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.

What Clients Say About Leah

I cannot rave enough about this session. In our office, we have Baby Boomers, Gen X-ers, and Millennials. It was GREAT to hear about our different mindsets in the workplace, why they are the way they are, and how we can bridge that gap in communication. I think that every single person can benefit from this session.
~ Tourism Professional, Kentucky Travel Industry Association

Leah and her program were such high quality – well worth being out of my department for 4 hours! This should be the standard for future programming.
~ Hospital Manager, Baptist Health Floyd Hospital

If you like Cara Silletto, you’ll love her speaking partner Leah Brown! We’ve had the pleasure of booking both, and they were lively, entertaining, and most importantly, informative. They each did a fantastic job and we had overwhelmingly positive feedback for both sessions. ~ Cliff Reid, WorkOne
