Date & Format

  • 2:00 p.m. MT, January 20, 2021
  • 1-Hour Presentation via Zoom Video Communications


The pandemic has created challenges and disruptions – but also opportunities – in business, banking and life in general.

What will be the economic and business trends to watch this next year that may evolve throughout the decade of the ‘20s?

Will it be an uneven economic recovery? What will be the drivers in the new world disorder? What will be the new management mindset in business and banking? Will the accelerated adoption of many technologies and behaviors ranging from videoconferencing, online shopping, remote work and distance learning be the future shock to be discussed in board rooms, with family members and on social media…or is it a fad?

Discussion Topics:

  • Identification of global and domestic risk and opportunities for business and banking.
  • Discussion of many major trends for the ‘20s that will influence business’ and banks’ profitability.
  • Engagement with two of the leading educators of economics and banking, in answering questions for crucial conversations.

GSBC is kicking off 2021 with a very special one-hour Cares program by longtime faculty and world renowned ag expert, Dr. David Kohl as a gift to our alumni, students, supporters and their colleagues.

In addition to the program outlined above, participants will experience a podcast-style conversation between GSBC President Tim Koch and Dr. Kohl when they go “unplugged” on some of the most commonly asked questions pertaining to economics, business, banking and life in general.

GSBC’s virtual learning webinars cover hot topics in banking with brief, informative, expert-led sessions at no cost to your institution.
