Linda Nazareth is an economist, a futurist, and a respected authority on the future of work. Her latest book is Work Is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy, a provocative look at the past, present and future of work that is sparking conversations about how we can prepare for the changes ahead.

As a speaker, Linda presents to audiences in fields ranging from education to finance to hospitality. The common thread though is her passion for her subject and her ability to make economic trends seem exciting, inviting and understandable to her audience.

My association engaged Ms. Linda Nazareth to provide the keynote address to our annual conference. She delivered a dynamic presentation linking demographics to economic and population changes…the audience was very engaged and impressed with Linda’s mastery of the topic." Philip G. Rahrig, Executive Director, American Galvanizers Association

Best presentation for the entire conference. Fabulous speaker. Makes you think outside of the box.

The speaker knew how to keep the audience interested. I have listened carefully and with great interest to all her ideas. I appreciated the fact that she was a woman presenter as there aren't enough at this conference. The tone of voice, the way she moved on stage was perfect to keep the audience interested. The coverage of every subject was well done and well presented. Feedback from audience members, International Foundation of Employee Benefits Plans Conference

I wanted to thank you for your contribution to the success of last week's Canada Summit…The event was extremely well received, and we have had great feedback from our audience and the broader business community. You have a great gift for summarising big, complex issues succinctly”.  Event Organizer, The Economist Group (The Economist Magazine)

Linda did a great job – she was prepared, engaged, and interesting.  My only comment would be that I wish we could have allocated more time to her (this was our call), as I think she would have held the audience for longer….It was really very nice to meet her and spend some time with her – I would highly recommend her as a speaker. Organizer, Certified Financial Analysts  (CFA) Association meeting 

Our conference was a great success and your presentation was a wonderful way to kick it off.  I think people got a lot of good information and takeaways and several of the other speakers referenced some of the points you made in your remarks.  I really enjoyed working with you, and I hope your Symposium experience was a pleasant one. Organizer, International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists Symposium

Linda is a great speaker and I would have her back again! Organizer, Community Futures, Alberta, Canada 

I wanted to reach out and, first, thank you for the excellent work you did during Friday’s program. I heard from my team, as well as from the client that you did a great job as host and moderator. Second, I want to thank you for your patience last week and throughout the entire process. As we discussed, there was a lot of anxiety about this program and, unfortunately, I believe some of that was put onto your shoulders during the days and hours leading to the live performance. You were professional and understanding throughout the process, thank you for that. From an event organizer dealing with a very high event in the financial sector





Work is not a place: our lives and our organizations in the post-jobs economy

The world is changing and so is the very notion of ‘work’.  For years we have been told that our aging workforce will mean a shortage of workers in many industries. More recently, the narrative has changed to one where robots do everyone’s work and there are not enough jobs to go around. Which view of the future is correct? More important, how will our lives and organizations change as we navigate the changing realities?

In this much-requested presentation based on her book of the same title, Linda Nazareth casts an economist’s eye to the way the big trends are changing our realities. From looking at the way global change, demographics, and technology are coming together to reshape the work world through to examining the challenges for individuals, businesses, and governments, she sketches a world that is both unsettling and exciting.  How can you best prepare for a world where work is not a place? Start with Linda’s presentation and feel like you can meet the future head-on. 

ECONOMORPHICS: the economic trends changing today into tomorrow

From globalization to urbanization to dealing with demographic change, the world we know is morphing into a different planet with different economic opportunities and challenges. What are the trends taking today into tomorrow, and what are the trends that are resulting from the shift? In ‘Economorphics’ , Linda Nazareth talks about the dozens of things she sees happening, and the challenges – and opportunities they present to the economy, the labor market and the financial markets – and to your industry as well.


The global economy in context

Europe, the U.S., oil prices, interest rates, population change, currency markets, the markets and more – what is the big picture and how do you make the right decisions to stay ahead of the curve? And with so much changing, how do you plan for your own industry and investments? In this presentation Linda Nazareth looks at the economic outlook, the opportunities in the face of challenges, and the way that the larger picture will affect your own business interests.

Your place in the big world: a kick-off to your strategic planning excercises

Is your organization looking to the future with an eye to re-thinking strategy? As a kick-off to your strategic planning sessions, let Linda Nazareth give you a big picture view of the world with an eye to where your organization fits with the future. Presentations will be tailored to your organization, incorporating your specific demographic and economic concerns.

Event moderator
