Reach Foundation Breakfast Review: ‘The Millennials’

By Business

The Reach Foundation hosted a breakfast on the 19th of November. The breakfast was located at Deloitte on Bourke Street.

The sit down breakfast was held from 7.30am to 9.00am. It was a small intimate breakfast which allowed all attendees to get to know everyone there and hear what we all had to say.

The attendees consisted of team members from Reach, including the CEO and Reach facilitators and various other small businesses.

The Reach Foundation supports young people to get the most out of life. Their mission is to encourage teenagers to believe they can achieve anything. Highlighting the issues and obstacles that a young person, aged 13-20 face daily.

The breakfast was run similar to a workshop in which the facilitator encouraged open and honest discussions.  One main focus of discussion was the next generation of leaders: the Millennials.
Millennials make up 30% of the workplace in Australia. We discussed millennials in the workplace, how to motivate millennials and how to understand their generational characteristics.

The facilitators and CEO also discussed the strategic plan over the next 4 years for the Reach Foundation. As well as the workshops and retreats the Reach Foundation host frequently.

The breakfast was a good selection of yoghurt and granola compotes, fruit, croissants, muffins as well as a choice of hot beverage.
