We are delighted to have secured a unique opportunity to invite you to an executive briefing with one of the world’s most renowned global economists Dr Paul Sheard and author of the Wall Street Journal best seller, the Power of Money.  Dr Paul Sheard was the global chief economist for one of the true powerhouses in the financial markets – S&P Global.  His insights in the lead up to the GFC, and analysis in the years following, is widely regarded as some of the most influential economic commentaries of the time.

Paul has recently released a booked entitled the Power of Money that has hit the Wall St Journal Best Seller list and is highly sought after.  As an added benefit of attending the briefing, we will be providing attendees with a complimentary copy of Paul’s book.  This exclusive address will bring a truly international view on the global economy at a time where we are all wondering where rates, inflation, and the financial markets are going.

In addition, we will be spending some time considering the existential threat that cyber fraud and identity theft is having on the economy and demonstrating one of the key tools available to businesses to help mitigate the risk.  BRYK Group CEO David Brykman will provide important insights on this high-risk issue.
