As specialists in all things Third Age
we help pave the way to a more age-inclusive world.
A world that creates opportunities for all
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
It’s a mystery to us that at a time when the global population is getting older, creating both a vacuum for the next generation of manpower, and unprecedented demand for products and services catering to this ageing population, there remains little or no interest in including or communicating with the very generation that can help
with these problems.
Which is why we are on a mission to partner with forward-thinking organisations to help capitalise on the value and experience that older workers bring to the workforce.
Whilst also radically redefining the way we see, connect with and market to this generation.
LET THE NUMBERS DO THE TALKING
As people live longer and birth rates decline, one third of the global population will be Third Age by 2050 (1)
And 3 out of 4 people of the Third Age want to continue working after retirement (2)
Yet a quarter of them, in the UK for example, feel that they are being forced to retire before they want to (3)
And 68% of the over 55 YO's believe that the current jobs market is closed to them (4)
Even so, they are wealthy. 80% of the UK's wealth is held by people of the Third Age (5)
It's estimated that by 2050 the Third Age will spend a whopping $8.6 trillion PA globally (6)
So why then is only 5% of the global marketing budget targeted at the over 55's? (7)

HOW WE CAN HELP
We provide practical
solutions that will foster a more age-inclusive world
Although closely related, there are two sides to the A3A Practice. Twins you might say.
On the one hand we offer Consulting which focuses on culture, systems and age management
in the workplace.
On the other, we can provide marketing services from deep dive insight generation through to creative ideas tailored solely to and for the Third Age.
Regardless of the specialism, both ladder up to our overriding principle - creating a more age inclusive world
with opportunities for all.

MARKETING TO THE THIRD AGE
The truth is, the aspirations, needs and wants of the Third Age are every bit as varied, complex and colourful as any Millennial or Gen Z consumer. They’re just different. And it’s these differences that we have a profound and deep understanding of. Knowledge, when combined with our strategic, technological and creative muscle, can help our clients deliver human centred ideas of a quality rarely experienced before
by this generation.

Besides research and analysis, the A3A Lab provides a curated space in which Third Agers can converse with us and their peers. This lets them do the talking .

"Talking 'bout my Generation"
TODAY THE BOOMERS
TOMORROW GEN X
The latest generation to occupy the Third Age mantle are those born between 1944 and 1964 - The Boomers. A generation that turned their collective backs on conformity, rejecting and redefining the rules that governed fashion, music, sex and freedom. Overseeing a period of extraordinary growth, the Boomers could aspire to be anything that they wanted to be. A belief and an attitude that ensured that they would be quite unlike any other Third Age that came before.
Which begs the question, as Generation X approaches the Third Age, will their aspirations and actions match those of the Boomers, or are we set to witness yet another seismic shift in what defines the Third Age?
