The Politics of Everything

Jun 7, 2017

Bernard Salt is widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading social commentators by business, the media, and the broader community. He heads the Business Demographics and founded KPMG Demographics, which developed into a high-profile specialist advisory business.


Bernard writes two weekly columns for The Australian newspaper.  He is an adjunct professor at Curtin University Business School and he holds a Master of Arts degree from Monash University.


For the past decade, Bernard Salt has earned his stripes as one of the most in-demand speakers across corporate Australia. He is perhaps best known to the wider community for his penchant for tagging new tribes and social behaviors such as the ‘Seachange Shift’, the ‘Man Drought’, and the ‘Goats Cheese Curtain’.  He was also responsible for popularizing smashed avocados in late 2016.  


Bernard has popularized demographics through his books, columns and media appearances. His body of work is summarized in six popular best-selling books. He was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia in the 2017 Australia Day honours. In this episode, he digs deep into The Politics of Demography.


In this episode, Bernard will answer the following questions:

  1. Why demographics needs a makeover?
  2. How have we become ‘two Australia’s is one?
  3. Why having mentors is not the best way to get ahead in your career.
