Jason Dorsey Speaker Biography

Jason Dorsey is the #1 speaker and researcher on crossing the generational divide in business. He’s received over 1,000 standing ovations for his unexpected research-based discoveries and trademark high-energy speaking style.

“One of the most compelling and engaging speakers I’ve come across in my career…equal parts researcher, social anthropologist, and entertainer.” – CEO, Mercedes-Benz USA

A pioneering researcher, Jason has led more than 120 research studies to solve the generational divide for the biggest brands and global leaders. He’s helped major brands go from last to first in employee retention, inspired the rebuilding of trust and communication in challenging cultures, and ignited sales
growth for both legacy and upstart brands in massively crowded markets. Jason’s research has uncovered that most business problems are actually generational problems.

The go-to expert on generational insights, Jason has appeared on 60 Minutes, The Today Show, CNN, CNBC, HLN, BBC, and over 200 more TV shows, as well as a front-page story in The New York Times. Adweek calls Jason a “research guru.”

Jason’s unique approach to exploring generations and uncovering practical business solutions is why he’s received standing ovations at executive events from Paris to Singapore and Mexico City to New York City. Leaders value Jason’s insights because he has been shoulder-to-shoulder with them. Jason founded two Inc. 5000 companies, served on the board of directors of a public software company acquired for $11 billion, and actively serves on company boards backed by private equity and venture capital.

A bestselling author at age 18, Jason’s latest bestselling book for leaders is Zconomy: How Gen Z Will Change the Future of Business—and What to Do About It. Jason gains his actionable insights as President of The Center for Generational Kinetics, the leading generational research firm with clients representing every major industry. This enables him to bring the latest data to executive offsites, must-deliver management meetings, and high-profile industry events.

“Jason’s work with our team has had a profound impact on how we communicate with our consumers and manage our multi-generational workforce.” – CEO, PepsiCo Foods North America

Jason is also a Millennial, married to a Gen X’er, and they have a Gen Z daughter. Really.
