"Everyone was thrilled to have been able to attend
and will be taking what they have learned and applying it back at
their workplaces. The overwhelming comment was that now they
understand why the different generations respond differently to the
same situation. Some even said that now they may understand their
kids better. It was a great presentation, informative and
educational. This should be something presented in every workplace."
