Lisa came to our company as a keynote speaker for a mixed-generation audience with a talk entitled “Improving Communications Across the Generations.” She delivered very insightful concepts of what makes members of different generations unique while disproving common stereotypes. She also provided several eye-opening statistics on the evolving workforce and numerous stories of relatable mishaps and miscommunications stemming from the generational gaps.
