Bernard Salt AM is widely regarded by business and the broader community as one of Australia’s leading social commentators. He built his corporate career working at the highest level as a partner in a global advisory firm. He writes two weekly columns for The Australian newspaper that officially discuss consumer trends but which often spill into such topics as modern manners, generations and social mores. His smashed-avocado column from last October went global instantly and continues to shape popular culture. Bernard is one of the most in-demand speakers on the corporate speaking circuit. He is known for identifying such social trends as the ‘seachange shift’, the ‘bank of mum & dad’, the ‘man drought’ and that much-favoured hipster-haunt, the ‘goat’s cheese curtain’.
Bernard has popularised social commentary through his books, columns and media appearances for 25 years. His body of work is encapsulated in six popular best-selling books and in a TV series aired on Sky Business earlier this year. Bernard will be leading this cruise, chatting formally and informally, in a range of forums, about the destinations and delivering witty and engaging social observations on Australian culture along the way. Bernard looks forward to chatting with you over dinner.
