These discussions help set the tone for deeper discussions and specific directions that we should take with our corporate strategy."
"Harry Broadman spoke at our bi-annual US Cotton Summit to a very diverse global audience of over 400 people from 30 countries and wowed them with his impressive knowledge of the world and his insights about how history is shaping so many of the current issues we face. We had very positive reviews in our follow-up survey and I would heartily recommend Harry as a speaker."
"Harry was the keynoter for our 2023 Economic Outlook Forecast provided to 300 business sector leaders. His presentation came at a time of great uncertainty regarding interest rate hikes, inflationary pressures, global recession prospects, and challenging labor availability and attainable housing markets.

I highly recommend him if your leader audience “wants to ride the economy’s waves versus getting crushed by them on the beach.”"
