Gen Y's consumer habits & how it's shaping their generation

The Audience Measurement Event's keynote speaker Kit Yarrow, Consumer Psychologist, Golden Gate University & Author of GenBuy recently appeared on Chad Whittle's radio show and discussed many of the topics she'll be covering at that conference. GenY has had an ever-growing influence on retail as they've pushed the digital into this space due to their constant connection to the world via their phones and computers. Other things that are unique to this generation is their constantly promoted self esteem. They've received empowerment from their influencers (parents, teachers, etc) their entire life, and therefore are seeing difficulties matching their strengths to their environmental needs.
