Economist | Keynote Speaker | Futurist
Linda Nazareth is an economist, a futurist and a respected authority on the future of work. As a newspaper columnist and an author, she knows how to frame things in ways that both educate and entertain and as the Senior Fellow for Economics and Population Change at think-tank the Macdonald Laurier Institute she knows what she is talking about.
Linda’s career has taken some non-traditional turns for someone in her field. Her first jobs were as a government economist where she specialized in labor market planning, which was followed by a stint at a major financial institution where she spent years as a Senior Economist.
Linda’s Virtual Presentation: Planning for Economic Success in a Post-Pandemic World
It is as if the lights got turned off: the economy was humming one day and then everything changed. We will come out of it, but we will come out of it into a different world, and along the way, we will have to make adjustments. And, as much as everyone is indeed in this together, some organizations will emerge stronger than others. To be one of those resilient organizations will take preparation and planning as well as a willingness to reinvent themselves, perhaps many times over.
The presentation in 4 parts:
- Part I: The Three Stages of Recovery
- Part II: The Trends – Then and Now
- Part III: Resilience
- Part IV: Conclusions/Putting it Together
Her clients have included everyone from American Express through to The Economist Magazine, and all have benefitted from her ability to take big ideas and distill them into information that they can use for their own strategic plans. Linda’s fourth book, Work Is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy draws on the research she has been building for years as well as the insights gained from interacting with audiences across a range of sectors. With it, she is eager to engage people in thinking about what the world might look like when we replace the idea of ‘jobs’ with that of ‘work’ – and why that might not be a bad idea at all.
A frequent media commentator, Linda has been quoted everywhere from the Wall Street Journal to Wired magazine.
