One of Consumerology's hard-hitting theories places Canadians into three distinct demographic groups: "Runners, Walkers, and Spectators." Some adapt to change swiftly, others slow but steady, and some just watch and see. Applicable to virtually any industry, the Consumerology keynotes help audiences determine how each group affects the economic and consumer trends that drive spending, habits, and industries. Bensimon takes us on a tour of what makes us, as Canadians, tick, what makes us shop, and where we'll be—economically and socially—in the coming years.
