Chamber's economic summit discusses issue of millenials in workplace
Event set for East Hill Church on Wednesday, Sept. 28 -
The Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce is attempting to answer one of the most pressing questions in the modern workplace during its Economic Summit how to deal with millennials.
The summit, called Millennials, Management and Me, will be from 7 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the East Hill Church Youth Center on Northwest 5th Street.
To take on the topic, the chamber has invited nationally recognized keynote speaker and author Mike Hourigan, a veteran leadership consultant and productivity expert who is sought after and hired by some of the top companies in the country, including McDonalds, Harley-Davidson, Disney, General Electric, Marriott, Aetna, ExxonMobil and Kaiser Permanente.
Hourigan will dive into how millennials should behave on the job, as well as how to work alongside them, sell to them and rely on them. Chamber leaders say the event promises to be an exhilarating, hilariously exasperating and engaging look into millennials.
There is also time set aside for eating and networking.
The cost to attend the summit is $70 for chamber members and $95 for non-members. Breakfast is included.
