Put another Aussie on the barbie

Matt Barrie is a successful entrepreneur, the founder of Freelancer, and one of Australia’s most incisive economic analysts. Come to The Precinct, Fortitude Valley to be a part of his next event where he will tell you where the Australian economy is heading, and what should be done about it (but surely not human sacrifice).

When it comes to business Matt should know better than most – unlike most economists he has real money on the line. Twelve-time Webby award-winning Freelancer.com is the world’s largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace with over 70 million registered users. Matt is also Chief Executive of Escrow.com, a world leader in secure online payments with over US$6b in transactions secured and Executive Chairman of Loadshift, which is Australia’s largest freight marketplace with over 750 million kilometres of freight posted to date.

His rewards for entrepreneurship are literally too many to list here, but include:

  • 2014 Smart Money named him the most influential person in information technology in Australia
  • 2015 Engineers Australia named him in the Top 100 Most Influential Engineers in Australia
  • 2016 Libertarian Society named him Libertarian of the Year
  • 2018 Macquarie University named him Alumnus of the Year in Entrepreneurship
  • 2019 A Gold Stevie Award as Executive of the Year

The event will be recorded for later broadcast, and you will have a chance to meet and talk to Matt as well.
