About the Presentation

This presentation will harness our collective expertise to share the critical role of Millennials in Radical Transformation and some of the rules of engagement. We are going to explore some of the ways to attract, engage, and motivate the Millennial generation in this era of Radical Transformation.

With the post pandemic new normal, Radical Transformation will push the envelope and bring much-needed progressive change, while expanding the global reach and sense of community. It is also critical to engage Millennials, and to give them the tools they need to impact effortlessly.

It has become critical and mandatory to engage this generation, which represents the largest population as a group, and who already have the inherent skills and technological know-how to thrive and succeed virtually, with minimal human intervention, while applying tried and tested methodologies.

In 2020, Millennials and Gen Zers staked their claim as the majority of the global workforce, with more than one-third living in just two countries: India and China. In addition, Millennials were the largest generation group in the U.S. in 2019, with an estimated population of 72.1 million.
