At a time of great economic uncertainty, business leaders need access to timely data and meaningful insights. This is what the 2023 Welch Business Growth Survey delivers.

The 2023 survey is complete and data compiled for the largest annual research project for local business leaders. Join the Ottawa Board of Trade, the Ottawa Business Journal and title sponsor Welch LLP for a morning of networking, survey results and expert commentary on the trends that will impact local businesses in 2023 and beyond.

Here is what to expect.

Abacus Data CEO David Coletto and OBJ editor-in-chief Anne Howland will explore the major findings of the 2023 Welch Business Growth Survey.

Also, Goldy Hyder, one of Canada’s most astute commentators on business and politics, will engage in an interactive discussion with OBOT’s Sueling Ching and Welch LLP’s Chris Meyers. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to quiz Hyder on challenges and opportunities in a post-pandemic economy.
