Three Things for EO Nashville This Week

1. August House Parties
The Sutler Saloon, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
We will be hosting 4 Cocktail Parties in August- one for each House! But, these will be more than just your typical cocktail party! As you’ve likely heard, we really want to honor the fact that EO members are in different “lifecycles.” During your Cocktail Party, we will be dividing you into different life cycle groups so you’ll have the opportunity to talk with those facing the same challenges – and also look to those who’ve already made it to the other side! We want you all to get beyond just your forum and benefit from the experience of a larger group of EO members.

2. Jason Dorsey – Crossing the Generational Divide
September 20, 2018, 7:30am-9:30am, The Listening Room Café, 618 4th Ave South
As entrepreneurs, we work in a time of unprecedented generational challenge. Four generations in our workforce. Five generations in the marketplace. Making matters worse, there is a tremendous amount of false information about generational differences.
What we know for a fact: Strategies that work for one generation can be a complete turn-off for others. This costly generational divide makes your role more difficult and important than ever. In this powerful presentation, bestselling author Jason Dorsey reveals brand new generational truths and step-by-step solutions you can use immediately. He’ll show you exactly how to solve the cross-generation communication, recruiting, retention and innovation challenge. These insights will drive immediate ROI for you and your business. This is also a great event opportunity for your Second-In-Command or leadership team!
Jason has appeared on 200 TV shows, received over 1,000 standing ovations, and is a passionate advocate for helping EO members to drive fast growth. He’s the most sought-after Millennials and Gen Z researcher and speaker. Learn more about his Center’s research at GenHQ.com
“Generational expert Jason Dorsey has studied the strange new species known as Gen Z (humans born 2000 to present).  I guarantee you that his insight into how they see the world will have a lasting impact on both your business and your family.” – Arnie Malham, Learning Co-chair REGISTER NOW
