New Topic Featured for 2012:

America's New Direction

Everyone agrees that the mood across America is changing rapidly.  We seem to be entering a new period of national urgency, and perhaps even global crisis, with new worries about financial collapse, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and global instability.  In their 1997 book The Fourth Turning, LifeCourse co-founders Neil Howe and William Strauss predicted that this was just where America would be today.  They uncovered a remarkable pattern in American history, a cycle of recurring eras driven by generational changes.  Using this proven historical method, we offer a road map that truly explains where America is today-and, more importantly, where it is heading, from the economy and consumer tastes to politics and popular culture. 

Other Featured Topics:

  • Millennials and K-12 Education. Generational changes are dramatically reshaping the landscape of K-12 education-from hyper-involved parents to new issues over school security to the rising focus on teamwork and standards in the classroom. We offer a road map to help educators best serve today's Millennial generation of students, align their priorities with the new Gen-X parents, and navigate a multigenerational education workforce. Learn more about Neil Howe's K-12 keynote speeches.
  • Millennials and College. Meet the rising Millennial generation of students—and their hands-on parents. Understanding Millennials is key to navigating the seismic shifts occurring at America's colleges, from changing notions of campus security to increased focus on career placement to "helicopter" moms and dads. We offer a big picture perspective on the most pressing new trends and hands-on recommendations for anyone involved in college life.
  • Generations in the Workplace. In today's typical business, Boomers and Gen Xers have trouble understanding each other—and neither generation knows what to do about the rising young Millennials. We explain how each of these generations look at work and life differently. Find out what the best companies are doing to unleash the potential of each generation and foster productive relationships between them.
  • Generational Marketing. Many companies have recognized the need to look beyond traditional demographic categories and understand the effect generational change has on the marketing industry. We trace the life stories and characteristics of today's generations of consumers to help you understand what product styles and marketing messages work best for each.

We can bundle a keynote speech with seminars or breakout sessions after the address.  Our books and publications can also be volume-purchased for distribution prior to or after a keynote to assure that the important ideas and applications have maximum impact.

We often accommodate clients who are interested in topics other than those outlined above.  For more information, or to discuss your particular needs, please contact us.
