Stephen Archer

Business and economic analyst

A consultant to FTSE 100 and multi-national companies in the UK, USA and beyond at CEO level, Stephen is well placed to provide commentary on business, economic and business trends and offer insightful perspectives on the changing nature of the world economy and corporate world. His main areas of expertise are commercial and marketing strategy, leadership and culture for high performance organisations.

Stephen talks in the capacity of an adviser to businesses and from the perspective of a business owner who has set up and sold businesses. He provides an impartial, diverse and highly experienced voice.

He has had extensive radio and TV experience – he has appeared on BBC TV News speaking on recessionary trends - and is often on BBC radio. His views are also regularly quoted in the business and mainstream press.

He provides analysis on global EU and UK business trends, talks about what measures governments should take and what businesses need to do to break free of the economic cycle, restore confidence and maintain competitive strength. He can provide advice for businesses about how to move forward and the measures that are needed – in particular, leadership, innovation and managing the dynamics of the global economy.

In his capacity as a Trustee and Communications Director for Cutty Sark, he led the crisis management of this international icon after the fire of 2007. He also speaks on crisis management and crisis PR, drawing heavily on his experience where he managed the media and communication but managed to keep the positive side of the story in the media spotlight for several months.

Stephen is an entrepreneur, business graduate and chartered director.
