Unlock the Future of Your Business

HIGHBEAM provides leaders with information about the anticipated economic forecast and to answer the question, “How can I best care for my employees in this year?”


Are you concerned about the economic forecast and what it means for your employees?

HIGHBEAM gives leaders the chance to hear a keynote speaker discuss their economic forecast and discuss it openly with other leaders. We hope to inspire the development of creative strategies for maintaining a culture of value and health within our own companies.

What to Expect

In January each year, we host a socioeconomic forecast breakfast for our community. This event gives high-caliber leaders a chance to listen to experts deliver the economic forecast and a panel of local leaders discussing the impact of the economy on their businesses and people. The panel includes leaders in the following business sectors: Banking, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Construction & Development, and Non-Profits. Time permitting, we will take audience questions.

You are invited to join the discussion:

  • The forecasted economic outlook for 2024
  • The impact this will have on our employees
  • Ways to maintain a healthy company culture this year
