Lisa came to our company as a keynote speaker for a mixed-generation audience with a talk entitled “Improving Communications Across the Generations.” She delivered very insightful concepts of what makes members of different generations unique while disproving common stereotypes. She also provided several eye-opening statistics on the evolving workforce and numerous stories of relatable mishaps and miscommunications stemming from the generational gaps. Based on audience engagement and feedback, she was very well received. Overall, Lisa was a pleasure to work with and extremely accommodating, tailoring specific topics upon our request. We hope to host her again at future events! – Yvonne Wu, Ph.D.: Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson
