Engaging Millennials: Unleashing a Generation in the Workforce

Engaging Millennials: Unleashing a Generation in the Workforce | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

Millennials is a strange word people use – often with some derision – to refer to a younger generation of workers. Many falsely believe they’re different from other generations, and that something might be wrong with them.

Women Becoming Successful Public Speakers, with Barbara Corcoran | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

Barbara Corcoran’s credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and twenty jobs by the time she turned twenty-three. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country when she took a $1000 loan to start The Corcoran Group. As one of the “Sharks” on ABC’s hit TV show Shark Tank, Barbara has ponied up her own money and invested in more than twenty-two businesses, competing to make those deals for all to see, then shepherding them to success. Barbara is also a successful inspirational speaker who travels the world talking about entrepreneurship, women in business and success.

We shared the panel with Sarah Baldock (be-good events), Toby Lewis (Live Group), Juraj Holub (sli.do) and with Alistair Davies (Davies Tanner) who did a great job at moderating the session. We discussed the key aspects that must be taken into account when planning meetings for different generations.

Leading the Way - A diverse range of execs means a brighter future for the industry

Leading the Way - A diverse range of execs means a brighter future for the industry | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

Thanks to the meeting industry’s global breadth, diversity comes naturally—at least, when the view is from 10,000 feet. But break the meeting industry down in segments—especially at the executive level—and you’ll be sure to find areas where all the faces look … similar. Good news though: As awareness of diversity issues has grown, many segments of the industry have made an effort to hire a broader range of people for entry-level jobs and that will eventually trickle-up to more diversity at the executive level.
