Jonah Stillman (Gen Zer)
Jonah Stillman graduated from high school in 2017 and is pursuing a life as an entrepreneur. Growing up, for 10-years Jonah competed on the national US circuit in snowboarding. He was ranked in the top 5 in the US before hanging up his helmet to pursue working with his Dad in the generational field. Jonah and a team of peers conducted one of the first national surveys about Gen Z's workplace attitudes. The eye-opening results ignited Jonah's interest in keeping the dialogue going. After growing up watching his dad - David - be the voice of his generation, Jonah is excited to be a voice of Gen Z. He is the youngest speaker on the circuit and has already shared his insights on Gen Z with CNBC, MSNBC, and CBS and was recently featured in Fast Company, TIME, INC, Forbes and the NY Times.
