Baton Rouge, LA (August 2, 2016) – The Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) today announced that Anne Donovan will serve as guest speaker at its September 13 Signature Speaker event sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Taylor Porter. Donovan is the U.S. Human Capital Transformation Leader for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the world’s largest professional services firm.
“Anne is a nationally recognized expert in understanding the next generation of workers,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of BRAC. “Her professional expertise, in addition to PwC’s research on the subject, will provide attendees a deeper understanding of ever-changing workplace dynamics as a result of generational differences and the cultural changes they necessitate.”

A partnership with the University of Southern California and the London Business School, PwC’s unprecedented two-year global generational study involved people from different generations, career stages and cultural backgrounds. Her presentation will focus on workplace dynamics, different communication styles, best techniques for motivating people, and practical and actionable tips for understanding the next generation of workers.
