MURFREESBORO — Area business and community leaders don’t want to miss MTSU’s half-day conference focused on the impact the Millennial Generation is having and will have on our economy.
The conference — titled “2020 Millennial Game Plan: Maximizing Millennial Entrepreneurship and Innovation” — will be held from 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, at Embassy Suites Murfreesboro, 1200 Conference Center Blvd.
The conference is free to MTSU students, faculty and staff and will cost $30 for others. To register online, go to http://bit.ly/mtsu-millennial. The deadline to register is Tuesday, Oct. 28.
By 2020, the so-called ‘Millennial’ generation — young adults raised in a digital age and motivated by a different set of values from generations past — will make up 40 percent of the workforce. The conference will explore what this means to the regional and national economy and how to maximize the entry of this new generation of workers into the job market.
Featured speakers include Matt Thornhill and John Martin of Virginia-based marketing research company GenerationsMatter and John Boyens of The Boyens Group, a Nashville-based sales, management and training firm.
The conference is being hosted by the Jennings A. Jones Chair of Excellence in Private Enterprise as well as the Jennings A. Jones College of Business. For more information about the Jones College of Business, go to http://www.mtsu.edu/business/.
