Seminar Title / ناونیشانی بابەت / عنوان الندوة :
Understanding Generation Z
Abstract / پوختە / الملخص :
Generation Z is the most significant generational shift so far. They are different to what has come before, and for good reason. The challenges they have inherited are incredibly difficult, but they are also well placed to overcome them.
Former secondary school headteacher and Gen Z expert Alex Atherton will identify their key characteristics, and the actions which leaders and organisations can take not only to survive but ensure future prosperity. This includes for educators who need to rethink the education system to ensure it remains relevant and engaging.
