Keynote & Workshop Topics

From the Baby Boomers and Generation X and Generation Y, it is now Generation Z and Generation Alpha that are emerging.  These new generations are global, social, visual and technological.  They are the most connected, educated and sophisticated generations ever.  They are the up-agers, with influence beyond their years.  They are the tweens, the teens, the youth and young adults of our global society.  They are the early adopters, the brand influencers, the social media drivers, the pop-culture leaders.  They comprise nearly 2 billion people globally, and they don’t just represent the future, they’re creating it.  To understand the trends, to respond to the changes, and to be positioned to thrive in these changing times, it is essential to understand these next gens.
