Bernard Salt's Biography

Bernard Salt is a compelling and entertaining speaker employed to stimulate thought provoking discussion at conferences, seminars and workshops. Bernard Salt is widely regarded as one of Australia's leading social commentators by business, the media and the broader community.

 

He is a high-profile Melbourne-based Partner with the global advisory firm KPMG where he founded the specialist advisory business, KPMG Demographics.

 

Bernard writes two weekly columns for The Australian newspaper that deal with social, generational and broader demographic matters. He is also an adjunct professor at Curtin University Business School and he holds a Master of Arts degree from Monash University.

 

Bernard Salt is one of the most in-demand speakers on the Australian corporate speaking circuit and has been so for more than a decade. He is perhaps best known to the wider community for his penchant for identifying and tagging new tribes and social behaviours such as 'the seachange shift', 'the man drought', 'pumcins' and 'the goats cheese curtain'.

 

Bernard has popularised demographics through his books, columns and media appearances for 25 years. His body of work is encapsulated in six popular best-selling books beginning with The Big Shift published in 2001 through to his most recent work More Decent Obsessions published in 2014.”

 

Bernard has an extraordinary understanding of the detail of Australia demographic and has an understanding of the way in which demographic change shapes consumer markets. He attributes recent trends, and even fashion, to the shifting of the mass market from one stage of the lifecycle to an other. The Age describes his style as ‘part stand-up comedian, part number-crunching economist’.

 

Bernard completes about 120 speaking engagements per year throughout Australia, New Zealand and further afield. Presentations by Bernard involve a pacey and dynamic examination of the generational changes and demographic shifts that are currently shaping the business environment.

 

Bernard Salt is a writer, a speaker, a business advisor and a media commentator.
