She gives expertly and fascinating keynotes about current and past economic and geopolitical issues, specializing in public policy and public finances.

Kitty Ussher is a leading British economist and former Government Minister. She served as Member of Parliament for Burnley from 2005-2010, and held ministerial posts in the Department for Work and Pensions, and in the Treasury as Economic Secretary to the Treasury during the early phases of the global financial crisis.

Kitty Ussher has 25 years’ experience at the forefront of UK economic policy. An economist, Kitty worked with the Chancellor during Global Financial Crisis and was an MP and a minister in the last Labour government.
