First Business

First Business Economic Forum of Northeast Wisconsin

The A.C. Nielsen Center for Marketing Research, Insight Publications, the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and First Business Bank are pleased to conduct the first annual First Business Economic Survey and Forum.

The First Business Economic Survey of Northeast Wisconsin surveyed over 700 business owners on economic indicators critical for decisions in today’s competitive environment. The corresponding First Business Economic Forum will include a brief presentation of the survey results with a panel discussion to follow. The goal of this event is to educate business executives on the unique economic environment in Northeast Wisconsin and enable informed business decisions for the coming year.

Dr. E. Alan Hartman, Dean; College of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, will present the findings and discuss implications of the 2008 survey. He will identify trends based on what local business owners reported as actual and forecasted: sales revenue, production/operating costs, capital expenditures, profitability, staffing, and wages. He will also cover operating capacity, performance compared to expectations, and business projections.
