Indue Leadership Forum speaker profile: Bernard Salt, KPMG Partner, Demographer & Social Commentator

Property investors, businesses and governments all turn to one man when it comes to understanding future trends and demographics – Bernard Salt.

Bernard Salt is widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading social commentators in business and the media. A partner at global advisory firm KPMG, Bernard specialises in the business implications of demographic and social change.

Bernard has popularised demographics through his books, columns and media appearances for 25 years. He writes two weekly columns for The Australian newspaper that deal with social, generational and broader demographic matters, and is also a regular contributor to Wish Magazine and Property Australia.

An adjunct professor at Curtin University Business School, his body of work is encapsulated in five popular best-selling books: The Big Shift: Welcome to the Third Australian Culture; The Big Picture; Man Drought: Why are there so many single women in their 30’s?; What is it with Generation Y?; and lastly, Decent Obsessions: Why it’s okay to sweat the small stuff.

At Indue’s Leadership Forum: Disruption & Transformation, Bernard will give a unique perspective of how social, cultural and demographic change might shape the future business environment.
