The Second Senior Market Mobile conference speakers list has been announced and it looks like it’s going to be a great event. The conference is aimed at getting mobile marketeers to understand that it’s not just 20 year olds that carry mobile phones.
There is a whole strata of under-served mobile users who are wealthy, growing quickly and have time on their hands and unlike the grumpy fuddy duddy image the senior market is actually quite cool.
The conference will be opened by the coolest octogenarian on the planet: legendary British racing driver Sir Stirling Moss OBE who will be talking about his life, motor racing and technology.
Other speakers include
- Eveline Pupeter-Fellner (Emporia) on growing the market
- Andy Logan (Matob) on lessons that can be learned from speaking to senior users all day, every day
- Chris Millington (Doro) , “Don’t call me a Senior”. Taking technology to the user, the communication style to use.
