some of my 2023 speaker topics


Harvard Business Review and New York Times agree play is being taken seriously these days by global businesses. Its benefits include increased productivity, improved brain functionality and stimulated creativity. Author, entrepreneur and international award-winning speaker Katrina McCarter tells why it’s time to redefine the concept of play in life and business and shares how being more playful and adventurous leads to greater happiness and success. Yep, time to crack out the Lego, dance in your undies and cruise the ‘hood on your dragstar.


After a year when her long marriage ended, a relative suicided and a child suffered severe mental health problems, Katrina McCarter found herself with a new challenge almost by accident—having to tackle a famous walk meant only for elite hikers. But the author, speaker and entrepreneur’s six days on the Larapinta Trail transformed her world and business in the most unexpected ways. Katrina shares lessons for teams and individuals about how being in the desert with nothing meant everything, and brought great perspective and new life to everything she does.


Mums are the powerhouse of the Australian economy and they’re responsible for more than 80% of consumer spending. How well do you know them? Drawing on the latest research from Marketing to Mums, highly respected industry expert and best-selling author, Katrina McCarter, will help you navigate through the potential pitfalls of selling your products and services to mums. Katrina offers practical solutions for marketers to differentiate your message to successfully engage with Mums. You’ll gain an important commercial advantage in an increasingly competitive marketplace by developing a deeper understanding of what Australian Mums want from brands.


Your success over the coming decade will be determined by your ability to form deep, meaningful connections with different generations of consumers. What will consumers respond to? How does your business connect with what consumers really want? Future proof your business by understanding how to market your business to attract, engage and build meaningful relationships with customers no matter what their age or stage of life. In this forward thinking workshop, award-winning marketer will deep dive into the key characteristics, behaviours, motivations and communication preferences of each of the six generations – Alpha, Gen Z, Gen Y (Millennials), Gen X, Baby Boomers and Seniors. Drawing on research and her own generational expertise, you’ll learn how to reach the right people, on the right channel, at the right time using the right language. You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of how to deeply connect with each generation of consumer and learn how your business might need to adapt its marketing, both now and in the future.

“Katrina delivered a highlight presentation to almost 500 delegates at our Look Forward Conference in October, educating our audience of optometrists and their teams to better understand Gen Y and Gen Z in order to attract, engage and delight these future eyecare consumers. As always, Katrina’s delivery landed perfectly. She managed to simplify complex ideas through an easy to follow structure, providing practical strategies and advice for implementation now and in the future. This keynote attracted a 5 star rating from attendees and as a result of the interest in this topic, we have scheduled full day generational marketing face to face education sessions for our members with Katrina in 2023.”
