What can I help you with?

Education

I work deepen teams' understanding of the millennial market from a psychological, emotional perspective.

I evaluate the world through an entirely original lens that considers the psychological and emotional state of youth — the “sociology of emotion” — that specifically looks at the effects of growing up in a digital landscape. My main focus is not on what the latest trends are but why those are the trends. This allows brands to better anticipate future trends, pinpoint the deep wants and needs of their consumer base, and therefore create products, brands, and campaigns that improve consumers' wellbeing. 


WorkShops + IDEATION

I know Millennials and Gen Z. You know your business. Workshops allow us to combine our areas of expertise to generate actionable solutions and innovations. 

Human-centered workshops center around empathy to:

  • Develop an overarching brand strategy by defining a cohesive brand value system
  • Brainstorm blue-sky opportunities around product innovation.

The goal is to catalyze innovative ideas that result in tangible, actionable strategies.

Advising

I use my many years of empirical research on Millennial behaviors to advise Fortune 500 companies, start-ups and independent entrepreneurs on how to connect with Millennials and how to re-think product offerings to better meet the needs of this increasingly powerful consumer segment. 

I push people to view their target consumer through a new lens of empathy and emotional, sociological sophistication.

I work with companies as an advisor for ongoing projects, providing feedback, edits and brainstorming. 

I serve as an expert for companies including BrainReserve, Kantar Futures, Added Value, Gemic and more.

A TASTE OF GENERATION YUM

Absolutely the engine of dining, even fine dining now, across the board, is this generation of seemingly food-obsessed people who are willing to drive an hour and a half for a sweet taco or save up money— that my generation would have spent on cocaine— to go to Le Bernardin.

Who is Eve?

Eve Turow Paul uses her many years of empirical research on Millennials' behaviors to advise Fortune 500 companies, start-ups and independent entrepreneurs on how to connect with Millennials and how to re-think product offerings to better meet the needs of this increasingly powerful consumer segment. 

Eve researches the wants and needs of young people around the world.  She investigates the latest research in psychology, sociology, and anthropology, speaks to thought-leaders and interviews the people of the Millennial and Gen Z generations to gain a better understanding of their anxieties, hopes and desires. Eve then looks at how young people today soothe themselves and fulfill many of their needs through food culture, where young people overwhelmingly spend their discretionary income.

Publications around the world have written about the book, including Bon Appétit, The Atlantic, Civil Eats, Walla in Israel and Slate in France. TV and radio shows around the world—in Spain, Australia, Canada and more—have dedicated airtime to the topic. In Generation Yum, Eve investigates the driving forces behind the Millennial generation's obsession with food.

Mission 

Help businesses and brands strengthen relationships with the Millennial Generation and Generation Z by shaping positive change in food.

Solve for young citizens' wellbeing through a healthy ecosystem of food production, consumption and access.

What is Eve working on?

With rapid changes in technology, the experience of growing up in America has never been more unique. Today, Eve is researching Generation Z—those born after the touchscreen—to learn how technology influences their social lives, how they see their own places in the world, their long-term outlooks and of course, their relationships to food.
