  • I appreciate that Cara and her trainers get right down to business. A lot of webinars I attend are full of “fluff,” but this was very practical and content-heavy.

    What struck me most about Cara’s presentation was the practicality and actionability of her tips and strategies. She not only imparts valuable insights but also generously shares her wealth of knowledge. I wholeheartedly recommend Cara as both a speaker and a consultant.

  • Over the years, Cara has transformed the mindset of our members, many of whom were a bit “set” in their ways (not surprising for concrete people!). Our leaders now realize staff aren’t just leaving for “a buck more an hour,” and that they must make the necessary changes to become more attractive employers.

    Together, she and I are on a mission to make the concrete industry an employer of choice, not just a job!

  • 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.
