Keynote Speakers

NHLA is proud to announce the Keynote Speakers for 2018!


Paul Moya

Opening Session Keynote Speaker

Wednesday, October 3, 2018


Harvard Multigenerational Expert Paul Moya is best known for his role as CEO of Millennial Labs—a global consulting firm focused on segmentation marketing and generational behavior. His discoveries have impacted leaders in audiences as large as 54,000 and have helped brands such as Visa, Microsoft, General Motors, and the Department of Defense to interpret and act on human behavior in the workplace, marketplace, and voting booth.

As a lifelong entrepreneur and former Student Government Association President at Harvard, Paul knows first-hand the pressures of growing and leading operations at large scales while engaging and retaining Millennial employees, consumers, and voters during every step of the way.

Nicknamed the ‘Harvard Cowboy’ by clients and friends, Paul blends Harvard Strategy with Cowboy Practicality to present viable solutions that deliver quantifiable results. His research takes insight from psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, and plain old-fashioned ‘cowboy wisdom’ to close the gap between the big-data strategies he gained at Harvard and the “no fluff solutions” he mastered atop a Chestnut horse named ‘Frisky.’
