Rebecca Ryan, futurist and economist

The workforce is changing. What does that mean to your business?

Rebecca Ryan, a futurist, economist and “brain shaker” will deliver the keynote address to answer that very question at AWB Institute’s first-ever 2017 Workforce Summit on Wednesday, March 22, at Motif hotel in Seattle.

At the summit, Ryan will address generational changes and issues in today’s workplace employers face as boomers retire, Generation Xs solidify their leadership roles and millennials and Generation Zs enter the workforce at an historic level and begin to take on greater responsibility in the workplace. The half-day event will give participants - business owners, leaders and human resources professionals - the tools they need to harness talent and leadership skills within a multi-generational workplace and help generations better understand and appreciate their commonalities and differences.

And, she’ll explain how companies can plan ahead for the shift in workforce – not just a year or two ahead, but many years into the future.

Ryan is the author of ReGENERATION: A Manifesto for America’s Future Leaders and Live First, Work Second: Getting Inside the Head of the Next Generation. She is the founder of Next Generation Consulting, the resident futurist at the Alliance for Innovation and a senior fellow at CEOS for Cities.

She has been named to the Top 100 Most Influential People by Accounting Today, Communicator of the Year by Women in Communication, Women of Influence by the Business Journal of the Greater Milwaukee and Entrepreneur of the Year by the U.S. Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Her tagline is: “The future is ours to create.” Watch her speak here.
