BarnOwl Information Sharing Session with Nicky Weimar – Senior Economist at Nedbank

Economic Review & Outlook 2016

Recently Nicky Weimar, the senior economist of Nedbank very kindly presented her “Economic Review and Outlook 2016” at our “Information Sharing Session” on the 5th of May 2016.

What a brilliant presentation as always, however, I have to say that it was a most sobering experience if not darn right depressing.

Please feel free to download her presentation and click here to see pictures and read the write-up on the event or click on “Watch Video” below to see the full video.

Once again, thank you, Nicky, for your time and most insightful presentation.
