Business mentor, Shevonne Joyce will explore millennial ambition in the corporate world as part of a panel at the Women World Changers one-day leadership summit in Sydney on 11 October. Hosted by The Growth Faculty, Women World Changers addresses diversity, talent, culture and economics and is headlined by Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama and Australia’s longest serving Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick.

Ms Joyce will be joined by Creative Producer and Storyteller, Alia Gabres, for a panel discussion about millennial ambition and harnessing it for growth. Understanding millennials is integral to companies across numerous industries given this hyper-connected, tech savvy generation will make up 75 per cent of the workforce by 2030.

“Millennials present a unique opportunity to change business as we know it. It’s an opportunity that will be fully realised by progressive business leaders who are prepared to both nurture and empower this new generation of world changers,” said Ms Joyce.

“Doing so will take courage to embrace the possibility that comes along with letting go of what we’ve always known to face what is yet to be.”

Ms Joyce added: “Leading millennials in the modern business world is about shifting our focus from what they can do for us to how we can empower and develop them to apply their skills and talents towards the greater purpose at hand – not to get the best out of them, but rather to help them be their best. The return on investment for businesses who get this right will be huge.”

Held in both Melbourne and Sydney, Women World Changers is attended by Australia’s top business executives, government and community leaders, both male and female. The leadership summit will cover the most critical leadership requirements for success in leading and managing Australia’s workforce of the future.
