Why you should attend:

Organizations don’t thrive without people.  Those leading organizations must be in the business of learning people and their characteristics.  In this presentation, discover the characteristics, values, motivations and communications styles of generations, including Boomer, Millennials and Gen X.  Participants will walk away with an understanding of how generations influence our lives and the workplace and learn strategies to boost sales and increase revenue from the generational perspective.
