At the Acorn Network, our events are designed specifically with Generation Y in mind. We have events that they want, when they want it, in locations that are funky and fresh. Be it networking or workshops, we want to show the industry that young people are ready to be part of the future of aged care.
We need to create new ways of thinking and communicating if we are to inspire and engage our young leaders. Talk to us about youth initiatives that fit with your organisation's goals. Acorn Network is currently looking for organisations who are actively seeking new ways to engage young individuals, students, graduates, and emerging leaders.
Mentoring is something we all do. We find someone with more experience or knowledge in a certain area and learn from them. Be it a one-off coffee or in a formalised relationship, talk to Samantha today about career pathways, intergenerational understanding, and engaging younger workers today.
Samantha Bowen (Acorn Network founder) is available for professional speaking opportunities across Australia. She delivers practical and compelling presentations to challenge and educate you and your audience.
