Branch Event

IoD Norfolk: Developing the Millennial Generation

24 Jul 2019
The Cosy Club, Norwich

This month's breakfast topic will be "Developing the Millennial Generation"

Millennials are typically known as the generation born in the early 1980s to late 1990s, and there are, well, many definable traits and characteristics attributed to this generational group. Known for their adeptness in technology and familiarity with social media and digital platforms, they are perceived as confident and assertive, yet entitled and narcissistic.

Whatever the stereotypes may be, there is no doubt that there is a strong need to tap into the Millennial pool, and harness the resources and capabilities within.

We will have Simon Barrington, Founder of Forge Leadership Consultancy speaking about his experience with millennials. Forge Leadership recently published the results of a year long research project into the leadership development needs of millennial leaders.

Based on this research and his recently published book - Leading the Millennial Way - Simon Barrington will set out how businesses can attract, retain, develop and motivate the millennial generation.
