Engaging and Insightful Presentations

Abacus Data's CEO, David Coletto,  has spoken to a dozens of national, regional, and local audiences on what generational change means for businesses, associations, and charities.  He brings an engaging, interactive approach to speaking  engagements using original data and insights as a Millennial.

My approach to presenting is to enlighten, engage, and entertain but in a way that is respectful.  Too often, presentations about Millennials or generational change are condescending and sometimes insulting.  I bring a Millennial's perspective along with a research driven, data rich presentation.
