t really want to go there. Providing workers with a benefit—not a threat—can boost productivity.
We asked Bill Conerly to look at one of the major factors limiting the growth of our business. He pulled together data from a wide range of sources, as well as his own extensive business knowledge, to give us an insight into when conditions would improve and how we could be ready to capitalize on better times. He did so in a straight forward, easy to understand manner. A year later it was clear that things had evolved just as he had forecast. Ever since then he’s been my go-to guy on how the economy affects my business.

As a result and together with Bill, we are improving our position within our highly competitive market segment. We understand that navigating this current economy is indeed difficult, however Bill conveys his ideas clearly and concisely both in his customized client reports and in his newsletters. We have found Bill to be easy to work with, straightforward and personally committed to helping our company to be successful.

On multiple occasions we have engaged Dr. Conerly to facilitate, and more importantly, stimulate strategic planning sessions. He artfully brings the complexity of economic consequences to light, and is also is a veteran voice of objectivity. And his ability to inject humor keeps the energy and teamwork a priority!
