Peggy Smith, CEO, to Interview World-Renowned Economist Diane Swonk

Peggy Smith, SCRP, SGMS-T, CEO of Worldwide ERC®, will close the 2018 Americas Mobility Conference with an interview of Diane Swonk, Grant Thornton chief economist and managing director.

Swonk, who advised the Council of Economic Advisers for the White House under three presidents, will share insights and trends on the current economic environment, including where the economy is headed, trade issues, regulation, taxes, and the effect of government policy on the markets. Her eye-opening perspective on the global and domestic economy will help attendees plan better for the future and protect against risk.

“We’re entering a workforce environment where on-demand, contingent workers are rising as a talent option and are racing toward becoming a majority, in contrast to traditional workers,” says Smith. 

“This scenario is made even more complex with geopolitical churn, automation and technology shaking up the way companies operate, and the urgent need to continually upskill current and future employees – so we must educate ourselves on this environment. Diane Swonk delivers that insight in a compact and information-rich perspective – the perfect wrap-up to our conversations at the Americas Mobility Conference.”
