Trend Briefing: Engaging Your Customer


Consumers and customers have unlimited choice. In a world of perfect information and continuous partial attention, brands are continuously forgotten and undiscovered. The challenges in this world of consumer disinterest are to be remembered and to keep up with a new global standard of innovation.


Join us for a session with Constantine Frantzeskos, CEO, PENSO, to look at the trends affecting consumers which will impact your business over the next decade.


We will look at:

  • The New Visual Consumer - How to engage with the digital-first generation
  • Total Retail - How every touchpoint is a retail shopfront
  • Experience Economy - How the experience economy is overtaking the physical one
  • Time and Place - Time as currency

About The Aussie Club


The Aussie Club, has established itself as the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier Australian/American business network and forum for senior executives.

The Aussie Club is a partnership of The Australian American Chamber of Commerce and the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts group.

The Patron of The Aussie Club is the Hon. Chris Oldfield, Australian Consul-General and Senior Trade & Investment Commissioner.

The Aussie Club introduces Bay Area senior business executives to prominent Australian business and political leaders through a dynamic program of round-table discussions, panel discussions and speaker series. This program provides unique insights into Australia’s business, economic, political and cultural environments and will provide local business leaders with opportunities to develop new networks and synergies.

The Aussie Club strives to be an independent forum where business leaders who are driving change can exchange ideas, opinions, and viewpoints.

Membership in The Aussie Club will offer a unique forum to network with an exclusive group of senior executives not only based here in the Bay Area but also visiting dignitaries and executives from Australia. Our dynamic programs will feature Australian connections, up-and-coming executives and national business leaders.

The Aussie Club is a non-profit, member only organization, and is open to senior business executives with an interest in Australian business and culture.


It is anticipated that membership will fall into two categories: -

1. C-Level executives from medium to large corporations and

2. CEOs & Presidents of small businesses and entrepreneurial entities

We host quarterly events and expect to hold events in both San Francisco and South Bay/Peninsula locations. Some events may be tailored to one or both of the executive groups.
