Foundation Events

The First Ascent Foundation brings senior leaders together to share and discuss the latest ideas and solutions around a contemporary leadership subject.

Foundation workshops create the opportunity for new learning and sharing of experiences amongst like-minded people, who are committed to leadership excellence and excited about progress and improvement. Launched in 2009, the Foundation is a not-for-profit initiative and presents several events every year, each themed on a relevant, contemporary aspect of leadership.

At this Foundation Event we will discuss the tensions of multiple generations in the workplace, challenging many of the prevalent stereotypes of millennial workers and focussing instead on developing practical solutions to maximise their potential.

Even today, many people make sweeping generalisations about the “millennial” generation, when we should all know better. No generation is a homogenous group. 

Research has long highlighted that the individualisation of recruitment, induction, development and career pattern are vital to help people in any generation succeed. So perhaps the millennial generation are simply the first group who are making that need obvious, rather than subverting it. 

At this Foundation, we will discuss how leaders and organisations should approach this as a huge opportunity, a catalyst for a better workplace, rather than a threat. We will also discuss scientific evidence for how the changing environment may have influenced the millennial generation’s approach to work.

The event begins with an evening meal on the 14th November, allowing you to meet your fellow attendees in a relaxed environment. A full day workshop follows on the 15th November.
