After studying and sharing the stories of the world’s smartest and most talented Millennials, I’ve begun working with a limited number of C-suite and senior executives at large organizations and Fortune 500s in order to help with Millennial employee engagement, talent retention, and marketing to the “next generation”.
Companies like IBM, Ogilvy, Samsung, Estee Lauder, Facebook, AdAge, Citi, Bacardi, TED Institute, and others have brought me in to consult and speak on topics pertaining to the an overused-but-important buzzword we know as “Millennials” that encompasses the future of corporate talent pools and marketplace consumers.
Regardless of your personal views of our generation, and whether or not you think your “Millennial” at home is taking out the trash enough, keeping their room clean, or has entitlement issues you simply cannot shake (or if the Millennials in your office are asking for a raise too quickly, seem lazy, or don’t dress the part for work…and honestly, these are ALL complaints I’ve heard from SVPs of Fortune 500 companies about their kids or team members), complaining across generations won’t solve any of our problems.
Instead, how can you, like others we’ve worked with, switch to offense and find actionable ways to recruit top young talent, retain and engage top-performers in their earliest years at your company, and communicate to your external stakeholders and customers that you’re looking ahead to the future?
I’d like to help. As someone who has created communities for Millennials that include individuals collectively running companies worth billions of dollars whose products and services influence hundreds of millions of people each month, I’ve tapped into the networks, knowledge, and know-how you’ll need to take some practical “next steps” to continue leading your industry and fend off the competitors, large and small.
Let me help you:
- Engage and retain top Millennial employees, saving your company (on average) $25,000+ for every person and for every year you’re able to retain young talent beyond our generational average of 2 years in a new role.
- Understand (and share with key members of your organization) why young people hold more power than ever before, and how to bridge intergenerational gaps in the workplace in order to improve company culture and efficiency.
- How to leverage and unite the voice, influence, and expertise of the top Millennial minds in your industry and organization to move your business strategy into the “next generation”.
- Increase your ability to acquire top talent by understanding the new employer-employee dynamics our generation faces and how your organization can benefit from a record-low in new business creation among the most entrepreneurial generation yet (leaving lots of “intrapreneurs” on the table for hire).
- Plot exponential success and impact for your organization from the lesson curated by hundreds of top-performers in their 20s and early 30s who are creating new industries and shaking up old ones in a matter of years.
- Create innovation networks and frameworks to push your organization forward in predictable and replicable fashion.
- Tackle any additional questions and qualms you have about Millennials in the workplace…
While most of our consulting clients at Kleinert Ventures work with us for three months or more at a time, we can start with a targeted strategy session and go deeper if you’d like. We also having speaking services, which you can learn about here.
Of course, these opportunities aren’t right for everyone; they are personalized and fast-paced in terms of kickoff and implementation afterwards, and are therefore priced accordingly. If you’d like low-cost educational resources, you can read my books 2 Billion Under 20 (named the “#1 Entrepreneurship Book of 2015″ by the Axiom Business Book Awards) and 3 Billion Under 30 which I just released in January 2017 to profile seventy-five friends of mine who collectively run companies worth billions and influence hundreds of millions of people every month with their work.
You can also watch some of my talks online, like this TED talk, this speech for the National Speakers Association, and this conversation with Elite Daily about President Trump and his use of Twitter. Additionally, I’ve written various articles for outlets like Forbes, TIME, Fortune, and others, which are easy to Google and pull insights from about our generation if you want to do that before making a deeper commitment to working together.
However, if you understand that speed matters in changing your strategy around how you’re engaging Millennials internally and externally for your organization, then I’d love to work with you.
Why Work With Me?
I have been named USA Today’s “Most Connected Millennial”, Inc.’s “Most Connected ‘Kid’ You Don’t Know Yet (But Probably Should), and by the United Nations as a “Champion For Humanity”. While I don’t read much into my own press, I share these things only to shoulder some of the “social proof” burden on other reputable organizations so this section of my site isn’t just me bragging about myself. I’d rather you hear why I’m awesome from other people (see the “Testimonials” section below).
However, to continue on about myself, I am a TED and TEDx speaker, entrepreneur, and award-winning author of:
- 2 Billion Under 20 – Named the “#1 Entrepreneurship Book of 2015″ according to the Axiom Business Book Awards, sold in 4 languages, and a “challenge to all young people across the globe” according to Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos).
- 3 Billion Under 30 – brand new release from January 2017 that features “tell-all” stories and actionable advice from 75 top-performing Millennials who collectively run companies worth billions of dollars and influence hundreds of millions of people every month with their work.
My firm, Kleinert Ventures, has become go-to marketing help for #1 New York Times bestselling authors, founders of billion dollar brands, Fortune 500 companies, VC-backed startups, Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees, Thiel Fellows, and multinational nonprofit organizations and most of the major media outlets (ABC, FOX, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Fast Company, Business Insider, Washington Post, TIME, Mashable, Fortune, Observer, Huffington Post, Techcrunch, VentureBeat, etc) have quoted me and/or featured in print and on their websites.
Put simply, I know more tastemakers in the Millennial generation than anyone else, and I know more about Millennials than most others as well. You’ll be hard pressed to find someone who can open more doors and minds than me and my time, and that’s because I’ve put in the time to build meaningful and authentic relationships with the individuals leading the charge to change the entrepreneurial, cultural, and corporate landscapes of our industry.
This can be put to use in helping you and your organization to accomplish your goals, and I can’t wait to be your cheerleader. #PomPomsAtTheReady
“Jared was our guest speaker for our Star Summit, an event for our Next Generation Leaders at Bacardi. Jared has an extremely unique way of having individual impact, even in a room of 31 different employees from 17 different markets. I received multiple sets of praise for Jared and his talk from the group. They were inspired by his collaborative outlook in life, his persistence to do great things for others and elevate them up not to mention his great skills at roasting marshmallows in our beach bonfire! Very easily Jared was ingrained into the Bacardi family and he was a great asset to have during our three day Star Summit through inspiring and thought provoking conversations.” – Nim de Swardt, Chief Next Gen Officer at Bacardi

This sort of “VIP” day will provide the most benefit for a VP, senior VP, or C-suite executive at a large organization with the ability to turn the strategy and connections discussed into high-leverage action for their company. I’m willing to meet on meetings if gathering team members to join us for an all-day strategy session would prove too difficult and/or you find no other time in the next couple months to pack this into your busy schedule. I’m ready to come in, provide you surgical and precise value, and get you back to executing on that with the necessary players.
This is probably NOT right for you if you’re the CEO of a small company, a middle manager with little budgetary authority, or too busy in the next 3-6 months to justify this investment of your time because you don’t see an immediate “ROI”, even if you do understand the long-term value of properly preparing yourself for the future of our society’s workforce and consumer base. Unless our work is acted upon quickly, it’s not going to be helpful to you, and if you can’t find time to bring me in over the next couple quarters, this probably isn’t as high of a priority for you as it should be.
Other than that, let me wrap up…
I’m charging just $3997 for this VIP Day.
For comparison, I’ve NEVER allowed anyone in the past to hire me just for a day, or at an hourly rate, and my current speaking fee is $15,000 to deliver a one hour keynote and perhaps some Q&A.
My usual consulting clients start with my at $18,000+ multi-month packages for work.
What’s my “no risk” guarantee?
My guarantee is that if you don’t find our day together valuable, I’ll refund your investment entirely and I’ll also write a $1000 check to the charity of your choice. That’s how much I respect your time and feel that this would be a good call for you.
So, are you in?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set up a call so I can answer any further questions you may have.
