Rise of the Millennials


Is Your Business Ready for the Future?

Maintain your Competitive Edge

by joining


Are You Getting Your Business Ready?  

By 2020, Millennials (GenY) will make up half of the global workforce, bringing profound changes to the way businesses are managed. Executives are already facing challenges to retain GenY managers, who have different values and views on how the success of a business should be measured. Staff attrition poses a high risk to profits, as Millennials work differently: they are mobile, keen on challenges and eager to develop their leadership abilities early on.

How long GenY managers in their early 30s will stay with a company largely depends on the values and skills of the executives to engage their motivation and retain their talent. The need for a change in business culture is urgent, and the margins for error are small. 

Companies who fail to change their culture at work face a high risk of losing out in competition and becoming obsolete.

The Challenge starts at the Top

Many companies are experiencing stagnation in their performance due to poor cross-generational collaboration, loss of talent, and uncertain succession. The challenge for businesses today is to start projects that change the culture and work differently with GenY managers, and find new ways to bring out the best in Millennials.
If this is YOUR company’s challenge too, then join the GenY LEAD Bali Retreat 2017. Work with us to lead from the Top and design Change Projects in your businesses that will double your competitiveness and unleash a wave of cross-generational collaboration in your workplaces.  This cultural change starts with you.

Become a company of first choice for Millennials. Investing in the leadership of GenY managers will double your company’s competitive edge - It’s Your Choice!

The Retreat is about Your Success!

Success in any organization is the success in building chemistry between people.
— Robert Kwan

Why is the retreat held in Bali?

Bali has been called the island of the gods and the dawn of the world. Visitors are inspired by the friendly people, their rich culture, and the beautiful nature. You can also learn from its unique philosophy for life called Tri Hita Karana (three sources of wellbeing). Ubud is a wonderful place for exploring your leadership transformation.
