“As one of the foremost and respected economists in Ireland, Jim Power is always in great demand with LIA members to speak at our CPD seminars throughout our eight regions. Our national and regional committees meet each year to select the topics and speakers for our CPD schedules and Jim has been consistently chosen as the ‘Economist Roadshow’ speaker for some time now.
Jim distils what can be very complex and technical subject matter to make it very relevant and thought provoking for our nationwide audiences of financial advisers and planners. Thus, his presentations are always practitioner focussed and case study based. This, together with his very personable presenting style and his honest assessment of the national and international economic environment, makes him extremely popular with our members who continue to be captivated by his words of wisdom. He never shirks calling it as he sees it, and instead gives his own view of the world and where he sees the national & international economies (both macro & micro) heading. This results in very stimulating Q&A sessions at the end of the seminars.
Of course, there is one longstanding proviso, that discussions are steered well away from Waterford Hurling, otherwise our members might never get home!! ”
