First Business Bank

Greater Dane County Business Statistics & Trends Seminar

Join us for a highly anticipated first look at the results of the Business Statistics & Trends Report from First Business Bank in Dane County.

What’s Ahead for 2022?

For the past 19 years, business executives have contributed significant trend data and predictions for: sales revenue, profitability, number of employees, wages, and more. The past two years have included questions about business performance and outlook regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us at Monona Terrace where Nancy Johnshoy, CFA, Senior Vice President – Portfolio Manager & Market Strategist, will present national and regional economic data showing what business leaders are saying about 2021 performance and 2022 predictions — and compare those numbers to years past.

A panel discussion will follow with local business leaders focused on the survey results and the Dane County economy. Seating is limited, so please register now to reserve your spot. Please invite other executives at your company to register to attend with you. We look forward to seeing you there.

Registration is now closed for this event.
