Neville Norman's distinctive (Professor 'Never Normal') approach to economic forecasting has been rewarded with several 'gongs' and high demand as a speaker. Neville was the only published forecaster to predict rising interest rates through the course of 2009 (Age Economic Survey - acknowledged by Editor Tim Colebatch, 5/7/2010) combined with 'no recession for Australia' and an earlier than expected return to Budget balance. Neville combines these insights with real practical advice for business in presentations that use economics but address business.
