Alex Clay

Culture Hacker, economist and writer, Alexa Clay furnishes her keynotes with fascinating and insightful tales, gleaned from extensive research and travel into misfits and rebels, and the way they conduct their societies and economies. Edgy and thought-provoking, her ideas relate to business with authentic clarity.

As a leftfield anthropologist and economist, looking at the world’s ‘not strictly legal’ economy, Alexa explores groups and themes such as pirates, terrorist organisations and hermits, and the ways in which they function and communicate which inspired her book ‘The Misfit Economy’, published in 2015. Through her Misfit Academy, Alexa teaches how to think like the underworld’s most creative, innovative and forward-thinking individuals and how to apply their lessons to legitimate markets.
