As a public speaker, Fishman has addressed a wide range of audiences around the world, including corporate and trade gatherings, large civic gatherings and universities. His presentations combine engaging story telling with a wide ranging knowledge about the world economy, putting into context his audiences’ top concerns and exploring how they relate to big, global economic trends. His talks are lively and stimulating. Question and answer periods are inevitably engaging.
