The Evolving Crisis, Part III: The Great Shift

Date: Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Panelists Ashford Chancelor – Dallas Practice Manager and Consulting CFO at vcfo, and James Savage – CEO at Kingsbrae Global, led the third installment of vcfo’s Thought Leadership Series. In this one, titled The Evolving Crisis, Part III – The Great Shift, we took a deeper dive into learning how to build a resilient company in times of crisis.

Signs of an economic boom are everywhere. Stock market valuations are at an all-time high, home prices are surging. Individual investors are making stunning returns in crypto currencies, non-fungible tokens (NFT’s) and meme stocks. Economists are predicting healthy growth for the foreseeable future as supply chain issues are worked out and activity picks up in retail, hospitality and travel industries as people return to their pre-pandemic activities.

What could possibly go wrong? Or how will this end?

In vcfo’s Thought Leadership Series, we have been exploring these questions through the contextual lenses of historical cycles. These unseen historical cycles repeat themselves sequentially and have significant, and sometimes overriding, impact on our businesses, affecting everything from how companies market their products, finance their activities, assemble management teams and position their companies for maximum valuation. In the last ten years, we have entered a new (for us) historical cycle – one which we have never experienced before – and it is important to know how to navigate your company through this increasingly difficult season.

This webinar references the book The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy by William Strauss and Neil Howe, although reading the book is NOT a prerequisite for understanding the content presented.
