Business Operations in 2023: Reacting to the Current Social and Economic Climate

Presenters: Jeff Harbaugh, Moderator

Matt Gold, Christy Sports LLC

Hans Smith, Armada Skis

The industry, and the world for that matter, is living through a confluence of events that nobody has seen for 100 years. Nobody has ever managed through anything like it. We’ve got unsustainable debt levels and the end of a long term debt cycle, the first negative interest rates in 5,000 years, climate change, an ongoing pandemic, social/political polarization, mistrust of institutions, deglobalization and wealth inequality not seen since the so called “golden age.” It seems unlikely the winter sports industry can fix any of those problems, but we do have to deal with them. Join us for a conversation how the current realities are affecting our businesses and the changes we have been forced to make in both the short and long term.
