Strategy Lead, Mylife MySuper
Carlyn Christian is an MBA candidate at the University of Melbourne, but first attended uni in Canada to complete her undergraduate degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour, and then to extend her knowledge in marketing and market research. Her career has since lead her to take on roles in marketing and strategy with leading Canadian and Australian organisations. These have enabled her to gain experience in strategy research, product development, launching new products, and digital campaigns specifically within the Millennial market. She loves research because it is always exciting and never-ending, and she loves that she can use that research to connect the dots in forming engaging solutions for young people. She has spent a lot of time researching the lives of young people in the hospitality and travel industries, and now in super. Currently, she is working for Catholic Super on a number of youth-focussed initiatives as a Strategy Lead, and enjoys the challenge of engaging young people with the sexiest product imaginable: superannuation.
Outside of work, she is a lover of light-hearted sarcasm, long-distance running, and jazz music. In fact, you can catch her singing at a jazz club or two down in Melbourne, or sitting outside teaching herself to play the guitar.
Have you noticed that many of your friends are not all that interested in superannuation? Maybe they’re too busy or just not motivated enough to do anything about it at the moment – especially when there are so many more fun things to think about.
But as you know, right now is the best time to be thinking about super.
How can we encourage more young people to take an interest and engage in super? How can we get the message across that by acting NOW, life in the future will be so much easier?
Our guest speaker Carlyn Christian is super passionate about this very topic. She has worked in marketing, market research, strategy and product development roles in leading Canadian and Australian organisations – her specialty is launching new products and digital campaigns within the millennial market. Now she is turning her hand to super and focusing on creating engaging solutions for young people. She is currently working for MyLife MySuper on a number of youth-focused initiatives.
We hope you’ll join us at this next and very important Emerging Leaders event. It will be a fun and interactive session where we will:
Encouraging our generation to engage in their super is crucial to the success of the whole industry. Hopefully together we can come up with some ideas and work out a plan. One day our friends will thank us.
