Personal happiness in today’s fast moving economy can be hard to find. But is it possible to apply a recently developed theory for personal happiness to the wider economy?

As Danske Bank chief economist Angela provides analysis, commentary and insights on Northern Irish, UK and global economic trends, in particular those elements of economic performance which impact the Bank's personal and business portfolios. She regularly provides commentary on issues impacting the local economy in regional and national media and also reports on local economic statistics and trends to colleagues in the Danske Bank Group.

Angela is a regular guest speaker at key business conferences and currently represents Danske Bank externally on the NI Audit Office External Panel. She is also a member of the Employer’s Forum at Queen’s University Belfast and sits on the International Advisory Board for the QUB School of Management.
