                      “OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN A CRISIS”
Every cloud has a silver lining and this suggests that every crisis presents opportunities. The
current economic turbulence is no exception. We have seen the downfall of the Iceland
government and the recession of the Japanese and American economies.

Does that mean that businesses should go into hibernation mode? Should businesses find the
safest operating role they can find until the current storm passes? We do not think so.

Real customers continue to face real problems. And as always, innovators who figure out
different ways to solve those problems and make money doing so will have opportunities to
create new growth businesses.

Learn from the experiences of 3 amazing individuals who have successfully navigated the rough
seas of an economic downturn and not only survived but thrived and excelled. They will share
their winning strategies to do so.

Join us for an evening of exciting business success stories, case studies and networking.
