Bernard Salt is a compelling and entertaining speaker employed by blue-chip companies to stimulate thought provoking discussion at conferences, seminars and workshops.
Bernard has an extraordinary understanding of the detail of Australia demographic. He can talk authoritatively on the demographics of any city, town and region in Australia … including both history and outlook.
Bernard has an understanding of the way in which demographic change shapes consumer markets. He attributes recent trends, and even fashion, to the shifting of the mass market from one stage of the lifecycle to an other. The Age describes his style as ‘part stand-up comedian, part number-crunching economist’. A Queensland journalist described him as ‘quick witted and dynamic as a public speaker; he is articulate and holds an audience exceptionally well’.
In demand as a speaker, Bernard balances an increasing number of engagements with running a national advisory practise out of Melbourne. He holds Bachelor of Education and Master of Arts degrees and is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Bernard completes about 120 speaking engagements per year throughout Australia, New Zealand and further afield. Bookings are usually required 6 weeks in advance.
