The many faces of millennials

by Sabrina Carcone

There is no doubt that the millennial generation (individuals aged 18 to 34 in 2015) is an important segment. From financial services to CPG to insurance, marketers across industries have their eyes on this lucrative group, projected to encompass 75% of the Canadian workforce by 2028.

Are we doing ourselves and our customers a disservice by paying inordinate attention to what they tell us they want, as opposed to what their behavior tells us?

Overambitious timelines, lack of stakeholder buy-in, and the slow speed to market for massive projects can mire your team in an uphill battle that is difficult to win. That’s why we often suggest a different approach to our clients - pick one thing and make it fantastic.
