Generation Differences in the Workplace: Let's Work Together
Featuring Alan Cabelly, Ph.D., Professor of Human Resource Management
Do you wonder how they REALLY think? Why aren’t they as committed as you? Are you just too old (or too young)? Why don't they get it? The truth is they think the same thing about you. Workers change as they mature, and the generations themselves exhibit some interesting differences between them. The generation gap is as old as mankind. This session will focus on both the similarities and the differences between us, and identify tools to improve our working relationships.
Crafts meet Technology
Featuring Garett Croft Stenson ’04, School of Business Administration Alumnus, CEO and Creative Director db clay

Join Garett as he shares with you his journey of making an business idea into a successful reality.
