“The Future Consumer, Gen Z”
will be the topic explored as part of #AAIToolkit on Tues 27th February 2018 , 8.15 - 10 a.m. at Core Media's New Offices, 1 Windmill Lane, Dublin 2 with speakers from both MCCP and Amarach.
MCCP presents : “Meet the Future – Gen Z”; “Are you ready to meet your future consumer and your next team member?”
Gen Z spanning ages of 5-19 year olds, they will become the next generation who will shape culture and how brands act.
Likely to be children of Gen. X, they grew up in times of deep recession so have learned different behaviours, have specific needs from brands and they use media differently.
Meet them to understand them.
Followed by Amarach, “Talking to Gen Z: different methods for a different generation?”
Claire and Sarah from Amarach are excited to bring the combination of their experience and special interests together to explore the life and brand engagement of Gen Z. Along with the usual questions of “what” and “who” they are taking the opportunity to look at “how” we can engage with Gen Z and gain new exciting insights into the best ways for brands to talk to and engage with this new generation of innovators, social activists and consumers.
AAI Toolkit training is open to non members at a nominal fee of €35 and is free to AAI members.
