Too often the headlines for strategy lead to nothing more than tactics and too often so-called strategists can’t even define strategy. Why is strategy so difficult and why is it such a challenge to get right? The first step to any successful communications or marketing program – traditional, digital, mobile or social – is to set the strategy. Jenny offers a practical three-step approach to defining a strategy that allows a brand to be nimble and flexible to realities, yet focused on the stated goals.

Want to get a better idea for our workshops? Here are a couple of workshops delivered recently – both focused on the multi-generational issues. 


Generations at Work

With four generations now in the workforce – Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials – organizations are challenged to help teams better understand each other and work to each other’s advantages. With increasing job shifts and changes, retaining talent at every level and position opens up competitive advantages for longer-term success. A recognized expert on generational issues, CloudSpark’s Jenny Schmitt brings research-based wit, wisdom, and actionable information to implement now.

As of 2015, Gen X and Millennials – who hold many nontraditional work expectations – now make up a majority of the U.S. workforce.

Managing Millennials

Get beyond the Buzzfeed headlines and Mashable’s top tips, and gain the insights you need to better recruit, retain, and engage the largest generation in U.S. history. Millennials, often incorrectly called Generation Y, are the most diverse, most educated, and most technologically adept generation in our history. In this fast-paced workshop, you and your team will gain insights into the values, attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs of this oft-misunderstood, multitalented generation.
