Jessica’s recent presentation to our Northeast Tennessee Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) was outstanding! She is a dynamic and personable speaker, and she related well to all of the generations represented at our meeting. She provided us with great tips and insight to consider when we recruit the Millennial generation. We highly recommend her speaking services.
“As someone who works with Millennials and also trains them, I often feel frustrated with what I perceived as generational failures. Jessica’s speech gave me insight to understand what 20-somethings are thinking and that their perspective is worth paying attention to.”
“Jessica Stollings is invigorating. Her content was right on target for our attendees. Her presentations engaged our audience across all generations. I would recommend her to any group seeking a speaker facilitator who is relevant and effectively communicates. People in our organization are still talking about Jessica’s thoughtful approach and her recently published book.”
“Jessica provides practical and easily executable solutions that could impact organizations immediately. She has a delivery style that both captures and holds the attention of the audience.”
“Jessica’s presentation to Big Bend SHRM at HR Tallahassee was enlightening and entertaining. Jessica is a great presenter and has a passion for this topic. HR Managers need to understand how generations impact the workforce. Our members thoroughly enjoyed Jessica’s presentation.”
Generations 101: UNDERSTAND
How to help different generations understand each other and work together for a more effective organization
This foundational keynote will impact everyone in your organization – from the new hire wondering why questions aren’t indulged to the longtime manager wondering how to explain that career progression takes time.
With the fast pace of change in American society, each generation has grown up in a different world, resulting in social and cultural differences that shape mindsets and expectations. Generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings uses theoretical, historical and practical knowledge to present a high-level view of the four generations in the workforce and how to bring them together for greater understanding – and more effective working relationships.
This ReGenerations keynote is a prerequisite to all the others.
Generations 201: APPRECIATE
How to leverage the collective strengths of all generations as a strategic advantage for your organization
You know different generational perspectives are colliding in the workplace, but what you really want to know is what to do about it: How do you combine fundamentally different views to build something better and stronger?
In this enlightening and practical session, speaker and author Jessica Stollings guides you through challenging questions to ask – as an individual and as an organization – and provides you with a framework to see differences in a more positive and productive light. Using research, best practices, and real-life examples, you’ll learn how to move beyond basic generational understanding into deeper learning and action, harnessing generational strengths to improve outcomes today and into the future.
Generations 301: COMMUNICATE
How to communicate across generational lines so everyone gets the message
Even with the best intentions, sometimes messages get lost in generational translation. In other words, someone from a different generation may use a different channel, miss the message, or not understand what you mean – and, within an organization, this can be a big problem.
With real-world examples, a translation guide, and meaningful action steps you can implement right away, generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings will guide you toward communication that reaches all generations, whether for multi-generational sales and marketing or simply for internal communication. It’s a strategy that will ensure you communicate clearly across a spectrum of demographic and culture shifts.
Generations 401: TRANSFER
How to harness generational insights to plan for future success
By 2030, the workplace – and the people who lead within it – will look very different. As you face the implications of the massive generational shift that’s taking place, the time to prepare is now. In this forward-thinking session, speaker and author Jessica Stollings empowers you to use generational trends to evaluate where you can adapt to build enduring success.
With guidance presented through divergent thinking exercises, change readiness mapping, and knowledge transfer best practices, she’ll take you on a journey to transform generational disruption into innovation—and draw on the insights of all generations to ensure your company’s legacy.
These foundational sessions can stand alone or build on one another.

Additional keynotes and training
Make Sure Millennials Can Work for You
How to attract, retain, and develop the next generation
Turnover among members of the millennial generation – people in their 20s and early 30s – can be a headache and a drain on the bottom line. The reality is that these young adults think and behave differently from previous generations, and not always in the ways you’d expect. Understanding their mindset can help ensure the life and future of your organization.
Generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings will guide you through what makes America’s largest generation tick – plus some practical action steps you can take to help them transition smoothly into your organization. A millennial herself, she’ll share secrets to help you tap into their strengths and the value of an intergenerational workforce.
From College to Career
How to transition to the workplace with grace and success
As a Millennial entering the workplace, you’re probably enthused but very confused. Although you have a wide scope of experience, and may have even traveled the globe, the working world remains uncharted – even forbidding – territory. Where and how do you find your place?
As young adults approach the transition from college to the workforce, it’s important for them to understand where they’re headed. Generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings, a fellow member of the Millennial generation, will explore the current work environment and the three older generations that helped to shape it. Using personal stories, research, and interactive activities, she’ll walk them through what they need to know about business norms and expectations like how to navigate the hiring process, communicate professionally, and transition smoothly into a multi-generational workforce.
Generations and Giving
How to reach a new generation of donors while cultivating generosity among all generations
It’s one of the big questions being asked by nonprofits across the country: How can we appeal to the next generation of donors without losing our base? In this session, generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings introduces you to the next generation of donors and volunteers – and how to reach them alongside the mature generations you’ve depended on before.
For a company, this session can focus on how to cultivate generosity in your corporate culture in a way that rings true across generations – and makes a positive difference in your community.
Spaces That Spark Intergenerational Connections
How to design multi-generational spaces for greater productivity
As the generational makeup of the workforce changes, work spaces are evolving: cubicle walls are coming down, shared spaces are coming up, and technology is getting a seat at the table. For some, the change is uncomfortable; for others, it’s a breath of fresh air.
While offices have always been evolving, current trends – including the demographic shift, the rise of freelancers, and the game-changing impact of technology – are having a big impact. Generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings will explain why spaces matter in a multi-generational workplace and delve into how you can create human-centered designs with the right balance of open and private spaces to encourage intergenerational collaboration and improve productivity.
Generations Across the Globe
How to work effectively with different generations across cultures
With ever-increasing global connectedness, generational and cultural literacy is a strategic advantage. So how do generational differences translate with our global partners – and, for that matter, different ethnic and cultural groups here in North America? Generational speaker and author Jessica Stollings will discuss the impact of geography – including which generational traits tend to be consistent across cultures and which may differ. You’ll gain a solid knowledge base to work more smoothly across generational and cultural lines and make informed talent decision on a global scale.
