Speech Topics
Cycles: How We Will Live, Work and Buy
Based on research and original ideas featured in her book of the same title, this innovative presentation explores how age no longer defines who we are, how we live and work, and what products and services we buy. Ms. Dychtwald describes three powerful, converging demographic and psychographic trends that drive this change. Then, she details the "cyclic" approach to life, bringing into sharp focus how age is becoming less a factor in our life choices while lifestage is becoming more important. In conclusion, she demonstrates how our long-held business assumptions and practices, such as age segmentation and brand loyalty are losing their traction in our quickly changing, more ageless marketplace.
