Connor Lokar, Senior Forecaster, ITR Economics
The US and global economies are going through turbulent times, with inflation, interest rates, consumer activity, labor shortage, market gyrations, COVID-echoes, war, and simplistic and often contradictory headlines potentially making it difficult to discern what the future will look like. It may seem impossible to effectively plan for a prosperous future given all the noise and misdirection, but our speaker Connor Lokar will provide a data-driven analysis of these trends and more. No emotions or histrionics or political agenda. The trends will combine to show what to expect for key industries and areas of interest to ISEA members.
Attendees will walk away with a clear perspective on:
- Big Picture: ITR’s forecast of the general economy (and specific markets of interest to ISEA members) through the 2025, with analysis of risks to the forecast
- What to expect for commodity prices and inflation in general
- How interest rate trends may change and what that means for businesses
- The consumer’s financial health and why it matters
- What is going on with shortening supply chain trends
- Why industrial demand is likely to outperform in key areas
- What is happening in labor
Take a short break to refill your cup and check in at the office.

Tim Pollard, CEO of OratiumThe products and services offered by ISEA members save lives every single day. They’re designed to reliably protect workers, even in the world’s most dangerous environments. While our products might be engineered to deliver flawlessly, the messaging that many companies use to describe them often fails.
There are three “toxic hallmarks” of most commercial messaging:
- They deliver far too much information for our brains to handle (e.g. PowerPoint overload)
- The message is confusing, filled with technical jargon and lacking a logical narrative
- The focus in typically on the sender and what they’re most proud of
How do you design messaging that is compelling? You need to rethink the architectural structure of your messaging. What does well constructed messaging look like? It needs to be fundamentally brain aligned. Which means it lines up with the way people think and make decisions.
During our session we’ll explain why messaging often goes wrong and then provide attendees with a proven methodology on how to design messaging that achieves the actions they seek. When organizations migrate to this messaging model, they consistently see deeper end-user and channel engagement, improved outcomes, as well as notably happier customers.
Take some time to check emails, make some calls, and freshen up before our evening event.
Our special networking event will be announced soon!
