Jeff Fromm's speaking fee falls
within range: $15,000 to $20,000
Jeff Fromm is one of nation’s leading authorities on Millennials and how to market to them. As President of the marketing consultancy, FutureCast, he’s spearheaded some of the most cutting-edge research in the last ten years on the Millennial mindset and the dramatic financial influence they have on Baby Boomers and GenXers. As a speaker, he goes beyond theory, showing companies the best practices for winning and keeping Millennial allegiance.
Fromm is the co-author of the best-selling books Marketing to Millennials and Millennials with Kids. His third and most recent book, Marketing to Gen Z explores the values and mindset of Millennials’ successors – the socially-conscious cohort that grew up during the Great Recession and will comprise an estimated 40% of consumers by 2020. Fromm frequently contributes to Forbes.com and has delivered over 500 keynotes around the world.
Fromm holds a marketing degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Over his 25+ years in marketing, he has played a pivotal role in building and innovating nationally known brands, including Hallmark, KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce, and Build-A-Bear Workshop. Prior to establishing FutureCast, he was executive vice president of Barkley, the largest employee-owned advertising agency in the United States.
As the Millennial and Gen Z Marketing Guy, Jeff Fromm has traveled the world speaking professionally on how youth culture is impacting the marketplace — as well as the consumer behaviors of every generation. In 2010 Jeff led the first public study of Millennials through a partnership with the Boston Consulting Group. That work informed his first book “Marketing to Millennials.” He has since co-authored 3 more: “Millennials with Kids,” “Marketing to Gen Z” and “The Purpose Advantage.” Jeff is also a regular contributor to Forbes.
Jeff is the president of Futurecast, a forward-thinking trends consultancy, and a partner at Barkley, a creative idea company. While others may talk about trends, Jeff and his partners merge such insights to create marketing and innovation best practices—these applications are the basis of Jeff’s presentations.
With years of brand marketing consulting experience, his humorous stories and provocative new strategy paradigms are supported by hard research and real client profit growth.
He published the first public research study of Millennials as Consumers with the Boston Consulting Group in 2010 & 2011. He has traveled the world sharing insights on consumer trends, youth culture as well as purpose & sustainability.
Millennial marketing expert, Jeff Fromm explains how companies can kindle and sustain "brand love" with the labor force's youngest demographic. Drawing from nationwide research, "The Millennial Mindset", conducted by his firm, Futurecast, he reveals the necessary ingredients and best practices for creating long-lasting passionate relationships with a generation, 10 million of which are earning six-figure salaries.
One of the most critical factors, Fromm underscores, is brand behavior. If you try to publicly position yourself as a kind humanitarian figure, but mistreat your employees and community on a daily basis, you cannot hide that from Millennials in this age of transparency. "The era I see in the future is going to be around story living," Fromm predicts, "which is to suggest that great brands aren't going to merely be able to tell that story; they're going to have to provide demonstrable proof that they're living that story every day."
In an economy with endless options, stiff competition, and well-informed consumers who demand more, maintaining an emotional and passionate relationship with satisfied customers today requires more effort and creativity than ever before. Top Millennial and marketing expert, Jeff Fromm tosses out-of-date marketing advice aside and equips companies to embrace the new “participation economy”, create “brand love”, and keep it strong.
