Do you speak millennial?

The Northern Utah Workforce Development Alliance, a collective of regional economic and workforce development professionals will be hosting a Talent Symposium – “Do You Speak Millennial ” (DYSM) on October 4th, 2017 at the historic, Peery’s Egyptian Theater and Ogden Eccles Conference Center. The event will feature Kristen Hadeed (CEO, Ted X and Simon Sinek speaker) as our Keynote Speaker followed by an engaging panel discussion with local business leaders and millennials.

The symposium will provide an energetic platform for industry to gain critical insight on how to: enable environments that appeal to new talent, better leverage millennials and technology, and re-invent your workspace that invites and retains, Gen-Next.
Millennials and others currently engaged in their career anxious to move up the ladder, and those seeking new opportunities can develop and leverage new relationships @ our “Engage and Connect Breakfast”, as well as gleaning key tips and tactics for success from our interactive subject-matter expert panel discussion.

Our Keynote speaker – Kristen Hadeed:
As the young leader (CEO) of Student Maid, a successful cleaning company that hires only students, Kristen has fostered a unique perspective on leadership, organizational culture and engaging the next generation. Her optimistic, energetic and insightful keynotes and workshops unleash potential in others to exceed their wildest expectations. She is an expert in developing and teaching practical, ready-made tools that inspire people to take action.

Over the last seven years, Kristen has challenged the millennial status quo. From her first leadership disaster, which resulted in three-quarters of her workforce quitting on the spot, to handing over day-to-day operations to a leadership team comprised of millennials, Kristen has learned what it takes to create a work environment that brings out the best in people. Student Maid, has grown into a company that has employed hundreds of people and is known for its industry-leading retention rate and its culture of trust, accountability and empowerment. Many of the hundreds of students who have worked with Student Maid have gone on to run their own businesses and receive highly sought-after positions in companies around the world.
