“Mark is able to convey extremely complex economic ideas and concepts in terms which even the most generalist members of an audience can easily comprehend. Economics is littered with highly intelligent academics whose speaking style is dull or opaque. Mark Blyth is a rare exception to this norm - his first rate intellect is married to an exceptionally articulate and charismatic speaking style that grips an audiences attention.” - David Stewart, Global ARC
Noted author and expert on the politics and economics of modern Europe and the USA, Blyth regularly speaks to diverse global audiences including the US Navy, varied financial markets conferences, in house talks to finance firms, as well as literary festivals, and even comedy festivals. In addition to keynote speeches, he is a sought after moderator and live interviewer for notable figures such as Tony Blair, Gerhard Schroeder and most recently, the ex-Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis.
Blyth has previously been a chef, a funk bass player, and a stand-up comedian. Blyth lifts panels with the unique combination of a wry sense of humor and in depth knowledge.
