“At the heart of Gen Z, emotion is everything” – Jordan Schwarzenberger (The LADbible), the youngest speaker ever @ iCEE.fest


Jordan walked on the iCEE.fest 2017 stage like as if he had known it for years. A few jokes for a good opening and then a strong speech about how Generation Z should be handled by the digital industry.

Why Gen Z? It’s simple. Because he’s one of them.

  • Leaving school at 18, Jordan joined VICE as a full time creative, where he’d been interning since the age of 17
  • After 10 months, in March 2016 he joined LADbible Group, brought over to help launch the newly formed creative agency Joyride
  • One year along, he’s leading the creative content for a number of brands, from Amazon and Activision, to Pepsi Co. and Sony – whilst also featuring as a prominent host across the channels.

Before the festival, Jordan talked about his activity at The LADbible. Here’s the full story.

“Gen Z is the future. We’re going to become older, more and more dominant in the market” Jordan Schwarzenberger

Jordan’s speech at iCEE.fest had 3 key points:

  1. Who exactly are Gen Z?
  2. What you need to know about Gen Z?
  3. What does the future hold?

Tech natives, content creators and influencers – these guys were born with an iPhone in hand and have never known a world without technology“, this is how Jordan describe his Gen Z fellows.
