Each year the Northern Trust Economic Trends Breakfast, presented by BizTimes Media, features a speaker lineup of industry leaders to talk about what lies ahead for the economy in the new year.

For 2017, one of the biggest factors will be the new Donald Trump presidential administration. A business executive and a political outsider, Trump will bring a unique perspective to Washington and has promised pro-business polices to boost the U.S. economy.

The speakers at the 16th annual Northern Trust Economic Trends Breakfast will talk about the impact of the Trump administration and other industry trends to watch for in 2017. The speakers will include:

Cynthia LaConte, Dohmen Chief Executive Officer

The Economic Trends Breakfast will be held on Thursday, Jan. 26, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Italian Conference Center, 631 E. Chicago St., Milwaukee. Click here to register.
