The UK, Brexit and Malta: A Maltese SWOT Analysis – Susan HayesCulleton


Susan Hayes Culleton is internationally known as the ‘The Positive Economist’, Managing Director of Hayes Culleton Ltd, author of ”The Savvy Guide to Making More Money” and is also successful individual trader, financial trainer and speaker (including Ted Talk).

Susan is working for closely with local and international enterprise and dedicating considerable effort into making export-focused businesses and homegrown hospitality outlets “China Ready”.

Susan earned the title of ‘The Positive Economist’ because she is a breath of fresh air in the world of economics. While not wanting to overlook the suffering that this pandemic has brought about, Susan maintains a belief that it is possible to find many things to be positive about.

Susan hails positivity. She believes it allows for a can-do attitude and enables people to spot opportunities – even during a pandemic – and to get ready for when the tide changes.  She has a unique blend of understanding the economics of how these intangibles flow to the triple bottom line as well as her practical experience of managing people within her own businesses.

Susan has delivered many highly engaging presentations and speaking engagements to business leaders, innovators, technologists, enterprise agencies, policy makers and government on stages all over the world including ESOMAR (Netherlands), Madrid Excelente (Spain), Irish International Business Network (US), Institute of Directors Northern Ireland, Leadenhall (UK), Dublin Web Summit (Ireland) and countless more.

​Susan tailors each presentation to the needs of her audience and is not limited to the topics mentioned below. She likes to engage closely with clients in the event preparation and will be delighted to discuss with you personally at an early stage any preferred topic or theme that interests you.

In my 8-year experience working in The Institute of Banking I have had the pleasure of hearing and working with many of the financial industry’s brightest minds. Susan ranks among the very best speakers I’ve ever encountered. Her presentations are packed with illuminating anecdotes, telling statistics, surprising paradoxes and a refreshing dose of good humour. They are a testament to her Presentation skills. Susan is energetic and captivates the audiences’ attention every time. She is a force of nature with an extraordinary interest in and knowledge of global politics and economics. It’s not surprising why she is involved in so many talk shows and debates with senior politicians. It is my pleasure to give Susan HayesCulleton my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. Susan will deliver the latest, very accurate and valuable information and analysis in an inspiring and entertaining manner.
