The Next Five Years with Bernard Salt

Every organisation would value a crystal ball that looks into the future, predicting movements of people, economic trends, industry expectations and deep knowledge of how that information could translate into powerful business decisions. Of course there is no such device, but there is the insight of KPMG Partner Bernard Salt and his team of passionate demographic researchers.

In a Sky News program, The Next Five Years with Bernard Salt, he provides facts about the dynamic, complex and disruptive landscape ahead.

With expert guests, Salt explores and debates the big social and economic headwinds that will impact organisations. Issues include:

  • the affordable housing dilemma
  • the impact of prosperity and immigration on consumer spending
  • whether Australia's Innovation Agenda is really going to deliver the start-up success it needs
  • how the rise of robotics will change organisational strategies, relevance, and the roles and responsibilities of people
  • keeping up with increasing energy needs – are we producing enough power or do we need more reliable sources?
  • AgTech – what is the role of technology in driving growth and sustainable activity in Australia’s agribusiness industry. 

Every episode will be available here on the KPMG website.
