Dan will assist us in creating new custom training offerings targeted to Millennials and growing our research on how companies can anticipate the future workforce and workplace. We look forward to integrating his expertise into our offerings.”

“I’m excited to be part of Future Workplace and leading research and new offerings for Millennials. I look forward to engaging with Future Workplace members on how to best prepare for and navigate the shifting workplace,” said Schawbel.

Schawbel will be co-hosting, with Future Workplace Partner Kevin Mulcahy, The Future of Learning & Working conference from March 1st to 2nd at the Microsoft Technology Center in Los Angeles, California.
