What Clients Say About Cara

  • Over the past few years, Cara Silletto has been a frequent presenter at our company and she has helped us to develop an entirely new paradigm for how we approach employee engagement and retention through an intentional awareness of the Millennial Mindset. She makes a compelling case for why business leaders must embrace the Millennial Mindset and evolve in order to attract and retain a talented workforce.  She also explains the inherent risks associated with refusing to accept this new way of thinking. The approach is both strategic and practical, giving business leaders a clear understanding of why change is so important, what those changes need to be and a practical method for how to take immediate action.
