About Hannah Williams

Hannah Williams started her business career at the age of 12 when, on a weekly trip with her father to collect rents for his properties, he asked her to take a phone call from someone who had a house for sale. Although she fumbled through the call, within weeks they owned the property. She went to college at the age of 14 and graduated with a degree in international business at 18. Now, as a 23-year-old Gen Z’r, she has consulted with a wide range of businesses — from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies — and is on a mission to help leaders leverage Gen Z talent as a competitive advantage. Her soon-to-be-published book, A Leader’s Guide to Unlocking Gen Z, provides practical tools you can implement to connect with and lead Gen Z effectively. You can learn more about Hannah at her website where you’ll also find a free “pulse check assessment.” Use this quick gauge to determine where you need to focus your recruitment efforts: hannahgwilliams.com/mylegacy
