Our thought leader for today is Dr. Steve Shepard, founder of the Shepard Communications Group. He is a sought-after leader in speaking, writing, photography, and audio and video production, all of which he considered hobbies that he loves doing. These hobbies are tied by his passion as a storyteller who is eager to simplify the complex, to inspire, to challenge the status quo, and to tell a story.

The story he will share today is about generations. We will learn the four generational archetypes, demystify stereotypes such as “millennials are snowflakes,” and know why, despite the seemingly massive changes that happen every generation, this is still an amazing world. 

Let’s dive right in and listen to this crash course on generations!
