After studying at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Richmond University in London, and finishing her degree in Performance and Film Studies from Loyola University in New Orleans, Amelie Karam recognized that people in her Gen Y age group, known as “Millennials,” view the world differently than do previous generations. The great divide between Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y piqued Amelie’s interest.
Amelie is passionate about bridging generational gaps. She speaks and consults both nationally and internationally about how organizations can better work together to attract and retain the Millennial generation to ultimately bridge generational gaps.
Through her Millennial perspective and rich research, along with her background in theatre, film, health, and wellness, Amelie brings an entertaining and informative voice to this important and highly sought-after topic of bridging generational gaps.

Program 5: IMPROVing Your Public Speaking
Crawling out a 3-year pandemic, it's no wonder some of the social graces and interpersonal skills of your workforce have become rusty. Remote work helped in so many ways, but not with one's interpersonal skills. Yet, in a highly competitive world, excuses are not always tolerated when your staff is not on their "A" game. This talk breaks down the basics of improvisation to help become a more engaging public speaker.
