Millenials Incorporated: Our Multi-Generational Workforce, Presented by Andrea Hershatter
Members of every generation are alternately perplexed, amazed and confused by the approaches and work place behaviors of the generations that precede and follow them. We will examine some of the propensities that typify members of the GenX and Millenial generations and discuss what companies are or could be doing to best support and enhance the effectiveness of its multi-generational workforce.

Art of the Possible, Presented by Benn Konsynski
Technologies change the limits of the possible. It is up to commerce and society to determine the direction of the desirable. Technologies change the World of Can. Imagination, values and choice influence the World of Should. Together, they set the pace for transformation of commerce and society.

The Global Economic Outlook: from Brexit to Trumponomics and Beyond, Presented by Jeff Rosensweig
Business has always been impacted by the vagaries of the global economy. Recently, the economy itself has been buffeted by vagaries of politics. This talk will illustrate some of the linkages and analyze the global economic outlook and its implications.
