PRLog - April 26, 2011 - FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- Vistage Michigan, a membership-based organization that provides business leaders with business perspectives and innovative strategies, recently hosted its Chief Executive Economic Summit at the Inn at St. Johns in Plymouth.

At the summit, more than 150 Vistage Michigan members in attendance heard about the latest economic projections ahead of others, thus enabling them to position themselves to take the lead in their respective markets. A clear message that attendees left with was that the recession is over and they should expect at least three years of growth ahead.
“Thanks to Brian Beaulieu’s speech, our members are confident that they can plan for the future,” said Robert Holland, CEO and chairman of Vistage Michigan. “As we continue to dig out of the recession, Vistage Michigan will be here to assist our members in making those decisions that could help their companies succeed. Our members have the opportunity to grow over the next three years, we need to help ensure that they have the will to grow.”
During his presentation, Beaulieu discussed a wide range of topics focusing on Michigan’s economic status, including: unemployment rates, housing and commercial real estate market, automotive and export industry, and migration out of Michigan. Additionally, Beaulieu provided advice on how these leaders can grow their business and client and employee base, as well as making smart investment decisions.
