Linda Nazareth is an economist, a futurist, and a respected authority on the future of work.  As a newspaper columnist and an author, she knows how to frame things in ways that both educate and entertain and as the Senior Fellow for Economics and Population Change at think-tank the Macdonald Laurier Institute she knows what she is talking about.  

Linda’s career has taken some non-traditional turns for someone in her field. Her first jobs were as a government economist where she specialized in labor market planning, which was followed by a stint at a major financial institution where she spent years as a Senior Economist. Wanting to change things up while she could, she lobbied to have a job created for her on Business News Network (BNN, Canada’s answer to CNBC) while it was a start-up and spent a decade on-air as their in-house economist.

During her time on BNN, Linda started writing books and giving keynote presentations and eventually left daily broadcasting to give those passions her full-time attention. Her clients have included everyone from American Express through to The Economist Magazine, and all have benefitted from her ability to take big ideas and distill them into information that they can use for their own strategic plans.  

Linda’s fourth book, Work Is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy draws on the research she has been building for years as well as the insights gained from interacting with audiences across a range of sectors. With it, she is eager to engage people in thinking about what the world might look like when we replace the idea of ‘jobs’ with that of ‘work’ – and why that might not be a bad idea at all.

A frequent media commentator, Linda has been quoted everywhere from the Wall Street Journal to Wired magazine.

“The future of work is uncertain. With wisdom and insight, Linda Nazareth examines the past and present of the labor market in order to help readers prepare for, and succeed in, the workforce of tomorrow.”

Dorie Clark
Adjunct Professor at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and Author, Entrepreneurial You and Stand Out

“Linda Nazareth shares a breadth of information that business leaders need to know in order to make informed decisions. She presents the information in an engaging and informative way leaving the audience with an increased knowledge base and an energized mindset toward the topic. It’s easy to get caught in the narrow focus of your own industry, Linda does a great job of reminding us all to pay attention to the wider world around us and how it impacts our specific industry. Because of her we were able to craft stronger strategic plans that took into account global elements.”
