Georgia H. Foley, CEO of STAFDA
"Alan consistently draws record crowds to his STAFDA workshop. His session is always informative, relatable, entertaining, and accurate! He also writes Quarterly Advisories for us and presents a mid-year webinar to keep our members’ pulse on current and emerging economic trends. Alan is one of STAFDA’s highly valued business partners!"
"Alan, great job yesterday, as always – now that I have that information I will begin my strategic planning for next year…I hate hearing that this incredible wave we have been riding has crested, but I will definitely begin to prepare for the lull before the next surge!"
Kevin J. Lamb, Senior Vice President/Chief Financial Officer of Ideal Industries, Inc.
"For several years now we’ve engaged Alan/ITR to speak annually in person with our board of directors as well as provide quarterly conference call updates to all of our senior management team globally. We continue to find his perspective very relevant and actionable for our near-term and longer range planning. Beyond the very useful macroeconomic picture, Alan has been able to integrate the trending of our business data into pertinent industry indices to help us understand relative performance on a microeconomic basis and what is projected at this level.
This periodic information is an important tool in our planning arsenal at both the corporate and business unit levels and one we’re thankful to have. Alan/ITR do an admirable job of breaking down a complex topic in a way that our team can understand and apply."
Rich Canote, Principal of Canote Group
"Thank you for your wit, charm, and levity in your presentation. I always thought economists were boring, but glad to see I was wrong."
