WHAT IS A NEXT GENERATION CATALYST?
A Next Generation Catalyst (NGC) is a fresh aspect of our connected culture that sparks change and innovation. They can be as large as entire generations and as small as a to-do app on your smartphone. Next Generation Catalysts give you the needed leverage in this noisy and crowded economy to get your message heard, brand built, or productivity soaring.
Because of their sheer size and the digital age they grew up in, the Millennials are driving much of today’s innovation. This makes them one of the greatest catalysts of change in the past few decades…maybe of all time.

Ryan Jenkins began work as a sales professional in the technology industry after graduating from Miami University (OH) with a degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. It didn’t take long for him to notice and experience first hand the friction between generations in the workplace.
To better understand this workplace issue, he began researching, collaborating with industry experts, and interviewing 100s of Millennials to better understand their behavior, strengths, employer expectations, and career desires. This led him to write the book, “The GenEdge: Leveraging Millennials With A Next Generation Mindset,” which empowers leaders to think differently about the emerging generation in order to capitalize on their size and unique skills.
Now he shares his insights from the stage where he’s spoken alongside fellow thought leaders from iconic brands like Apple, Facebook, and Uber for the last 7+ years. He also share his insights as a contributor for Inc.com, Millennial Magazine, TalentCulture, Business 2 Community, and HR Cloud.
