Savannah Wedding Professionals and Telfair Museums present the lecture “Does This Trophy Make Me Look Like A Narcissist? Understanding the Millennial Generation and Your Business” on Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. at the Jepson Center in the Neises Auditorium. The presentation will explore the impact of the millennial generation, as customers and employees, on business. Millennials, or ‘trophy kids,’ grew up during a time when giving awards was encouraged for all participation instead of being limited to recognizing excellence as in previous generations. The event is open to the public. Cost is free for Savannah Wedding Professional members and $10 for nonmembers. Tickets will be sold at the door.
The speaker is Liene Stevens, a consultant who studies business and social behavior for the lifestyle and wedding industries. Her research on the millennial generation is taught as part of the MBA curriculum at two universities and she has been featured in over 100 media outlets, including The New York Times, Forbes, CNN and The Wall Street Journal. Stevens is the author of “Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace: Marketing Your Wedding Business in Today’s World.”
