Between now and February, I will have the distinct pleasure of speaking to three separate and incredible audiences on a topic that’s very near and dear to me: the needs of an enormous and aging Baby Boomer demographic.

The so-called “silver tsunami” of aging Boomers will affect many things in our country, including health care, social security and much more. My presentations as a Professional Interior Designer and Certified Aging in Place Specialist will focus, naturally, on Boomer needs around the house, how those needs evolve as we age and how to best market to this valuable demographic.

I’ll fill you in on the second and third events as they approach and you can view the full event list here at any time, but for now I’d like to focus on the my first stop: High Point Furniture Market on October 19.

If you’re familiar with High Point, I don’t have to tell you this is HUGE and I’m beyond honored and humbled by this great opportunity. If you’re NOT familiar with High Point, there’s no time like the present to brush up by clicking here. The sheer numbers—2,000+ exhibitors and some 75,000 attendees—are staggering. High Point is THE place to be when it comes to what’s new, hot and “in” in the furniture world.

Beyond the enormity of High Point itself, just one glance at the good company I’m in as a speaker in the Antique & Design Center of High Point Fall 2013 Lecture Series (last year’s video embedded above) is enough to make a girl blush.

If you’re checking out the High Point Furniture Market next month, leave me a comment below and maybe we can connect—I’m so excited to meet many great people at this one-of-a-kind event.
