Mary Ellen Ashcroft will help guide our discussions from her perspective as an ordained Episcopal Priest and her experience teaching as a Ph.D. In English Literature.

May 21st Networking Luncheon: What's Age Got to Do With It? by Pat Campanaro

May Networking Luncheon

What’s Age Got to Do With It?

A Cook County Chamber of Commerce and Cook County Higher Education Event


What should your organization be considering when trying to capitalize on the new demographic shifts occurring in both the work force as well as the consumer ranks?

Join Pat Campanaro on May 21st for a discussion around  generational differences. Over the next 10 years  businesses will need to address a "changing of the guard," as the baby boomers step down from their management roles and Generations X and Millennials  seek to fill their shoes. Ultimately, the changes of the next decade can only be effectively addressed through effective leadership. 

To attract and  keep good employees, you must meet their needs and expectations, and understand what keeps them inspired. Employees' needs and expectation vary from one person to the next. They also vary depending on a variety of factors including the generation of the workers. Join Pat for an interactive discussion on how the workforce will change over the next 10 years.

Thursday, May 21st at 11:30-1pm

Location: Cook County Higher Education 300 West 3rd Street Grand Marais, MN
Cost (Includes Catered Lunch): $10
