MEET OUR SPEAKERS

GEOFF HARRIS

Geoff Harris was a founding partner of Flight Centre and major shareholder in Boost Juice. He concentrates his extensive philanthropic efforts on youth causes and is a leading advocate of impact investment and supporter of social enterprises including STREAT, a prominent Melbourne social enterprise.

“Dollars & Sense is a great chance for corporate Australia to show their support for social enterprise initiatives and to stimulate the debate about ways in which the impact of this sector can continue to develop.“

CRAIG FERGUSON, ANTIPODEAN

Director of Strategy, Craig Ferguson, formerly worked with JP Morgan (1994-2003) as a currency and bond trader, and was head of their cross-market technical analysis group between 1999-2003 when his group was regularly ranked top three in the world. Craig was Head Currency Strategist at ANZ Investment Bank between 2003-05, during which time he was the top ranked currency forecaster in Australia according to the Peter Lee Survey. Since starting Antipodean in 2006, he successfully predicted the collapse in global stock markets and the US housing market during the global financial crisis and the recovery thereafter. More recently, Craig predicted the collapse in oil and iron ore prices, and the peak and then bear markets in ASX resource and bank stocks.
