2017 Passion Point Immersions
Families hit an emotional tipping point in 2016. For the prior past ten years, our study of the core hopes, dreams, aspirations, and anxieties that moms and dads are most focused on have been a model of consistency and stability. But over the last eighteen months, families have been hit with a tsunami of cultural, political, social and environmental forces that have literally turned these Passion Point priorities upside-down. These changes are on a magnitude the likes of which we have ever seen, with implications for Millennial mom and dad marketers that cannot be overstated. Because if your brand is not speaking to these new emotional truths, your brand will not be emotionally relevant, and the $500-billion Millennial family opportunity will move on without you.
The Family Room’s Passion Point immersions are intended to equip ambitious mom, dad and family marketers with a road map for emotional relevance on their brands and new products. Drawn from our 2017 Passion Point update and presented by The Family Room CEO and founder George Carey, these ninety minute sessions will enable your teams to see beyond their category and beyond their brands to the new emotional realities families are most focused on today which are bedrock of their decision making.
Each session includes:
Four macro themes in family’s emotional landscape with relevance for your category and brands.

A concluding opportunity listening session in which participants begin connecting the dots between these trends their brands for transformative innovation and renewed relevance.
