In 2015, millennials became the largest generation in the workforce and within ten years, they'll comprise almost 3/4 of it. This talk is ideal for businesses that want to enhance their medium and long term success by ensuring they have strategies in place to attract, engage and retain millennials.

1. Analyse key trends in engagement, demography and technology
2. Unpack "millennials" and give context to the world's largest generation
3. Look at what these factors mean for leadership, brand and the future of work
