Joe Sutton TEDx talk – Fearlessness & Attitude: A Millennial’s Journey

Joe Sutton was thrilled to participate in the TEDxTurtleCreekWomen Event in Dallas, Texas on May 29, 2015. Joe Sutton shared his journey as a young millennial in corporate America where he has been working at CNN since he was a teenager, and the lessons we all must learn as this large swath of young adults enters the job market. As Baby Boomers retire, not enough Gen X-ers exist to take their place, leaving Joe’s generation to take on more responsibility earlier in their career than any other living generation.


Joe Sutton began his career at age 15 as a volunteer meteorologist at the National Weather Service. A year later, he joined CNN. Presently, he is a news editor at CNN’s National Content Center where he handles wide-ranging editorial duties, which include managing live field crews and overseeing newsgathering in the United States and Canada.
