Ageing is
inevitable.

Attitude is a
choice.

Addressing ageism. Challenging assumptions. Inspiring change.

I work with executives, managers, teams, and entrepreneurs in marketing, sales, people & culture and change management to stimulate a conversation about ageing and the impact of living longer lives.

If you’re here, chances are you have one of these 3 challenges

01

Age diversity

Understanding and harnessing the over 50s market or workforce without being influenced by outdated stereotypes.

02

Ageism

Overcoming [un]conscious bias and limiting generational labels that inhibit creativity, imagination, and business strategies.

03

Age diversity ideas lacking resources

Developing programs or campaigns that target the over 50s market or workforce.

Start the conversation with your team today.

I provide a new outlook. My work focuses on cultivating curiosity about ageing and the impact of living longer to encourage and support simple actions fuelled by new perspectives. Through my consulting services, workshops, and speaking engagements I encourage clients and audiences to reconsider age stereotypes, our [un]conscious bias, and the assumptions we make about becoming older.

Use the free ‘Insights’ tool below to create awareness of ageist assumptions.

or contact me about hosting a simple lunch ‘n’ learn or breakfast briefing and start the discussion about the significance of living longer.

There are 6.5 million Australians over 50 years old with over $4.5 trillion of Australia’s wealth. Yet 94% of this market dislike the way brands, organisations, and marketers communicate with them.

Australians are increasingly working past the traditional retirement age. This means there are five generations in the workplace. Nevertheless, in 2016–17, 58% of age discrimination complaints received by the Australian Human Rights Commission were related to work.

Catherine and her team have unparalleled knowledge and insight into the seniors market segment and are great to work with. They are completely focused on this subject matter which is generally poorly understood and overlooked. Given the growth in this population in years to come, the expertise and focus of Catherine and her team will only grow in importance.

Catherine was a very strong addition to a panel event held at PM&C on the Generational Divide in the workplace. She brought thought leadership on the role, strengths and little-known challenges of Baby Boomers in today’s workplaces. She added truly unique perspectives to the discussion in a professional and engaging way.

I had the pleasure of working with Catherine for over 7 years. In her role as a mentor with our Master of Management students she has been insightful, caring, and very generous to share her vast knowledge and consulting expertise. Numerous students and business projects benefited greatly from her strategic advice! We have been very lucky to have her on board!
