What we will cover

Hustling // Say YES to opportunities and Hustle like there is no tomorrow. 

generationYOU will kick off with an informal chat with a massive local legend. This is a great opportunity to get behind the scenes with someone who is not only successful in their field but who wants to help you to hustle in the same way, to reach your goals!

Networking // Turn strangers into connections & friends into raving fans

Whilst there is an art to networking, the challenge is in maintaining and growing relationships that matter. Irrespective of whether you are a student, graduate, first jobber or school leaver, being able to leverage your connections is a skill that will benefit you for life.

Enterprise Skills // Put yourself in the best position to succeed with these 3 critical skills

Securing a job isn’t enough anymore. Success comes from making yourself valuable, solving problems, being efficient and generating results (even in part time roles). To do this, your skills’ toolbox needs to be strong in areas such leadership, emotional intelligence and critical thinking.

Defining a Career // Integrate work into your extraordinary life

We spend our school years and early 20s striving to build foundations for our ‘ideal job’ – yet most of us are unsure of what we actually want to do with our lives. This session will help us ask some tough questions – around what a career really is.

Recruitment Myth Busting // 40 minutes of constant tips to help you get the job you really want! Career corner presented by Ashurst

Whether you are looking for your first job, a part time role, internship or tips to progress onto your second role, this session is all about employability – practical advice to help you secure your next role.

Personal Branding // Figure out who you are and how to tell the world

Your personal brand is the most powerful asset that you will carry with you throughout your life. It often precedes you and is certainly what people will remember. Learn how to use strategy, consistency and planning to build YOUR legacy.

The future of work // Be prepared for the workplace of tomorrow

The current understanding of ‘work’ as we know it is in flux. Gone are the days of two or three jobs for life, a career ladder and a 9-5. Understanding current and future work patterns will enable you to be flexible, recognize opportunities and develop the appropriate skills to navigate your work life.

FAQs

Who is generationYOU?

Over the past 3 years, generationYOU has created a thriving community of millennials: students, graduates, young professionals, school leavers and dreamers, with one thing in common >> a strong desire to unleash their potential at work (and in life)!

 

Our role is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge from the experienced (think managers, mentors and entrepreneurs) with Australia’s youth.

 

We do this through original content, events & conferences, an online digital program and also a hands-on training program. The focus is on employability, entrepreneurship, skills development and career management which will not only benefit young adults themselves, but also their employers and communities.

What is generationYOU Live?

Core to the generationYOU brand are our one day events that run in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. These events give attendees the opportunity to engage with plenty of local legends who will be sharing their experience, advice and learnings.

 

Attendees have the opportunity to chat with some of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs; question senior HR managers on job applications; understand what the future of work will look like; put some awesome networking tips into practice and learn more about how to develop critical skills like communication, emotional intelligence and leadership.

Who is behind generationYOU?

generationYOU was co-founded by Nadine Zrinzo and Lisa Renneisen – two small business owners who simply got fed up of constantly hearing about the stereotypes that Millennials are struggling with (and decided to do something about it).

 

Whilst Lisa is a digital marketing ninja, Nadine’s strength lies in designing awesome live learning experiences. Both have worked with and in youth organisations, mentor a number of students each year, and though they try – are terrible surfers.

 

You can read more about the generationYOU team here.

Is generationYOU a not for profit organisation?

generationYOU is a social enterprise i.e. it is run with the primary aim of helping young people (17-25) unleash their potential, whatever that may be. All the generationYOU activities and projects are designed to encourage as many youth as possible to benefit on the learning offered.

 

We do not consider wealth or funds as a barrier to participation and hence are keen to work with not for profits to encourage more disadvantaged youth to benefit.
