The Millennial CEO:
Welcome to Leadership Generation Y Style 

Other generations have spent a lot of time and effort in defining the “Mysterious Millennial”. In the eyes of the experts, Millennial CEO might seem like a hiring mistake, or a mythical beast that can’t exist outside of entrepreneurship. How about breaking through those incorrect assumptions?

Our speaker, Chris Westfall, will share how one Gen Y guy, Daniel Newman, accomplished what few ever can — rising through the ranks to become CEO before his 30th birthday, and gaining a unique perspective on team building, finance, social media and more.  In this program you will learn:

 – How to transcend the (unfair) reputation of Millennials
 – How corporations can turn cross-generational differences into competitive advantage
 – Leadership lessons from the Big Chair – with a Millennial focus and sensibility

The new origins of leadership are here:  the leadership of The Millennial CEO.
