The Digital Native Advance: A New DNA for Shoppers

Ken Hughes, Consumer & Shopper Behaviouralist, and CEO, Glacier Consulting, IRELAND

As the Digital Natives (those born in the 1980s) are now entering their 30s, we are set to witness a major shift in global consumer behaviour. What do this generation expect from life, relationships, brands and retailers? What will they demand from a consumption and purchase experience? And most importantly how must we prepare to meet these needs? Hughes, Ireland’s leading retail shopper and consumer behaviouralist, will answer theses questions and more.
