Leading and succeeding in the New World Marketplace 


We’ve all heard the myths, clichés, and rhetoric on the impact of globalization.  We’ve heard sound bites on the customer trends, forecasts and prognostications.  Many pundits and politicians talk about global leadership but they miss the core issue facing every business and community leader.  When you are in a leadership role,  “We” is getting trickier to define in terms of culture, race, ethnicity, gender roles, beliefs and values?

You simply can not ignore the 3 major macro trends challenging today’s and future leaders in the New World Marketplace:  the shifting roles of women at home and at work, the new values and ideological power of youth culture, and the growth and influence of multicultural consumers and societies.  Farnaz will spark awareness of these critical cultural and social shifts, redefining what diversity really means to your organization and community.  Consider the following facts and projections:

  • The majority of the US will soon be non-white, with no single ethnic or racial majority by 2055
  • Asia has replaced Latin America (including Mexico) as the biggest source of new immigrants to the US
  • Hispanics, Asians & multi-racial children accounted for almost all of the US population growth this past decade
  • For every two men graduating from college, three women graduate, and with better GPAs
  • Women are the largest target market opportunity globally, with $20 trillion in annual consumer spending, expected to rise to $30 trillion in the next five years..
  • 85% of all buying decisions are made by women in the US
  • Gen Y is 3x the size of Gen X, soon to be the largest global work force and consumers
  • Gen Y and Gen Z are multicultural and last generations to be majority white
  • The world is aging, a big demographic challenge globally
  • Cultural values is the most important value in consumers’ minds

As a cultural change expert and sought- after inspirational speaker, Farnaz challenges leaders to foresake their past orthodoxies, biases and prejudices that hold them back from future growth and success.  After this keynote, leaders will walk away with:

  • An understanding of the societal transformation and rapid demographics and cultural shifts emerging today
  • What these 3 major macro trends mean to you, your organization, and your bottomline
  • How to become a Diversity Leader for your organization and succeed in the New World Marketplace
  • Bridging cultural gaps and leveraging on shared commonalities in values and beliefs
  • Tools to navigate cross-cultural relationships

A road map for growth and profitability in The New World Marketplace

A rapid demographics and cultural shift has occurred over the last decade, but it’s not being addressed or spoken to by your strategic planning and branding messages.  In today’s economy, many companies struggle to deliver mutually profitable Value Propositions to their target customers without a good understanding of these shifts, and often abandon the core essence and personal revelation of the brand to survive.

In this keynote (or management workshop), Farnaz will de-mystify the 3 major macro trends that are key to your future growth and profitability:

  1. The shifting roles of women at home and at work
  2. The new values and ideological power of Millennials and youth culture
  3. The growth and influence of multicultural consumers, employees and societies

These three trends –once considered small niches–are now major target markets, and businesses must communicate to them in order to stay relevant and prosperous.  Understanding and embracing this roadmap is essential in succeeding in today’s economic climate and globally competitive world.

As a cultural change and growth consultant, Farnaz cuts through the myths, prejudices and biases that hold your organization back from this extraordinary potential for profitable growth.  The passion she brings to the stage will inspire you to evaluate whether your value proposition, value delivery system and communications strategies contradicts or supports the values and beliefs of these vibrant booming macro trends.

Farnaz’s expertise in connecting critical demographics and cultural shifts to growth strategies will ensure your opportunity for differentiation and success in this fiercely competitive global marketplace.  She will clarify strategic priorities that can put your organization far ahead of your competition. You will re-learn what Diversity means and why embracing these hungry and growing customer base will have a significant impact on your bottom line.

Farnaz will discuss and address these strategies:
