How can you make a living doing work that's deeply meaningful to you? How can you get paid for who you are? How can you build a company that makes you (and your employees) excited to wake up in the morning? Join author Adam Smiley Poswolsky for a discussion on building a purpose-driven company in the 21st century. Mr. Poswolsky's book, The Quarter-Life Breakthrough: A Guide for Millennials to Find Meaningful Work, shares the stories of many twenty- (and thirty-) somethings who are discovering how to work with purpose. Despite struggling with debt, recession, and the jobs crisis, millennials (who will account for 75% of the workforce in 2025) are not motivated by money. Rather, they are driven to make the world more compassionate, innovative, and sustainable. Studies show that not only millennials, but EVERYONE, is looking for purpose and meaning in the workplace. This participatory breakout session will explore how you can increase your fulfillment inside and outside of the workplace, by leading with purpose and prioritizing social impact. We'll discuss how to attract, retain, and empower the talent of the future, and how to create a better world through your work.
