  • Anticipate and plan for generation-specific objections.

Director of Philanthropy The Nature Conservancy

“Amy Lynch is an engaging, dynamic presenter and expert on generational trends. The information she shares is not only useful, but necessary. Specifically for the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Amy provided strategies for working with donors of different generations. Her real-world examples, action steps and specific language for framing effective donor solicitations made for a compelling session!"

Chairman and President Durham, Jones and Pinegar

“When I heard Amy speak, my first thought was ‘She gets it. She really gets it when it comes to working with other generations.’ We immediately invited her to lead a retreat for our firm.”

Director, Institutional Advancement Association of American Medical Colleges

“Amy’s presentation was a hit! Her thorough preparation process enabled her to strike exactly the right tone for our audience. She is dynamic, and judging by her standing-room-only audience, I expect to have her back again!”

Senior Program Manager The Conference Board of Canada

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Words cannot express how much we enjoyed and valued your presentation. Working with you is always a treat.“

GEN Z Is a Lot Like Their Great-Grands
Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Alas, it’s the Millennials’ turn to feel old. Gen Z (also called GenEdge) is coming of age.
The oldest Zs turn 22 this year. They are the newest employees and interns in your company and the youngest people who buy what you sell. Zs are the kids in your house, teens at the mall, students in our classrooms, your nieces, nephews, and grandkids.

Here’s the surprise. Gen Z shares generational DNA with their grandparents and great-grands, the Silent generation that came of age in the wake of World War II.
