A rising expert in his field, Zak Dychtwald explores the lifestyles and habits of Chinese Millennials through extensive dedication and research, to better understand the world’s consumers of today and tomorrow.

Zak Dychtwald is the founder and CEO of Young China Group, a think tank and consultancy focusing on China’s emerging identity on the world stage and the evolving East and West millennial mindset. He is the author of Young China: How the Restless Generation Will Change Their Country and the World, which explores how the country’s young generation, born after 1990, feels about everything. A 29-year old Columbia University graduate, he has spoken at forums and summits across four continents as a rising authority in his field.

Dychtwald speaks about the attitudes and consumer drivers of China’s 417 million millennials—who they are, how they stack up against global millennials, their impact on global innovation, what they want, and why they want it. This generation redefines every market they touch, and Dychtwald gives you an insider’s guide into understanding how this generation is changing the world.

We loved having Zak as an external speaker! Not only was the content relevant for our audience but Zak’s delivery and energy during the presentation was incredibly engaging. We’ve already received lots of positive look forward to potential connections in the future.

Zak was truly amazing at our event. He blew a very senior group of global CEOs and board members away with his unique perspectives and deep domain knowledge of China, its demographics and how its younger population will impact the world in the decades ahead. While we had many great and well-known speakers, Zak’s session was highest rated of the conference.
– Chairman, Global Semiconductor Investment Banking, Morgan Stanley
Zak gave one of the best talks in the history of our investment group. His presentation changed the way many in our group approach China.
– Investment and Life Planning Group
Zak was the highlight of our conference. His talk was personalized and engaging from the start. He has the unique ability to build understanding between two cultures through powerful storytelling. His takeaways were so clear that we had speakers quoting him throughout the day in relation to their other sessions. We can’t wait to have him back!
Zakary Dychtwald is an extraordinarily gifted communicator of ideas. His passion to understand China, together with his deep research, helps inform audiences of the opportunities brought about by this demographic cohort. For people wanting to understand the dynamics shaping the world’s future, they should speak with Zak.
