Economy / Economics Speakers

Economists will give your audiences crucial insights into local, national and world economies. Many economist speakers have received Ph.D.’s from the world’s best universities and can help your organization navigate the continually shifting financial landscape. Some of the issues economists can address in their speeches include: financial services, banking, economic outlook, labor markets, investing, globalization, the political economy and culture.

One of the most popular topics requested of economists is their take on the economic outlook. Many of our speakers have crafted their own forecasting methods and can share proprietary information with your groups. Audiences that would benefit most from hearing a presentation from an economist range from investment groups and bankers to CEO’s and managers. These are not stuffy economics lectures; our speakers provide dynamic, humorous and engaging presentations. Some economists such as Nouriel Roubini and Joseph Stigliz are featured in national news and are worldwide celebrities in their own right. While others such as Julianne Malveaux, Paul Tiffany, Todd Buchholz and Jeremy Rifkin might not be household names, they are helping shape economic policy around the world. One of our favorite economist speakers is Ian Goldin; based in London, he’s a leading positive global influencer on the topics of globalization and the connections between social, economic and technological changes.

You should plan on budgeting at least $10,000, plus business class travel for an economist to present live at your event. Most economists will have presentations that last about 45-60 minutes. We encourage all of our speakers to engage in a Q&A session after the speech. This will help deepen your audiences understanding of the content… especially important in economics and finance.
