Greater Akron Chamber Presents The Morning Buzz on June 10


Greater Akron—The Morning Buzz is a monthly speaker breakfast series, which aims to connect small- and medium-sized businesses by facilitating the exchange of ideas and strategies for business growth and success. On Friday, June 10, 2016, join us to hear Deborah Easton, an internationally-known trainer and coach for over thirty years and owner of Easton Consulting, present on “Generations in the Workplace.”
Have you ever wondered why a person of another generation did something you would never think of doing?  Have you received customer service from another generation and didn’t feel it was actually service?  Does your definition of work ethic seem to clash with others’ definitions?

If you have experienced a clash of generations, you won’t want to miss this humorous and enlightening explanation of the “biases of experience” that create these misunderstandings.  Deborah Easton’s portrayals of each generation’s point of view provide insights and subtleties that other generational training programs do not offer.

Deborah has presented the training program “Generations in the Workplace” to hundreds of audiences of varying industries including health care, manufacturing, banking, insurance, social services, technology and numerous professional organizations.  The program’s emphasis is the universal need of all generations for respect, although each generation defines respect in its own way.  Her clients include: FirstEnergy, Sterling Jewelers, Time Warner Cable, State Farm Insurance, NASA Glenn Research Center, The Cleveland Clinic, Summa Health Systems, Honeywell, MTD Products, and the Ohio Bankers Association.

Deborah has a Master’s Degree in Rhetoric and Communication.  From 1981-1991, she taught at Kent State University in the Graduate School of Management and the School of Communication Studies, from whom she received the 2012 Distinguished Alumni Award for her contributions to the field of communication.

Please join us for a presentation of this topic like you have never seen before!  The Morning Buzz will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Akron, 1307 E. Market St., Akron, Ohio 44305.  Business connections, registration, and breakfast begin at 7:30 a.m., and the program will be held from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.  The cost is $20 for members, $40 for non-members and includes a breakfast buffet.  To make a reservation, call the Greater Akron Chamber at (330) 376-5550 or register on-line at www.greaterakronchamber.org.  RSVP by noon on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.
