Lock Haven University’s Stephen Poorman College of Business, Information Systems, and Human Services and the LHU Business Hall of Fame held their 2nd annual Leadership Symposium on Friday, March 24th. The event was sponsored by PSECU. LHU welcomed keynote speaker Dennis Gilbert, CSP, who spoke to attendees about the challenges and opportunities inherent in today’s multigenerational workforce. Through an interactive presentation Gilbert defined generational boundaries and offered solutions for incorporating the unique expectations and talents each generation offers.
Gilbert’s expertise stems from more than ten years as a business consultant, speaker, and corporate trainer, but also from executive management success in the technology sector, having led a business unit to achieve annual sales in excess of $34 million. Gilbert has also worked in academia, serving as the managing director of a business unit that provided workforce training and continuing education for both individuals and entire organizations. Today, he is the President of Appreciative Strategies, LLC, a business he founded in 2006.
Following Gilbert’s presentation a panel of experts addressed questions about the ways managing multiple generations effects their business. Panelists included: Margery Krevsky Dosey, President & CEO of Productions Plus-The Talent Shop; Richard Winter, VP Of Operations & General Manager of Forest Park Cemeteries; and Christopher Rhine, University Development Manager for PSECU.
