Introducing Ben Vasiliou as Emcee:

Jobs Australia is proud to introduce the fabulous Ben Vasiliou as Emcee for the Jobs Australia Virtual Youth Forum, 'Today's Youth, Tomorrow's Future'.

Ben was recently announced by Pro Bono Australia as one of the top 25 most influential and inspiring people in Australia’s social economy. Ben is currently the CEO of Youth Projects and serves on various community based boards and is leading the way in prevention and early intervention support for Australia’s most vulnerable people.

Ben is an advocate for young people and people experiencing homelessness, providing a voice for those often left unheard. Ben is a fierce young leader, who uses his lived experience to harness the power of consumer voice to design innovative responses to our most vulnerable communities needs.

Ben is a modern, thoughtful and energetic leader, committed to empowering the next generation to rise up and fight for equality across our community and our economy. Having recently graduated from Stanford University Executive Education Program, Ben is influencing the national conversation on how we drive economic impact through the social economy.

Jobs Australia is so thrilled to welcome Ben as Emcee, for what is going to be an incredible Forum.

SPEAKER PROFILE: Saul Eslake - Economist

Saul Eslake worked as an economist in the Australian financial markets for more than 25 years, including as Chief Economist at McIntosh Securities (a stockbroking firm) in the late 1980s, Chief Economist (International) at National Mutual Funds Management in the early 1990s, as Chief Economist at the Australia & New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) from 1995 to 2009, and as Chief Economist (Australia & New Zealand) for Bank of America Merrill Lynch from 2011 until June 2015. In between these last two positions he was Director of the Productivity Growth program at the then newly-established Grattan Institute, a ‘think tank’.

In July 2015 Saul started up his own economics consultancy business, operating out of Hobart, and in April 2016 took up a part-time position as a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Tasmania.

Saul is a member of the Australian Parliamentary Budget Office’s Advisory Panel; the Australian Taxation Office’s ‘Tax Gap’ Advisory Panel; and is on the Advisory Board of Jamieson Coote Bonds, a Melbourne-based specialist bond investment manager. He also chairs the CSIRO’s Decadal Climate Forecasting Advisory Board.

Saul is a non-executive director of the Macquarie Point Development Corporation, which is responsible for the redevelopment of a large parcel of land adjoining Hobart’s iconic waterfront. He was previously on the Board of Hydro Tasmania, Tasmania’s state-owned electricity generation business, from March 2008 until September 2018.

Saul has a first class honours degree in Economics from the University of Tasmania, and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment from the Securities Institute of Australia. In December 2012 he was awarded an Honorary LLD degree by the University of Tasmania. He has also completed the Senior Executive Program at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business in New York.

SPEAKER PROFILE: Shirley Jackson - Senior Economist

Shirley Jackson is the Senior Economist at Per Capita. Shirley spent most of his working life in warehouses, retail shops, restaurants and being unemployed.

His areas of interest and expertise are young workers, employment, labour market policy, industrial relations, and industry policy.

Shirley has written extensively on a range of issues, with publications in ABC News, The Age, The Guardian, The Conversation, Crikey and a number of other online publications.
