The research on Millennials shows that they want to be successful and make a good living, but they also want to work for a company that is doing good work within the community and/or helping make the world a better place. They also want to have the same feeling of fulfillment in their own jobs and in their own roles.  “NetWeaving”, a decade-old concept, known globally as the business version of Pay It Forward, has been shown to be exactly what Millennials are looking for.  This session will help companies trying to attract, inspire and retain Millennials:

•         Create the kind of culture and environment in which Millennials love to work.

•         Tear down walls and silos, by creating a more collaborative culture where employees are looking for ways to help each other.

•         Develop and promote new business (a requirement more and more companies expect) to achieve that through learning a win-win process.

Bob Littell


Bob Littell, based in Atlanta and creator of the “NetWeaving” concept has written three books on the subject which is best characterized as a Golden Rule and Pay It Forward form of networking.

His 2nd book, “The Heart and Art of NetWeaving” is printed by Xerox so all proceeds go to charity. NetWeaving is consistent with other cultures around the world and has become a global phenomenon, as you can see if you ‘Google’ the word.

Bob explains why in the long-run, and often much sooner, your NetWeaving efforts and activities will always outperform those of more traditional and more self-centered networking.

People consistently comment what they like best about his talks is how they come away having learned specific skill sets and action steps which they can immediately apply to their business and personal lives.
