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
The Leisure Economy
For the past three decades, we have been steadily creating an extreme 'time-crunch economy' that has affected jobs, portfolios, businesses and lives. But the 'time-crunch economy' is turning into 'the leisure economy' and it will mean wrenching adjustments for our lives and institutions. Everyone from consumers, investors, businesses, and policy-makers will need to understand the changes afoot.
The Leisure Economy posits profound economic changes in North America due to both the retirement of the baby boomers and the attitudes of ascendant generations X and Y. Looking at trends in demographics, economics and generational change, this book looks at how to stay ahead of the leisure economy and predicts who will be the winners and losers in the seismic shift ahead.
The Ever After Effect: Waking Up From Boom
In The Ever After Effect, popular analyst Linda Nazareth gives us a clear-eyed analysis of the end of the boom, and provides investors with an inside perspective on what happened and why. The perfect companion to personal investment guides, The Ever After Effect will help investors understand the pervious economic cycles that affected their portfolios, and prepared them for what to expect next.

Over the next twenty years, the world as we know it is going to change in innumerable ways: it is like the whole thing is a giant chessboard, except that the pieces are not just getting shifted around a board. Instead, they are flipping through the air, and changing their patterns and colors and landing looking completely different than they did before. All of the economic pieces are morphing into something else. In Economorphics, you are offered a guidebook to these changes and the ways that you can make them work for you. Did you know that we are in the midst of a new wave of mobility, the likes of which we have not seen in a century? Do you know what the demographic window is – or when it will open and shut in your market? There is a growing middle class in much of the developing world – what does that mean to you if you live in the developed one? And what about interest rates – what do the long term trends say for investors? In clear, entertaining prose, Nazareth outlines the biggest trends that will shape the next two decades. You need a strategic plan – whether for your business, your portfolio, your career or your life. The starting point is understanding the Economorphics – so make sure you do, and take control of your future.
Work is not a place
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 Work Is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy, Linda Nazareth casts an economist's eye to the way the big trends are changing what used to be our reliable touchstones and writes an engaging story about our future. From looking at the way global change, demographics and technology are coming together to re-shape the work world, through to examining the challenges for individuals, businesses and governments, she sketches a reality that is both un-settling and exciting.

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?
