Thank you for delivering such an outstanding presentation on “Leading and Managing a Multigenerational Workforce” at the Talent Management Asia Summit.
I think the group specifically appreciated that you took the time to illustrate certain concepts in more detail and also provided plenty of references for further reading.
IQPC always welcomes when you are able to share your knowledge at our events and one of the main reasons that we keep inviting you to participate is that your frank but humorous style of presentation is always highly appreciated by our diverse conference audiences.
It was one of the highlights of the event and I look forward to working with you again.
