Generation Y & Z – understand, excite and retain young talents

Experience the beat of the young generation to understand, how to attract the talents you want and how to keep them. The key to success with Generation Y & Z is a triad of fun, purpose and security. In this keynote you’ll understand how to play it and synchronize changes with the older generation.

New Leadership – engaging and motivating Generation Z & Y

If you work with young people, you know how severely the requirements to be a good leader are increasing with Gen Z & Y. The most important steps on the way to become an inspiring and successful leader with the next generation are: engagement, fun and storytelling. This keynote inspires to rethink leadership and try new methods and approaches. And even better: it inspires to let others do.

Generation Z – designers of the future

Please beware young employs from this statement: „This is how we’ve always done it”. The recipe to promote a culture of innovation instead of killing ideas requires three ingredients: an important task, the courage not to control and the will to allow ideas to have an impact. With this keynote you’ll grow your confidence to let young people do. And you’ll be equipped with concrete examples and valuable advice to surround yourself with creative thinking and entrepreneurial action.
