Please plan to join a multi-generation panel assembled to rival
the popular Mythbusters TV series when it comes to testing popular conceptions
– and misconceptions. In the TV series,
the celebrity co-hosts set out to test popular beliefs, Internet rumors or

workforce. This interactive experience

millennials are going to take responsibility for making decisions, allocating
resources and getting results - whether they're ready or not. And, studies indicate this generation is very
different from the others.
