"The presentation today was excellent and the two speakers were impactful. The ITR methodology is a must learn and use for any business. Keeping track of your rates-of-change and monthly moving averages and charting them is an excellent tool for being prepared for whatever comes your way! My first exposure to Alan and ITR was the day after Obama was elected. I can honestly say that they helped save our business during the 2008 [Great Recession]." - Attendee


"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your presentation last week… I’ve seen a number of economists deliver programs in the past, but none of them really connected with the audience like you. From the shaping of your message so that it was understandable and relevant to our members to the delivery in an engaging and entertaining manner, it differentiated you from the others. Feedback from our members was very positive, with some saying best speakers yet!" - Thomas S. Passek, President

"My company booked Connor for an insulation contractors and suppliers conference of 150 people. He made sure he specialized his presentation to pertain to those attending our conference. He presented on ‘Managing in an Uncertain Economy’ –Everyone and I mean EVERYONE in the room was engaged… did I mention it was 9am in the morning! Connor was funny, professional, seamless and was extremely knowledgeable on this topic. I had so many attendees come up to me asking when he could come back! As someone who plans events for a living, having this kind of reaction is what I strive for. We will DEFINITELY be calling Connor to come speak at a future conference!" - Allison Wieland


"Lauren Saidel-Baker recently delivered a presentation to my Women Presidents' Organization at the Yale Club in Manhattan. Lauren was excellent in every respect. Her discussion of economic trends was comprehensive, easy to understand and impactful for the audience of women business owners. Lauren is extremely facile at reading her audience and responding to their needs. Her extensive knowledge and experience in economics was evident as she handled a variety of questions with ease. I highly recommend Lauren Saidel-Baker." - Diane McIlree, Chapter Chair


"Every year, Alan’s presentation is the most highly anticipated of our Industry Summit. His forecasts for the power transmission/motion control market and for the industrial markets our members sell into give our members an accurate and trusted projection they can use in their planning throughout the supply chain. An added bonus is always Alan’s wit and humor as well as his ability to translate complex economic principles into relatable and actionable recommendations." - Ann Arnott, Executive Vice President/CEO


"We again had a record attendance for Brian's presentation. Half of the room has heard him before and came back for more. The other half has indicated the presentation far exceeded their expectations. This is not a boring statistical slideshow. Brian speaks to our region specifically and our 90 minutes always goes too quickly." - Stephanie Hall, CEO
