PLD Winter Mini-Conference Keynote
Come Together: Generational Differences and How to Effectively Work with Someone Much Older or Younger Than You
Speaker: Kenja Purkey
9:00 AM - 12:00 Noon
Matures. Boomers. Gen X. Gen Y. Or are they called Millennials? Why don’t Boomers realize there’s more to life than work? And why don’t Millennials realize that their 5:00 pm yoga class does not take precedence over a deadline? These questions are being asked and grumbled about in every office everywhere in the country. This three hour interactive session focuses on key generational differences and how you can work effectively with someone much older or younger than you—and enjoy it!
