These presentations will entertain and educate, and will challenge participants to think like a millennial (if you dare).
Don't try to fleece us
Be honest. Marketing tactics and ploys don’t work on millennials. We have been fleeced before and we know all the signs. This presentation gives insights to what honesty means to millennials and what it means for your organization.
We are all famous
With social media we all have the opportunity to be self-celebrities. Because millennials were early adopters of social media, and because we started using social media in our developmental years, this has a considerable impact on your organization.
A smaller attention span
Brain development matters. Even though we are in early stages of truly understanding the brain, we do know that brain development impacts certain behaviors, and that millennial behaviors revolve around shorter attention spans. Learn why this should be a talking point at your organization.
The American Dream is alive, kinda
Did you know that most millennials want the American Dream of home homeownership, marriage and a family? The difference is how and why we get those things. Let’s explore this in an entertaining journey about the millennial American Dream.
Work to live, live to work
It’s true. We saw our parents live to work, and we saw the culture become increasingly unhappy. Now as millennials are entering the serious workforce (not just seasonal jobs), learn why we want to work to live. And, let’s explore what employment tactics can actually get us to live to work.
Not all millennials are equal. Let’s explore the different millennial categories and how you can appeal to all sub-sets.
Why should I hire a millennial anyways?
Millennials can do pretty much anything…quicker. We were all but forced to participate in sports, drama, music, mock United Nations, debate club, chess club and underwater basket weaving. Those experiences molded are ability to learn just about anything very quickly. That translates to an innovative and efficient workforce.
In our shoes (re-enactment)
These re-enactments are stories based on the lives of real millennials. The presenter will portray first-person stories that illuminate why millennials think the way they do about products, employment and life. These entertaining talks will walk you through familiar historical events from a point of view you may have not considered. Prepare yourself for new insights in this intense performance.
