Aging is the world’s next and biggest emerging market.

The market that every brand wants to attract today is the Millennials, and the temptation to win with them is almost irresistible.
  They’re the largest global generation, but they are not the people with the most money: notably the Baby Boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964. Marketers need to get better at the way they market to this growing segment while at the same time going after the Millennials. The brands, businesses and public policy leaders that figure this out first will realize astonishing growth over the next thirty years.

Based on his talks at TEDx, Oxford University and his recently published book The Book That Gets Better With Age, Tim will share some observations on aging, based on his 40-years of global brand building for clients like P&G, Pepsico, Nissan and Infiniti Motors, GE, Johnson and Johnson, Duracell,
  Kraft, UBS and others.
