Six Living Generations

Generation XTo help programme managers to understand their audiences better consider the six living generations who are each a distinct group of people.  They accumulate collective experiences as they age and as a group have many similarities.    

Many a conference, meeting or function will bring together multiple generations and age groups - understanding your audience will enable you to adapt your programme content and format accordingly.  It is important to know how to communicate and market to these different generations
