Keynote presentation – Economic and Demographic Disruption

Keynote presentation – Economic and Demographic Disruption

Rob Hall 08 Sep, 2022

Urban economist, Rob Hall has drawn on .id’s Economic Health Check reports to deliver a keynote presentation at the recent LGAQ conference.

Presentation overview:

Making informed decisions has perhaps never been more challenging as we face demographic & economic changes from the impacts of COVID-19.

In this presentation Rob shows how demographic disruption has impacted where we live and economic disruption has the potential to influence where we work. Some of these changes will persist, while others will return to trend. The presentation looks at how councils can act now and make the most of this shift.

The main takeaway of the presentation for local government is that these macro forces and changes play out differently depending on the role and function of the region and the LGA. Now, more than ever, accurate local area information is fundamental to reducing risk and making confident, informed decisions.
