The Story of Miley the Millennial

Sessions Unplugged

Experience an Unconference style session – a loosely structured gathering that allows organic, free-flowing discussions and interactive exercises where you can engage in informal exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Interactive exhibition – walk around the space, discovering objects that tell stories about the life of Miley the Millennial. Uncover the answers to questions like “How does she see the world?” and “What does she want out of work and life?”.

Connect with the person next to you to debate though-provoking questions like “Who do I know that is similar at work?” and “What does this mean for my organization?”. Showcasing a true story, this exhibition brings a human touch to the endless powerpoint decks of social statistics and generation generalizations.
