It is called "Intergenerational Engagement," and it is relevant for every industry that has employees and customers. Attendees leave with a new-found appreciation for their intergenerational counterparts and a fresh understanding of what drives customer engagement from every generation.
Dillon is the author of the book "GENERATION EVERYONE! A Guide to Generational Harmony at Work, School, and Home." He likes to refer to his book as...X...Y...Z...BOOM! It's the Boomers and X'ers that think the problem is Millennials and Gen Z while the younger generations that want to blame anyone older for all their challenges. It is just not true, and Dillon is the one to prove that point.

Today, humans are living longer than ever before.
