A little about Brad Szollose…

Has anyone noticed that Generation Y, Millennials, Digital Natives or Gamers — whatever you want to call them — do NOT act like (us) Baby Boomers? Well, our guest today is going help us understand WHY they act the way they do and how that impacts your business.

In other words, HOW do you manage, market and sell to a new tech-savvy generation…a generation raised on Information Age tools since childhood?

Generational Expert and Web Pioneer Brad Szollose is the *award winning author of Liquid Leadership: From Woodstock to Wikipedia which explores the subject of new leadership styles — mainly how to get the tech-savvy Generation Y and analogue driven Baby Boomers working together.

But this is not based on management theory: During the Dot Com Era of the mid 90’s, Brad co-founded the very first Dot Com agency to go public on NASDAQ – K2 Design. His company grew from 2 business partners to 60+ employees, offices worldwide, 4 business partners and a valuation of $26 million.

Brad was catapulted from entrepreneur to C-Suite Executive, and began developing unique management and marketing models for the first wave of Generation X and Y– raised on video games, computers and The Internet.

Today, Brad helps businesses, educators and individuals close the Generational Divide by understanding it as a Cultural Divide – created by the new tech-savvy worker…and customer.
