Forgive me if you’ve seen me recycle this post, but it’s a good trend overview. It’s summertime, I’m writing a book, and I’m preparing for an upcoming keynote for the American Nursery and Landscape Association in Vail.
A year and a half ago, I was engaged for a New York City publicity event, where, I met with the editors of O (Oprah Magazine), Elle, Family Circle, Parenting, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Working Mother, American Baby, Soap Opera Weekly, Woman’s Day, Glamor, Teen Vogue, Seventeen, Good Housekeeing, Family Circle and about 40 other national trade magazines, in New York City.
My focus, on behalf of a consumer products company, was the presentation of my “10 Trends that Will Rock the Outdoor World.” You can read the list and see the “fun facts” here.
In preparing, I undertook detailed research and analysis of leading lifestyle, demographic, social and cultural trends, to put into perspective what we can expect in terms of active, outdoor living in the future. And while I prepare for next week, it’s certainly proving itself to be a document that is bang on.
