“Lynne Lancaster worked with our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Executive Council to expertly craft a virtual presentation on Generational Differences in the Workplace. She navigated the nuances of working with different generations, and the value we each bring to the workplace, all while captivating a virtual audience. The engagement via chat, polling questions and the Q&A forum were amazing. Lynne surpassed our expectations!“

"Lynne was just wonderful. She was so generous with her time, and her message resonated loud and clear. I just love it when the audience really engages with a speaker, and that was the case with Lynne. There is just something about the generations topic that really captures everyone’s attention. I guess it’s because we can all see ourselves, and also those we work with!"
