Next Generation-NOW to Discuss Generational Transitions in First Huddle
August 16, 2012,
ROSEVILLE, Calif.-Coming off the success of their Las Vegas Market Chatter Over Cocktails, the Next Generation-NOW group will host its first online NGN Huddle on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 11 a.m. PDT.
The first NGN Huddle, Generation2Generation will offer advice from two successful retail stores on how they are handling the generational transition. Family-business owners from Gates Home Furnishings, Grants Pass, Ore., and Coconis Furniture, South Zanesville, Ohio will be on hand to answer questions provided by the Next Generation-NOW membership. Both stores currently have two generations working side-by-side.
Utilizing the next generation's tech-savviness, the NGN Huddle will be conducted through Google Hangouts and social media. To attend, members simply create a profile on the Next Generation-NOW social site at social.ngnow.org, log-in and then they can start watching the panel discussion live. To ask questions, members simply post to the Social page's wall, or Tweet @ngnow on Twitter.
