Spotlight on:

Curt Steinhorst
SNIC Speaker and Generational Expert

Give us a sneak peek about what you have planned for your conference session! What can attendees expect?
The exciting thing about generations is that we all experience them - for better and worse - everyday. What I'm going to do is provide a lens to help you understand how they impact the way we work and to help create a framework for you to better communicate and interact across the generational divide.

In your opinion, what are the most important millennial trends and issues that impact the workplace?
We will cover a few trends, but the number one trend people often aren't aware of is parenting. The way that we are raised by our parents is the single greatest indicator of how we will act in the workplace.

Describe a little bit about your background.
My passion has always been for understanding how we communicate. I got started in middle school because of a wonderful teacher who convinced me to try speech and debate when I was sure I was going to be a professional athlete (unfortunately 8th grade was my athletic peak). After graduating from Texas A&M University, I move from representing people to coaching them on speaking. A few years ago I joined The Center for Generational Kinetics and the rest is history. I have the coolest job in the world.

What are you most excited about for the conference?
The food of course. Actually, my wife has been very involved in this exact issue and it is really exciting for me to get to take part in something where my professional work connects to something that is personal to me (more on this at the session!).
