Jonah Stillman – Make Way for GenZ

Jonah is Co-Founder, Author and Speaker at Gen Z Guru.

Jonah and a team of peers conducted one of the first national surveys in the United States about Gen Z’s workplace attitudes. The eye-opening results ignited Jonah’s interest in keeping the dialogue going. Together with his dad, David Stillman they published Gen Z @Work which describes the seven key traits of Gen Z.

He is the youngest speaker on the circuit and has already shared his insights on Gen Z with CNBC, MSNBC, and CBS and was recently featured in Fast Company, TIME, INC, Forbes and the NY Times.

Success Magazine voted David and Jonah in the top 25 most influential speakers and authors of 2018.

Jonah’s dynamic keynote will give you fresh insights on what makes this newest generation tick and is based on the first national studies of Gen Z’s workplace attitudes, interviews with hundreds of CEOs, cutting-edge case studies and insights from Gen Zers themselves.
