Keynote Topic:

Understand, Recruit, & Lead Generation Z



The Problem:


62% of Generation Z anticipate challenges working with Baby Boomers and Generation X, and only 5% anticipate challenges working with Millennials. To ensure a cohesive cross-generational team, educators and employers need to understand and integrate Generation Z.


The Solution

Generation Z—born after 1998—is pouring into university classrooms and the workforce. They have an entirely different approach to learning, communication, technology, and work than previous generations (even the Millennials). Growing up enabled and empowered by a tech-heavy and digital world, Generation Z has new strengths, weaknesses, needs, and wants.

Ryan helps educators and employers understand Generation Z and how best to connect and engage this unprecedented generation. This program is packed with practical ways to attract, engage, and lead Generation Z.
