Join us for a Lunch & Learn hosted by the Cleveland Rotary at Windows on the River with speaker Kathryn Bryan. 

Every generation has historically always had a negative bias towards incoming generations, but now with technology and information at our finger tips it seems like millennials are getting a bad rap. Well truth is they kind-of are, but not more than previous generations, the word just spreads faster and wider now. The goals of the lunch & learn is to cover the following:

  • Allow older generations to better understand millennials
  • Allow millennials to understand older generations
  • Help all generations communicate more effectively with some simple tricks and tips.
  • Make sure everyone takes away
    • factual knowledge about the history of millennials, Generation X, and Generation Y
    • problems we are seeing today in businesses
    • how technology influences businesses and millennials' role
    • how to develop innovative ideas to grow, sustain, and transition businesses to be successful by retaining good talent along the way
