    Changing the Narrative: New ways to think about Alberta's economy in 2022
    As we enter a new year, a lot has changed -- yet a lot remains the same. COVID is still with us, climate change is even more pressing and global trade remains unsettled. Alberta's economy is transforming, but we need new ways to think about our economy in order to thrive in a permanently uncertain world. What lies ahead? And how will a new narrative help us adjust?
     As Vice President and Chief Economist for ATB Financial, Todd spends much of his time delivering dynamic, clear-eyed talks on topics ranging from the economy and creativity, to adaptability and the future of work. For more than 25 years, he has worked as an economist for organizations including the Canada West Foundation and the Bank of Canada.

    Todd has been recognized as one of Alberta’s most influential people. He’s received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, the University of Alberta's Alumni Honour Award, and an honorary degree from Mount Royal University. He previously taught economics at the University of Calgary and for the Executive Education program at the University of Alberta.

    He is the author of four books. His latest, Spiders in COVID Space: Adapting during and after the pandemic, was released in March 2021. The book captures the inspiring and compelling stories of businesses and not-for-profits that reinvented themselves during the pandemic.

    A strong advocate of the arts and culture, he serves on the boards of Calgary’s Glenbow Museum and the Alberta Ballet. He is also an advisor to the Dean of the Chiu School of Business at Bow Valley College in Calgary.

    Todd is also the host of a podcast titled The Future Of. In each episode, he and a guest explore what the future might look like for work, communities, art and culture, leadership and other compelling topics. Now in its third season, the podcast won a national award in 2021.
