Linda Nazareth is an economist, a futurist, and a respected authority on the future of work. As a newspaper columnist and an author, she knows how to frame things in ways that both educate and entertain, and as the Senior Fellow for Economics and Population Change at think tank the Macdonald Laurier Institute she knows what she is talking about. She is well known for her research on Canadian and global demographics and trends to assist organizations in the post jobs economy to navigate the future.

Linda Nazareth’s career has taken some non-traditional turns for someone in her field. Her first jobs were as a government economist where she specialized in labour market planning, which was followed by a stint at a major financial institution where she spent years as a Senior Economist. Wanting to change things up while she could, she lobbied to have a job created for her on Business News Network (BNN, Canada’s answer to CNBC) while it was a start-up and she spent a decade on-air as their in-house economist.

During Linda Nazareth’s time on BNN, she started writing books and giving keynote presentations and eventually left daily broadcasting to give those passions her full-time attention. Her clients have included everyone from American Express to The Economist Magazine and all have benefitted from her ability to take big ideas and distil them into information that they can use for their own strategic plans. She is a frequent media commentator and has been quoted everywhere from the Wall Street Journal to Wired magazine.

Her book Economorphics: The Trends Turning Today into Tomorrow, actually started as a presentation to companies looking for help in strategic planning. Previous books include The Ever After Effect ‘on waking up from the boom years’ and The Leisure Economy examining the retirement of the baby boomers and the attitudes of ascendant generations X and Y. Linda Nazareth’s fourth book, Work Is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy draws on the research she has been building for years as well as the insights gained from interacting with audiences across a range of sectors. With it, she is eager to engage people in thinking about what the world might look like when we replace the idea of ‘jobs’ with that of ‘work’ – and why that might not be a bad idea at all

work is not a place - our lives and our organizations in the post-jobs economy

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • 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 importantly, how will our lives and organizations change as we navigate the changing realities

    In this much-requested presentation based on her book of the same title, Linda Nazareth casts an economist’s eye on the way the big trends are changing our realities. From looking at the way global change, demographics, and technology are coming together to reshape the work world to examining the challenges for individuals, businesses, and governments, she sketches a world that is both unsettling and exciting. How can you best prepare for a world where work is not a place? Start with Linda’s presentation and feel like you can meet the future head-on.

where we left off: ten trends changing the post-pandemic economy

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Since the beginning of 2020 we have been consumed by COVID-19, and for good reasons. Our health systems, our economy and our lives have been impacted by the pandemic in a way that was projected in very few strategic plans. It is not surprising then that the temptation is to think that once this Black Swan event ends, we can flip the lights back on and have all of our economic problems solved. The reality, however, is somewhat more complicated. Even before anyone heard of Covid-19, our world was being transformed by powerful megatrends, and in its after-math there are other changes afoot. For organizations to grow and prosper in the post-pandemic economy they need to be aware of and ahead of those trends.

leadership in the age of disruption

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • The next decade will be a time of unprecedented transformation, a time when waves of disruption rock the economy and the world that we know. The leadership challenge ahead will be unprecedented: decision-makers will face a never-ending need to think quickly and adapt instantaneously to change while at the same time crafting the best long-term path and inspiring confidence in those around them.

    In this inspiring presentation, economist Linda Nazareth talks about the forces that will re-make the economy in the years ahead and the challenge that they will pose in terms of leadership. Using examples of how companies have coped with previous disruptions she will look both at the lessons from the past as well as how and why leaders must make their own history as they deal with what lies ahead.

economorphics - the economic trends changing today into tomorrow

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • From globalization to urbanization to dealing with demographic change, the world we know is morphing into a different planet with different economic opportunities and challenges. What are the trends taking today into tomorrow, and what are the trends that are resulting from the shift? In ‘Economorphics’, Linda Nazareth talks about the dozens of things she sees happening, and the challenges – and opportunities they present to the economy, the labor market, and the financial markets – and to your industry as well.

the global economy in context

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • 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? How does North America fit into the mix – and how do you plan for your own industry and investments? In this presentation, Linda Nazareth looks at the economic outlook, the opportunities in the face of challenges, and the way that the larger picture will affect your own business interests.

your place in the big world - a kick-off to your strategic planning exercises

resilience in a time of economic disruption

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Bouncing back has always been important but has there ever been a time when businesses got jolted in the way that is true today? Megatrends like climate change and the fourth industrial revolution are rocking our world, and every business has to adjust, and quickly. Throw in some economic and political shocks and you have a world that must change on a dime. Only the resilient will survive.

    In Resilience in a Time of Disruption, economist Linda Nazareth explores the concept of resilience, looking at why it is suddenly one of the most important characteristics for companies and their workers to acquire. How are successful organizations dealing with the accelerated pace of change that is becoming the norm? How should companies plan for a time for the possibility that their well-crafted plans have to be scrapped, again? And how do you develop a workforce that thrives in a time of disruption? It Is a brave new world but with this presentation you will feel that you are ready to deal with whatever it brings.

the side hustle economy: imagining it, managing it and living it

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • The days of one job and one company are rapidly fading. These days, workers can not only expect to hold a multitude of jobs, they can perhaps expect to hold them simultaneously. Jobs are not the only way to make money either though: from renting rooms to running small businesses the world is open for business – for good or bad.

an economist’s view of climate change

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Wildfires, floods, hurricanes – climate change is disturbing planet Earth, and the impacts will extend to the economy. Every industry, from energy to the arts will be impacted. How should organizations put climate change in their strategic plans? What does it all mean for investments, for ESG activation, and the financial markets? What should we be thinking about when it comes to climate change and work? In this thought-provoking presentation, Linda Nazareth casts her economist’s eye on the impact of environmental change on the economy, giving her audiences both food for thought and practical takeaways on how to get ready for a future in flux.

  • Linda is also an experienced and skilled event moderator who can draw on her own expertise to the degree required to help your organization and its leaders tell their own story.


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.
