Event Description:
Generation Translation: Tools for Bridging the Gap

Business professionals are "increasingly grappling with generational differences in their work forces. Problems can arise from differing mindsets and communication styles of workers born in different eras. The frictions may be aggravated by new technology and work patterns that mix workers of different ages in ever-changing teams."

Kent Hojem, CEO of the Washington State Fair, will provide you with insights to help every member of your team demonstrate generational flexibility, promote enhanced communications and quickly bridge a generation gap.

As part of the discussion, Kent Hojem will have the following representatives from each generation as panelists that will speak to the varying points of view and personal business experiences:

Traditionalist: Former Washington State Fair Manager, Bob Carlson
Baby Boomer: Newell Hunt Furniture Store Owner, Arla Gustafson
Generation X: Red Canoe Credit Union Community Development Officer, Bridget O'Conner
Millenial: Anthem Coffee Owner and Business Coach, Bryan Reynolds
Generation Z: Emerald Ridge High School Senior, Crystal Choi

Aveda Owners, DeAnna Largent, Nikki Zuraff, and Mandie Jackola are a successful representation of three generations of one family working together to both build and run a company. They will be speaking directly to how they overcome generational differences to be a leader in their industry.
