We know our annual Economic Outlook Luncheon is packed with actionable information – relevant and future-focused – but we also know it’s the speaker who ultimately puts Chamber members in the seats. In keeping with tradition, we have another incredible talent lined-up for this year’s gathering – Rich Karlgaard.

He’s one of those professionals who takes up a ton of word count by simply detailing what he does: Entrepreneur-turned-Forbes magazine publisher and futurist, television commentator, private investor, board director and author. (Rich penned both The Soft Edge: Where Great Companies Find Lasting Success and Team Genius: The New Science of High Performing Organizations.)

He is, in short, one of the most influential figures in the technology, economic and business worlds today; a respected forecaster who offers a unique vantage point on the trends driving the business and investment climates. His timely insights can help your business adapt in an era of technological and political disruption and thrive in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

Join us for lunch as we look to 2019 and beyond – from the business, technology and political trends, Rich sees ahead to what we can expect from Silicon Valley, Washington and the world. Plus, insights from Nathan Kauffman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and the always-anticipated results of our annual Economic Outlook Survey.
