Having researched generational dynamics for more than a quarter-century and then worked side-by-side with hundreds of clients to execute a long list of generational strategies, he is considered one of the elite consultants in generational strategy.  

His A-List clients operate in business, government, education, religion, politics, media and entertainment, philanthropy, and virtually every other industry-type.
