The program will highlight successful strategies for both young professionals and managers to work across generational boundaries and harness the potential and creativity of workers of all ages.
The agenda will include discussions on:
• Why should I change for them?
• Is loyalty dead?
• Mentor, boss or babysitter?

• Social media: friend or foe?
