Economics Content Recommendations for Meeting Planners

You're planning a meeting.  How has the recession changed the information that your meeting attendees need?  I answered that question in a webinar for MPI, Meeting Professionals International.  Click hear to watch.  I gave my usual economic outlook presentation, then added some comments specifically for MPI members.  (I customize virtually all of my speeches.)

Some key ideas: 

  • Credit availability is vital if your audience consists of business executives or owners. 
  • The housing crisis isn't really actionable outside of housing and its supply chain.  Even though it's key cocktail party chatter, don't go overboard here.
  • Economic contingency planning for the recovery is vital for businesses, non-profits and government agencies.

If you're planning meetings, you should already know this.  MPI is THE source for professional development in this field.
