Join us for an informative Business Breakfast with Brad Olsen and for the launch of our very first Online Business Expo.
Brad is a Senior Economist at Infometrics and a leading economic commentator across New Zealand who focuses on getting useful information to businesses, decision makers, and the public. At present, he is focused on the economic effects of COVID-19 and the reimagination of the New Zealand economy, as jobs are lost, business practices change, and a “new” normal emerges.
Since joining Infometrics in July 2015 as a part time data analyst while studying at Victoria University of Wellington, Brad has risen to be one of New Zealand’s more prominent (and youngest) economic commentators, regularly featuring across TV, radio, print, and online.
Brad’s role at Infometrics covers all parts of the business. In the regional and sector space, he is responsible for interacting with clients and providing key regional and industry-level economic insights. He is also a part of the forecasting team, analysing the latest trends and looking at how the economy is shifting. He has completed a range of bespoke consulting projects, including public policy costings in the education and healthcare space. Brad’s role includes regularly making presentations across the country to examine current and emerging trends.
Brad’s an active and engaged member of the local community and is currently New Zealand’s youngest Justice of the Peace (JP). He is also a member of the Global Shapers Community Wellington Hub, Wellington City Youth Council, the Citizens Health Council (advising the Capital and Coast DHB), the Asia New Zealand Foundation Leadership Network, the Wellington District Licensing Committee, and volunteers with Take10. In 2016, he was announced as New Zealand’s Queen’s Young Leader and has met with the Queen on three occasions.
Under current Level 2 restrictions we are limiting ticket sales for this event to under 100.
