SPEAKERS

Stephen Koukoulas

Economist

Keynote: Economic ‘State of the Nation’ : Forward thinking and the impact on the manufacturing sector

Wednesday, 27 March, 9.10 – 9.55

Stephen Koukoulas is one of Australia’s leading economic thinkers, past Chief Economist of Citibank, head of global economic research in London for TD and Senior Economic Advisor to the Prime Minister.

Few economists have both the global and local experience of Stephen Koukoulas. His background covers the spectrum of economic insight – from his role as Chief Economist of Citibank, government advisor at the Federal Treasury, head of global research in London at TD and then to Senior Economic Advisor to the Australian Prime Minister.

Stephen’s combination of both public and private sector provides an unparalleled insight into the opportunities and risks of today’s markets. As a speaker Stephen has been called upon to discuss the economy with audiences as diverse as the corporate world to school students – an affirmation of his ability to turn complex economic analysis into terms mere mortals can understand.

Unlike many bank economists, Stephen offers his insights and analysis without fear or favour.

In these uncertain financial times, Stephen combines tailored economic overview and analysis with a level of humour and engagement not usually associated with the economics.
