The Millennial Workforce

Creating culture, purpose and impact

Generations Y and Z will soon comprise more than half of the workforce and so understanding their preferred way of work is essential for effective engagement. In this session Ashley will give an overview of creating an engaging culture for a multigenerational workforce.

Engaging With Consumers In An Online World

Thriving in the screenage and engaging with online communities

In an era of message-saturation, the challenge for organisations is to deliver quality content that will get cut-through. In this session, Ashley Fell, who leads the communications strategy at McCrindle, will share the latest research findings into media consumption, emerging technologies and the key influences on decision-making. She will define the elements of effective communication, means to maximise retention, and the trends in online communities.

Generation Z Customers: Understanding These Global Consumers

Connecting, motivating and engaging the emerging generations

In this session based on the latest McCrindle generational and consumer research, Ashley will share an overview of Generation Z, what defines them, why they are the key brand influencers, and how to best engage with them. This session will deliver a demographic, economic and social snapshot of the under 25’s and give insights into how to effectively connect with these ever-changing consumers.

Gen Z Defined

The 5 key factors of this global generation

There are 4.6 million reasons to engage Generation Z, the students of today and university graduates, employees and consumers of tomorrow. They are truly the 21st century generation, with the whole of their formative years lived in this century. They are mobile, digital, global, visual and social. Their lives are postlifestage, their learning is post-linear and their careers post-structural. In this session Ashley will outline how to best engage with the most formally educated, technologically literate and materially endowed generation in history.

The New World Of Work

Understanding the emerging workforce, adapting to the new workplace

Over the last couple of years the world of work has undergone a massive transformation. From portfolio careers to teleworking, from the gig-economy to the growth of the start-up culture. How, where and why we work has significantly changed. This session looks at how to recruit, retain, manage and train top talent, and how to create a workplace culture and engage a diverse workforce to bring about greater productivity and engagement.

The Power Of Storytelling In A Digital Era

How to connect & communicate in changing times

In an era of message saturation and digital disruption, it can be difficult to cut through the noise, capture attention, and make our voice heard. In this session, Ashley will highlight how to communicate important information in visual ways, and how to effectively transform your data into a story.
