“Great insight into what is shaping kids today”

Anne has great insight into what is shaping kids today and takes pride in assuring that the information she shares is grounded in a good foundation of credible information. Her presentation on Generation Z for the product developers at the Research Chef Association truly helped the audience see that this up and coming generation will have some defining qualities that will influence how and what they choose to eat in the future.

“Leading authority on post-millennial values”

Our firm recently interviewed Anne Boysen as part of a 3 month project for a large philanthropic and grantmaking organization around the future of democracy in the United States. Her expertise was added to voices from across different disciplines, including science fiction authors, legal institution executives, government agency leaders, national union heads and presidential speechwriters. As a leading authority on the future of generational and post-millennial values, Anne’s extensive knowledge and input into the project was a key element in defining how individuals will view and shape democracy over the next several decades. I would gladly work with her again, and recommend her to anyone wanting to create impactful foresight, strategy and innovation around generations in the workforce and society.

“Excellent Insight!”

I’ve been collaborating with Ms. Boysen for many months. Anne’s insight, enthusiasm, and knowledge of generational concepts and trends has been helpful in many ways while my production company pursues our documentary and website centered on Millennials. While Anne focuses currently on the next generation, the “Homelanders” as many are calling them, she brings value to our work with Millennials as well. We’ve published many of her articles and she is a featured columnist on our site. We hope to work with Anne on a documentary related to this newest, youngest generation born since the early 2000s.

    Reflections from World Future Society’s conference 2015

    One of the obligatory yearly conferences a professional futurist should attend is the one set up by World Future Society. I feel particularly obliged to attend since I am representing the Central Texas Chapter of the WFS in Austin as vice president. But alas, I haven’t attended since being a student in 2002 when I(…)

  • The Curious Absence of Next Generation Greeting Cards

    The Curious Absence of Next Generation Greeting Cards

    Last week I was standing dumbfounded at the CVS’ greeting card isle trying to look for a Father’s Day card for my husband. None of us are very conventional, and the typical pre-authored Hallmark card has rarely satisfied my somewhat snooty European taste. Somehow Hallmark seems to be in competition with ToysRUs’ gender segregated pink and blue isles, a puzzling(…)

  • “Against Generations” or Finding their Place?

    “Against Generations” or Finding their Place?

    I recently came across an article in Aeon called “Against Generations“, which is one of the harshest, yet most eloquent critiques of generational research I have read. Author Rebecca Onion disagrees with the epistemological justification for segmenting people based on age cohort, and (rightly) contends that much of the research is arbitrary and the categories(…)

Raising a Young Generation in the Ongoing Digital Revolution

From Central Texas chapter of World Future Society, May 2014. 45% of our current jobs will disappear by 2035. Middle class jobs are getting fewer as smart machines are replacing jobs and middle class incomes remain stagnant. How can we prepare the next generation to not only coexist, but actually prosper alongside computers in the third industrial revolution or Second Machine Age
