Anna Liotta
Renowned Generational Speaker & Author
CEO of Resultance

Anna Liotta, MA, CSP, is an award-winning keynote speaker and best-selling author with a deep understanding from 20 years of research on how generational demographics and dynamics affect every aspect of business success.

Early in her career, Anna identified a common theme: a fundamental lack of understanding between different generations within an organization hinders trust, alignment, and bottom-line outcomes. This led to her life’s work of helping people develop practical strategies for optimal communications across generations.

Anna’s most impressive generational credential, however, is that Anna is the youngest girl of nineteen children. This means that every Thanksgiving, graduation, or wedding is a fascinating case study in multi-generational communication. The founder of The Generational Institute™ and author of Unlocking Generational CODES, © Anna’s clients range from the PGA of America to the NBA, from Amazon.com to Coca Cola.

Anna holds a Master’s degree in Interpersonal Communication. She currently serves as the President of the National Speakers Association.

Generation Workforce:
“Unlocking Generational Codes”

Unlocking Generational CODES© is the key to understanding the people around you—young and old and in between. Generational expert, Anna Liotta, takes readers on a journey of how members of each generation think, behave, and engage.
