Public Speaking

Paul is a data broker specialising in the outlook and future of socio-economic trends. Having spoken at ESRI's International User Conference in July 2013 in San Diego, Paul was invited as a key note speaker to present his perspectives around financial risk management in a rapidly changing world at ESRI HQ in Redlands, California in January 2014.

Paul's keynote topics include:

Demographic futures:
The cocktail of demography shapes our society and brings about changes in consumer patterns. Slicing and dicing population statistics provide insights into not only behavioural economics and sentiments, but our receptiveness to products, channels and formats. Whatever the orientation of your strategy, incorporating future demographic thinking will help you realise the opportunities of tomorrow.

Industry competitiveness:
Economic buoyancy in any market reflects the competitiveness of an economy and the industries which support it. Understanding and assessing skill portfolios provide insights into labour force compositions and distributions identifying gaps, excesses, problems and trends, and the flow on effects these have on: industry competitiveness and output, wages and labour costs, and consumption patterns and behaviours.

Residential housing affordability:
Residential housing presents many challenges as populations expand. In cities this problem is particularly acute and we analyse changing consumer behaviours in the face of rising supply-demand imbalances and the effects of affordability.

Health patterns:
Our work on social infrastructure addresses the binding agents which shape the efficiency of society. Research and analytics around healthcare detail current challenges and likely headwinds in the face of demographic destiny and their associated financial implications.

Public policy:
Questioning current challenges and long standing social, economic and environmental themes, our research provide perspectives to policy from an applied point of view detailing where it is working or could be improved.
