Boom On:  Marketing to the Boomer Consumer
Take a tour of the cutting-edge of Boomer, generational life stage and marketing issues with expert Dr. Carol Orsborn.  Carol Orsborn, Ph.D., the author of 21 books, will provide you with the keys to unlocking the full potential of the Boomer demographic.

In this keynote address, special focus is placed on marketing to the ultimate consumer, the Baby Boomer woman.  Don’t just reach the Boomer woman–motivate her.  Dr. Orsborn uses a potent synthesis of adult development theory, ritual studies and motivational marketing to help you tap this demographic goldmine.  Participants master the in’s and out’s of connecting with this challenging but lucrative consumer:  from language and messaging to communications channels and influencers.

Fierce with Age: The Boomer’s Way of Aging

The men and women of the Boomer generation redefined midlife.  Now a vanguard of life stage revolutionaries have broken through the stereotypes of aging to discover that growing old can also mean growing whole.  Dr. Carol Orsborn takes both a futurist and prescriptive look at how this generation is pioneering new ground, which is radically impacting the personal as well as marketing messages that will connect with this dynamic cohort.  In short, through a potent mix of spiritual growth and personal empowerment, Boomers are becoming increasingly unwilling to define success by society’s youth-oriented standards.  Learn how the leading-edge of this generation is increasingly motivated to trade anger, fear and shame for freedom and self-affirmation.
