Bernard Salt is a KPMG Partner based in Melbourne Australia. He has established a reputation as a trend forecaster for business and government.
His first best-selling book The Big Shift (Hardie Grant 2001) predicted a surge in the demand for lifestyle and residential property underpinned by the imminent retirement of the baby boom generation.
His second book, also a best seller, The Big Picture (Hardie Grant 2006) looked at how work, life and relationships are changing in the first decade of the 21st Century.
Bernard has directed and authored a number of global studies for KPMG International including Beyond the Baby Boomers (2007) and The Global Skills Convergence (2008) both of which attracted global media coverage.
Also in 2008 Bernard produced his third book the quirky and immensely popular Man Drought (Hardie Grant) which not only attracted global media attention but it also catapulted new terminology (man drought) into the Australian lexicon.
In 2010 Bernard produced KPMG’s Future Focus report aimed at business and government and which looked at development options for Australia in the 2010s.
Bernard Salt is a best-selling author, a twice-weekly columnist with The Australian newspaper, a regular on the Australian speaking circuit, and a business advisor. He heads a group of consultants within KPMG providing demographic advice to business and government.
Bernard’s views are regularly sought by the business community and by the general media. He appears regularly on radio and television programs including 7:30 Report, Sunrise, Today Tonight, A Current Affair and 60 Minutes.
