Roger Martin-Fagg is an economist, who combines insight into the financial and policy worlds with management strategy. As such he delivers both an economic outlook, and what organisations should do to prepare.
After studying Economics, Economic History and Geography, Roger worked as an economist with the New Zealand Government. He returned to the UK to work in the air transport industry before teaching strategy and economics. Since then he has worked to help managers bridge the divide between theory and practise, both as a consultant and as a tutor at the Henley Management College.
Roger specialises in making economic activity, trends and indicators understandable to non-economists and cuts through the jargon to reveal what the numbers, market shifts and policy announcements really mean. He also considers the strategy organisations need in order to grow, and how that strategy should evolve, be articulated, and reviewed.
In the Henley BusinessClass on 23.11.2016, Roger will explain how the economy works and what the key indicators of economic activity are, including exchange rate and government budgets. He will demystify the workings of a mixed market economy, and explore the components of the economy and how they interact.
As a consultant Roger has designed and facilitated strategic management programmes for companies including PowerGen, Lloyds Banking Group, Greenalls, EDS, and The Economist. He is also the author of Making Sense of the Economy, a practical explanation of everything from GDP to money supply to interest rates aimed at managers who are not economists.
