“I saw Smiley speak about Multigenerational Communications and Management; Smiley offered fascinating observations and lessons to implement around the challenges of working in and leading companies with 5 different generations present, challenging the myths of those different generations, finding the purpose in your work and life, and so much more. Still thinking about his talk 10 hours later. So many good takeaways."

“Smiley was an outstanding opening keynote speaker for us. Smiley's powerful and timely message around The Power of Human Connection and how to foster belonging in our associations and meetings, whether at the office or on Zoom, was a perfect fit. Not only were our event organizers talking about Smiley's presentation throughout the Summit, but Smiley spent the rest of the day and evening connecting with our partners and sponsors. In short, he showed up fully for PCMA and was a delight to work with.”
