I have said it for many years “Select an industry that you are passionate about and make sure that the   industry you choose, has longevity.”  You might ask, “How do you choose an industry in a changing economy?”

Alternative Energy (Wind and Solar), Autonomous Vehicles, VR Technology…… all Urgent Industries!

The key task is to understand market conditions and market drivers. During the past few years, I have witnessed many established companies come and go, in many different industries, especially those industries that have been automated by technology or outmaneuvered by the competition. Your goal is to identify target companies that are rising and in emerging industries.  These industries are investing, growing, adding new jobs, and receiving attention from consumers. Often referred to as Urgent Industries, these are the industries of the future.  The companies that will grow significantly over the next 10-15 years. In this program, Tim will explore:

  • The concept of Urgent Industries and the signs you should watch
  • Provide examples of the top 5 Urgent Industries
  • Provide Real-time perspective to your questions about industries.  (Please make sure you bring a few questions to this session)
