Intro to Generational Consequences

Instructor: Armida Ascano
Trend Hunter's Chief Content Officer, Armida Ascano, revisits the Micro-Generations Matrix, this time through the lens of the phases of Crisis, Chaos and Recharting. The goal is to help better map how each micro-generation changes in times of uncertainty.

How does each micro-generation react to crisis? How do their motivations shift and behaviors re-settle in the aftermath? Most importantly, what does this mean for their future desires and the decisions they make across industries?
