I am an expert in, and passionate about, marketing and advertising to 50+ audiences, boomers and seniors. After completing a Masters of Advertising over 10 years ago with a thesis on Ageism in Australia, and a previous career in marketing communications, I launched Evergreen Advertising & Marketing.
I am a confident speaker on marketing to seniors and boomers. Aspects I discuss are insights and trends in healthcare, retirement living, homecare, aged care, travel, financial services and social issues marketing through a 50+ lens.
Special interests include older people’s use of all digital platforms, as well as traditional media.
I can discuss strategies that help communications aimed at older audiences to resonate. These include ageless design and understanding the best motive sequences to consider, as well as the psychographic and physiographic aspects of ageing.
Having previously been the Managing Director of 2 large advertising agencies, McCann Healthcare and Sudler & Hennessey, my business experience includes working with large multinationals and start-ups.
When being interviewed, I strive to bring my topic to life with examples or practical applications, balanced by academic research.
I has spoken at over 100 conferences for industry/business, public and government, written many articles, book chapters and blogs, and appeared in TV interviews.
