The View from Bangkok- Dave McCaughan

Inspiring Futures

Dave has been an expert in Asian consumer culture for the past 20 years. He was responsible for spearheading the development of McCann-Erickson's regional planning network for McCann and its processes and protocols. For the past five-plus years, he has been consulting and developing his own own businesses- one focused on AI for market research and the other is a small consulting company based in Bangladesh. In the conversation, we were focused on COVID-19 and discussed what we are currently seeing across the world overall, but Dave highlighted some of the specific nuances that are important to understand for the Asian market.This podcast was recorded earlier in the week before Thailand went into broad lockdown.

The Quicksilver Generation Podcast

The pilot episode is an interview with Dave McCaughan, ad industry veteran and founder of Bangkok-based marketing consultancy Bibliosexual, who has done extensive research and is an authority on the generation he refers to as “New Life Builders.”  Dave talks about how today's generation of people 60 and older are breaking stereotypes of those traditionally referred to as "elderly." In Asia, countries are seeing people living longer, enjoying a higher quality of life longer and are creating a new market of consumers with strong spending power and the leisure time to enjoy it.
