Andrew Trembath, economist, Victorian and Australian Government agencies, July 2020.


“100 slides in 1 hour!! While very comprehensive you do not make everyday people, such as myself, feels clueless, out of depth or bored. You have an amazing ability to project the same energy and intensity from your desk as if you were standing on stage. These qualities make you standout from the rest.”

WEEKLY CHART PACK

Coronavirus Impact Chart Pack


Each weekend since mid-April I’ve been preparing, updating and distributing a weekly Coronavirus Impact Chart Pack to people in Australia and overseas. Running to over 100 pages, the Coronavirus Impact Chart Pack will be updated every Saturday afternoon, Australian time, for as long as it remains topical. It will be accessible to subscribers of the Premium Access package.

If and when Covid-19 ceases to be front and centre of attention (as it is now) – whenever that might be – I will continue to prepare a Weekly Chart Pack, but with a focus on whatever replaces the virus as the issue du jour.
