CAUTION - WORLD CHANGING STRATEGY CAUTION - WORLD CHANGING STRATEGY Target Citi wants to connect with the next generation of business leaders, as they are building their careers on the way up. These young highly educated influentials have a progressive mindset, are connected to the world around them through the media, and online and in-person social networks. They are proactive visionaries, shaping and molding their lives, leaving as little as possible to chance. The Bitter Pill From 9/11, to the financial crisis, to the present, they launched their careers during the most difficult decade since the 1930’s. These careers have been characterized by uncertainty and instability even in the best of times. They and their boomer parents believed the route to economic stability was through higher education. Instead many find themselves underemployed and suffocating under the weight of huge student loans. Connected But Surrounded by negativity, both from the news media, and from some of their increasingly negative friends, who, frustrated by their underemployment, fall into a vicious cycle of rationalization and excuse making, becoming stuck in their routine and headed for a life of mediocrity. Disappointed Maintaining a positive outlook has not always been easy. They have fought longer and harder than their peers in order to maintain a sense of optimism, but are tired of swimming upstream, and are increasingly cynical. They are starting to give in, but still feel guilty about not being stronger. Insight Despite all this, their values persist because their values define them, but they are down to their last drop of optimism Strategy Each individual drop can only do so much. Citi can be the bucket that collects the drops and creates a new wave of hope.
