As cited by recent City Club speakers Governor John Hickenlooper and CEO of Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation Tom Clark, more young professionals comprising “Gen-Y,” also called the  Millennial Generation, have moved to Colorado over the last decade than any other metropolitan area in the United States. That migration of these new groups will have a tremendous impact on the future of Colorado, its schools, businesses, politics, and institutions. How will the influx of the younger generation of workers mesh with baby boomers of management? How can Colorado’s businesses successfully navigate this generational clash? Dena Wyatt and Mollie Winter co-present on this informative and enlightening subject. Once you understand the "who?" and the "why?" of the generational gap, hear the "how?" of utilizing this workforce successfully.


President and founder of Marketing Evolutions, Dena is a "gen-xer" by birth and a baby boomer at heart. She has a B.A. in Speech Communication from the University of Denver. Dena works with individuals, companies and associations to create a stronger personal presence and message through improved communications with clients that build trust and yields long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. She is a former Dale Carnegie instructor and trainer and is past president of Society for Marketing Professional Services, Colorado Chapter and served on the Board of Directors for seven years.


A "millennial," Mollie Winter graduated from Kansas State University in 2012 and quickly moved out to Denver.  She is a marketing coordinator and social media manager for Saunders Construction, and like any self-respecting millennial, she thrives on technology and innovative thought.
