Attention! Baby Boomers, Gen XYZ, Alpha and everyone else — yep, that’s probably you — we have THE episode that just might teach you a thing or two about your generation, your next door neighbour’s generation, AND the next “smashed avocado” to take Australia by storm!
What are we talking about?
Folks, making himself comfortable on the couch today is Mark McCrindle, founder and Principle of McCrindle Research, and an award-winning social researcher, best-selling author, influential thought leader, and, wait for it… a demographer!
This is one topic that made all of us on the show super excited because as a demographer, Mark tracks emerging issues, researches social trends and sets the stage for Australia’s population — which is VERY handy if you want to know where the future’s heading, and why. Plus, he’s also the author of best-selling book, The ABC of XYZ, which opens the “can of worms” on each generation, their values and shares the story of a country centred on “the fair go”.
So, aside from learning the story behind the data, you’re about to hear all about Australia’s people, and our insights into property, retirement and wealth creation!
Oh, and Mark’s brought in his latest infographics and insight and everything — you can get all of them here — so get ready for a knowledge-packed episode! His team’s research into Australians living a successful life is one that you can’t miss as well! Click here to check it out >
