Simon Kuestenmacher, one of the world’s top 10 demographers, is jetting in next month to reveal trends which will shape the City of Moreton Bay.
A central focus is using data to reveal how business can benefit now and, in the future, focusing on exports, innovation, industry advancement, new investments and positioning.
Mr Kuestenmacher will also discuss the impact becoming a city will have on the Moreton Bay population, workforce and economy – and provide strategies to enhance this.
“Demographics are the closest thing we have to a crystal ball,” said the co-founder of The Demographics Group with Bernard Salt.
“At this event will be looking at demographics to reveal and better understand what the future holds for the City of Moreton Bay.
“What are the undisputable facts about the next 10 years? How and where may skills shortages develop? How will the City cope with population growth? What kind of demographic changes are coming your way?
“This type of data and thinking is absolutely crucial for business owners to have in the back of their minds when planning their own business strategies.”
City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery highlighted the importance of this event for decision-makers with an eye on long-term opportunities.
“Understanding key trends affecting our city, economy, and businesses is vital for smart, long-term decisions, and even more so in our drive to prepare for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“I encourage decision-makers, business owners, managers, and anyone with 2032 in their sights to take full advantage of this event and secure their spot now,” Mayor Flannery said.
Mr Kuestenmacher has degrees in geography from universities in Berlin and Melbourne and worked as a business consultant with KPMG.
In 2017, he co-founded The Demographics Group with Bernard Salt, who has previously given major presentations in Moreton Bay.
Mr Kuestenmacher presents to corporate, government and industry groups – ranging from financial services to retail and property - in Australia and overseas.
