Millennial Mojo: Re-Imagining the Future of Education
If you want to feel very optimistic about the future, look no further. While one cannot generalize an entire generation, anticipating and influencing the positive impact that Millennials will have as leaders in education, business, and government is a tremendous opportunity. They are the largest generation, soon-to-be most influential in global leadership, and will live longer than their predecessors. Their magic—or "mojo"—is shaping the world.
Ravi's vantage point is uniquely relevant as a member of "Generation X"—the bridge between Millennials and Baby-Boomers. He takes his audiences on an inspiring personal journey that navigates the globe turning dreams into realities, yielding unparalleled insights into generations and cultures throughout the presentation.
In this eye-opening and thought-provoking keynote, discover how much the generations actually have in common and how to use these commonalities as building blocks for collaboration. Ravi depicts an optimistic future based on millennial character traits including their love for the arts (the key to teaching empathy), proclivity for entrepreneurship (the key to fostering identity), and natural ability to rise above social injustices. He also challenges audiences to consider how Artificial Intelligence will drive revenue and unemployment, the impact that will have on the disaffection of youth and vulnerability to radicalism, and how the millennial entrepreneurial spirit is critical in managing the consequences. Ultimately, Ravi empowers Boomers, Xers, and Millennials to successfully collaborate in order to overcome local to global challenges and maximize opportunities.

We look very forward to having him and seeing all of you in Portland 2017!
