Praise for The Gen Z Effect by Tom Koulopoulos and Dan Keldsen
"For years, I have experienced enterprises losing the wisdom of generations because of generational divides. This book offers hope and prescription for stemming that loss. It comes at a critical time in the evolution of organizations."
-Jim Champy, author of Reengineering the Corporation
"Working with some of the world's largest retailers I see first hand how critical it is to understand and integrate The Gen Z Effect into an organization's strategy for growth. Tom and Dan provide a clear view of the disruptive force that Gen Z is already having on our businesses and our world, as well as the sort of future we can all look forward to."
