International Women's Day Event

Join us on International Women's Day as Holly Ransom, 28 year old CEO at Emergent, shares her personal experiences and professional insight on The Millennial Workforce: Driving intergenerational change.

<p>International Womens Day with Holly Ransom - 12 March</p>

Millennials comprise 37% of the Australian workforce but will occupy near 75% of it by 2025, yet currently 6 out of 10 are disengaged, costing about $20 billion annually. From a consumer standpoint, millennials have a current spending power of US $10 trillion and will control 28% of the world’s financial assets by 2030 as more than $59 trillion worth of wealth transfers between generations.

Holly will share the driving forces behind this emerging generation: what motivates and engages them, and what leads them to make a purchase, become a brand advocate and develop brand or employer loyalty. Importantly, Holly will share her insights on key intergenerational differences and tensions: feedback, expectations, communication and key decision-making factors; allowing leaders and the millennial workforce to understand the subtle but significant changes they can make to drive greater corporate outcomes.
