Impact Presentations Group is where people can turn for the most sophisticated and current marketing information regarding our multi-generational marketplace. Thanks to the miraculous breakthroughs of extended longevity during the previous century, America now has six living generations. Each generation is like a separate culture with values and drivers exclusive to their own cohort. Just as one radio station could never resonate with all six generations, neither will business be able to capture all six segments using one approach.
In terms of values we are more a product of our times than our parents. The way we define ourselves as people belonging to generations is changing at a dizzying pace. Imagine, at the beginning of the previous century, the average length of retirement was 1.2 years, and in most cases the colloquial meaning of retirement was "Waiting to die." Even as recent as the midpoint of the 20th century, we viewed retirement as a winding down period lasting only about a decade. Today there are people who will spend one-third of their lives beyond their retirement. And for many, this period of life will be one of the most active and successful of all.

"Right now, America is changing. The bulk of the marketplace is growing older and living better than ever before. Since 1996, every eight seconds another of the 80 million American baby boomers celebrates their 50th birthday. Our life span has increased roughly 30 years in the previous century, but the longevity revolution has just begun. Unlike any previous demographic or social revolution, this "age wave" will force the redefining and rebuilding of many of our current institutions, structures, and relationships. Nearly every industry is beginning to feel the dramatic effects of this demographic shift."
"Knowing the demographics of change is only half the battle. Understanding the psychographics provides us with the critical links to bonding with today's new mature consumer."
