Economic futurist and professional speaker Jeff Thredgold has been helping people understand the tangled maze of the economy and financial markets for over three decades…with a slice of optimism and a touch of humor.
With a unique ability to “cut though the fluff,” he leads his audience on a slightly irreverent, up-to-the-minute “tour” of the economy, financial markets, education, government, and a sneak preview of the future.
He is the only economist in the world to have ever received the international designation of CSP, or Certified Speaking Professional, the highest earned designation in professional speaking.
Jeff has served the past 13 years as economic consultant to $55 billion Zions Bancorporation, which has banks in 10 states. His career also includes 23 years with $100 billion banking giant KeyCorp, where he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Economist.
He is the author of econAmerica, released by major publisher Wiley & Sons. Jeff’s humorous and light style makes a discussion about the economy approachable, interesting, and fun.
