Recent & Upcoming Presentations

Since 1995, Robert Fry has given more than 900 speeches on the economic outlook to senior management, business teams, customers, and trade associations.  Almost every company and trade association that Robert has spoken to has invited him back for one or more repeat engagements.  (See list below.)  


A typical speech on the economic outlook lasts 45 minutes, plus 15 minutes of Q&A.  It covers the broad global economy, with emphasis on markets of particular interest to the audience.  Topics covered include GDP, industrial production, vehicle sales, housing starts, oil prices, inflation, and interest rates.
