I hope you and your families had an enjoyable holiday season.

As we close the book on what most business owners see as a successful 2017, many are asking what can we expect in 2018.  Though the political divisions seem as wide as ever and there is no shortage of geopolitical tensions, I find that there remains a strong sense of enthusiasm among business owners in the region.  Over the last few years, I have witnessed a tremendous spirit of entrepreneurship with remarkable advancements in technology and new ways in delivering solutions to the customer.  I see no signs of this entrepreneurial spirit waning.  In addition, the new tax reform act will provide a benefit for most all businesses, which should help continue big investments to continue this expansion.

It is a given that companies must continue to innovate and continuously seek out ways to provide customer value.   But the most significant challenge for business owners, and the one item that will provide the greatest return, is the attraction and retention of top talent.  I see no signs on the horizon that seems to make us believe that this challenge will get easier any time soon.  For the companies who can be successful with this challenge, 2018 and the years beyond, should be quite promising.

I wish everyone a prosperous and healthy 2018!
