Our presentations are usually between 45 – 75 minutes long, but can be tailored to suit your needs. Plenty of time is allowed for discussion and debate. Infometrics is independent of any vested interests so our economists are able to freely and frankly engage with their audience. They welcome the curly questions and no issue is off limits.

Who will benefit from a presentation?

Our presentations are an opportunity to look beyond the day-to-day factors influencing your organisation and consider the broader economic context in which you operate. Many clients use our presentations as an input into their team or business planning process, or as a useful “heads up” for managers, councillors and other senior staff. Coupling our presentations with a business breakfast or lunch is also a great way to enhance your relationships with your own customers or stakeholders.
