Where do you go to ground your assessments about what will happen in the future when you plan for your business? Who do you listen to…whose interpretations of the future do you accept, and commit to think and act from?
Recently, at the NALP CEO Forum, the enterprise value specialists at Ceibass had a chance to listen to Brian Beaulieu –one of the most accurate forecasters of the economic outlook in the USA.
Brian Beaulieu has been making economic predictions for the Institute for Trend Research (ITR) for over thirty years and is its executive director. He takes the best and most accurate business cycle trend analysis and applies it to practical real-world solutions with extraordinary effect.
Mr. Beaulieu’s opinions have been sought by all of the most prestigious news outlets in North America and around the world, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Times, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Barron’s, USA Today, CNBC TV, FOX Business TV, Knight Ridder News Services, Reuters, CBS Radio, Kera TV, Canadian TV and many others. He regularly contributes columns and opinions to national trade publications.
“Brian is very engaging for an economist. Of the 15+/- trends that ITR tracks, in 2018 their lowest success rate was 97.4%. They cover national, global and in this instance Colorado economic trends,” said Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO. “Their insights are both factual and forward thinking. For example, they love Colorado in large part due to our 12.4% population growth. When you have strong growth like that, the population needs goods and services offered to them. Brian talked about the upcoming decade…very, very bullish. He insists that you must be in debt and investing in your companies & real estate because of the historic low interest rates that we have. Leverage yourself in a smart way.”
As a speaker and a consultant, Brian has provided valuable and practical advice to companies in need of domestic and global perspectives to increase profits. “Wisdom is knowing what interpretations of reality you are going to accept as truth,” added Tom Fochtman. “At Ceibass, we accept Brian’s valuable and practical advice to companies in need of domestic and global perspectives to increase profits through business cycle trend analysis, forecasting, and effective planning.”
