Are Generations Global? The Answer is Economic.

In summer of 2018, Microsoft INSPIRE recognized Amy Lynch with a Speaker of Excellence award. Below are excerpts from her “Innovation Across Generations” presentation to that international audience.   Within this room, we are incredibly diverse.  Each of us lives in a series of complex identity bubbles. Our gender identity, for example, creates a sort of bubble that shapes our experience, as do ethnicity and race and personality type.  Then... Read More

Looking for the Right Business Partner? Try a Different Generation. Here's Why.

Amy Lynch is advisor to 4GenNow, a powerful hub for connecting intergenerational entrepreneurs. Learn more at 4GenNow.com , and attend the summit in Denver this October.   I was in a meeting a few years ago when two Gen Xers said the same thing at the same time.

Notes on NOT Being the Generations Police

Generations expert Amy Lynch tries very hard not to be the generations police.  Some of her best friends are Xennials.   The End of Big Bucket Gens No doubt you’ve heard a Big Buckets generations speech.

2020: Will Your Generation Be Invisible?

Amy spoke recently to the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research . THESE ARE NOTES FROM her ADDRESS.      The room was full of data-heads. Everybody there spoke “numbers” fluently.
