Make Way for Gen Z!

Believe it or not…there’s life after the Millennial generation.  A new generation is starting to hit our workforce, yet no one has been talking about it. Until now.

Are you ready for GenZ? Don’t be surprised when you find they are nothing like the Millennials and the time to get to know them is today.  The leading edge of GenZ has entered their 20s. While they might just be your intern for now, you need to know that they are your future workforce and marketplace.

Best selling author and generations expert David Stillman offers insights into the next generation – and even better, he’s bringing one along!  The first GenZ speaker to hit the circuit.

That’s right, the first GenX and GenZ (father-son) speaking combo can help you get ahead of the curve. No more speculating about the latest generation, here’s your chance to get the straight scoop from two experts, and have fun doing it!

Based on the results of a national Gen Z research study, GenZ@Work, audiences will get fresh insights on what makes this newest generation tick.  Who are they? What are their expectations around careers and the workplace?  How have changes in parenting styles shaped them in new ways?  What’s it going to take to get this generation in the door, on board, and up to speed?

You Will Learn:

  • Who are the primary generations in the workplace and marketplace today?
  • What makes Generation Z unique?
  • How has the influence of parents shaped this dynamic generation?
  • What’s it going to take to recruit, retain and manage them?

 

When Generations Collide 2.0

You may think you know the generations, but the Baby Boomers, Generation Xers and Millennials are carving out new territory as they evolve.  Now comes the latest twist—the arrival of Generation Z in the workplace and marketplace.  Just when you think you’ve bridged all the gaps, it’s time to learn about what happens when generations continue to collide.

In Generations 2.0, you will learn where all the generations are in their careers today and what they need to be successful. Where are the big generational issues on the horizon for leaders, managers, and individuals?  And what’s going to happen when a whole new generation arrives on the scene—Gen Z? 

This energizing, fresh, and funny update on Generations 2.0 will help you identify the gaps creating mayhem in your workplace and marketplace, apply smart solutions to help you navigate multigenerational minefields, and ultimately, look at the generations in a whole new way. 

David’s multimedia presentations are always entertaining and thought-provoking.  Known for customizing his material for every client, David can focus his generational insights in three distinct areas: 

  • Workplace: recruiting, retaining, communicating with 4 generations
  • Marketplace: customer service and sales for 4 generations
  • Giving: how to attract and retain 4 gens of donors and volunteers

You Will Learn:

  • What are the hot generational trends hitting the workplace and marketplace today?
  • How is the arrival of Generation Z going to shake things up?
  • What does each generation need to be successful?
  • How can you bridge the gaps more effectively whether you are a leader, a manager or an individual contributor?
