  • Introduction

    Companies that successfully unlock the potential of all generations within their business will not only attract and retain future talent, but will also create unique opportunities for innovation, performance and competitive advantage.


    IICF UK invites you to a one-day conference on multigenerational leadership to explore:

    • Why does diversity of talent matter to business? 
    • How can leaders adapt and excel in a more diverse workplace while helping others to grow?
    • How can companies unlock the talent of a multi-generational workforce to produce better results?

    Our aim is to inspire leaders across all generations to make a positive difference.


    Following the conference, we will hold a reception to bestow grants to our six 2017 recipients. We invite all of you to join us to see the difference you've helped to make by supporting IICF.
