Millennials: Stop Talking About Them....

A LIVE Panel Event

So many business leaders are looking for a solution to their “Millennial Problem”, in this event we will flip the conversation to seeing it as a “Millennial Opportunity”.  It’s no longer a conversation on how we do it, but what we need to be doing to engage them and their strengths to help propel our business forward. 

Join us for this great discussion with business leaders who are thinking differently about this topic. You will get ideas and advice on how you can start looking at Millennials for their strengths and leverage them as a competitive advantage in your business.

See information below on each of the panelists, moderated by our very own Jaime Taets, CEO of Keystone Group International.

Keystone is excited to be involved in driving real conversations about this issue that is having an impact for all of our clients and partners. Join us for an event that will educate, inspire and give you ideas on how you can start to make an impact for your own organization.

Featured Non-Profit

During our Live KEYS to Business Growth Series, we will be featuring and donating 100% of the proceeds to a non-profit organization.

UpTurnships is a nonprofit that prepares college students for success through training, coaching and paid internships during college. We are a group of experienced business executives who became concerned about the rising cost of college tuition, a reduction in training and paid internships, and a generation who is suffering the consequences. We believe one solution is to create more opportunities for college students to get the skills, paid work experience and confidence they need during college so they are prepared for the new business reality at graduation.

Our deliverable: UpTurns leave prepared, equipped and experienced with a plan for their future.
