DEMOGRAPHIC SHIFTS, SOCIAL TRENDS, DATA VISUALISATION: RESEARCH YOU CAN SEE
The emerging generations of business leaders are digital, visual, and global in outlook, and they expect information to be presented in compelling ways. While the last few years have introduced big data to business, the challenge is interpreting the data and communicating the trends and insights effectively so that leaders can make strategic decisions. Just as 'a picture tells a thousand words', an infographic presents a large number of data points in an easily accessible visual format. As pioneers in this emerging data visualisation area, and as Australia's leading research visualisation experts, Mark McCrindle and his team are able to interpret the key data and present the summarised insights in innovative and visually accessible ways.
SOCIAL NETWORKING, SOCIAL MEDIA, SOCIAL BUSINESS: EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES, NEW STRATEGIES
Social media skills have become as important as management and finance skills for today's business leaders. Mark's research and this presentation focuses not just on the who and what of social networking but the why and how of the social media business case. By leveraging the power of social validation and utilising the global social communication channels and at the same time avoiding the pitfalls and reputation challenges these new platforms create, organisations can become social business leaders.
NEW CONSUMERS, DIVERSE GENERATIONS, EMERGING SEGMENTS: ENGAGING WITH THE EVER CHANGING CUSTOMER
The ever-changing consumer landscape is revealing new customer segments and showing the decline of some traditional categories. Understanding these emerging customers, the influence of new generations and the use of new technology on today's consumers is essential for today's business leaders. Only by responding to the demands of these fast-moving segments and tracking the emerging consumer cohorts can brands and businesses remain relevant in these fast-moving times.

Mark's speech, and his sessions, were very positively received by those involved. He brought a unique perspective and skill to our agenda, as well as contributing throughout the conference.
Mark is the most dynamic young speaker I have ever heard about youth issues and is the only one that has been able to explain the youth mindset to me! He blitzed older, more experienced speakers off the stage and is able to capture an audience with ease.
