[Webinar Recording]: The Long and Winding Road to Economic Recovery

Much uncertainty lies ahead as communities and regions begin to recover from the economic shock of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Though there is no playbook for this current situation, lessons learned from other long-term recovery efforts can serve as a foundation to plan for the future.

The NADO Research Foundation hosted Erik Pages, founder of EntreWorks Consulting, for a presentation about how communities can recover from economic shocks over the long-term.  Topics highlighted included economic diversification, business assistance, entrepreneurship, talent development, improved infrastructure and amenities, and much more.
