Breakfast with Jarrod Kerr Kiwibank Chief Economist
Jarrod Kerr is an accomplished public speaker who somehow makes the concepts of fiscal policies and economic strategies tangible for the non-numerically minded! His presentation today struck a largely upbeat tone.
The first breakfast of 2021 was sponsored by Upskills. The organisation believes in "training that sticks" and, to explain the reasons behind its workplace numeracy training, director Sarah Balfour and programme co-ordinator Loma Rodan quoted some sobering statistics.
GETBA chairperson Brendan Kelly thanked Jarrod for an entertaining and illuminating session. General Manager Ruth White then closed proceedings, reminding attendees of upcoming events.
