The latest Census revealed millennials make up 25 percent of the U.S. population – outnumbering any other age demographic. And with a buying power of more than $200 billion annually, millennials are a target demographic no business or company can afford to overlook. But, there are some critical characteristics that set this tech-savvy, well-connected, “selfie” generation apart from older generations.

She’ll share insights about trends that shape their spending habits, factors that drive their workplace and career-related motivations as well as key comparisons and contrasts to older generations.
