Tim Harford, the award-winning journalist, TV and radio personality, and author of the acclaimed book The Undercover Economist, has agreed to keynote the Canalys Channels Forum on Thursday 5 February 2009 in Barcelona.
Tim will discuss how buying behaviour changes during a recession. He will focus on how people and businesses are likely to behave in the economic downturn and now is the time to bring in fresh ideas and define a future strategy that works.
Tim Harfords books, The Undercover Economist (2005) and The Logic of Life (2008) have been translated into 30 languages and have sold nearly a million copies worldwide, hitting the bestseller lists not only in the US, UK and Canada but also in countries such as Spain and South Korea.
Tim writes two regular columns in the FT and the FT magazine titled, Undercover Economist and Dear Economist and has fronted the BBC programme Trust Me Im an Economist, which applies economics to everyday events. Tim presents the BBC Radio 4 series More or Less one of the BBCs most downloaded current affairs shows. In 2006, Tim won the Bastiat Prize for economic journalism.
Steve Brazier, Canalys President and CEO commented, We are delighted that Tim has agreed to speak at the Canalys Channels Forum. Tim will also reveal the economic ideas behind everyday experiences and using the latest economic theory to help resellers with problems they may face in 2009.
