I had the pleasure and privilege of speaking on the panel, Bridging the Generation Gap, at the Next Generation of Government Summit yesterday with Govloop’s Andy Krzmarzick and friend and Baby Boomer colleague Sunny Hester, Dir. of Human Capital HHS. I have to say, when Andy asked the audience to raise their hands if they were Gen Y and almost half the hands went up, and then the other half went up for Gen X, (only 2 Baby Boomers) I knew this was going to be a fun and engaging event! It was very interesting speaking about cross generational engagement and communication with a Gen Y focus to an audience that was highly Gen Y/X, as usually the audience is much more Baby Boomer. I also stuck around to catch up with some old friends and to mingle
(yes, love those mingle sticks) with some new folks. I was excited to receive positive feedback on the session and I’ve had some great follow on conversations. I wish we had some more time as a panel to get insights and opinions directly from the audience! If you have any and we didn’t get a chance to connect – feel free to share here or via email.
The learning continues all around!
My biggest learning from NGG10: Government is in good hands!
This event had the highest energy level of any I can recall attending in a long time, both from the speakers and the attendees! The next generation of government truly is a group of passionate, talented, motivated, engaged, ambitions individuals who are looking to make a difference – my thanks!
Thanks to Govloop for organizing a great event!
