SEPC Announces Lear As Educational Session Speaker

Kim Lear

The Southeast Produce Council has announced another SEPC University Educational Session to be held during Southern Exposure in March, led by Led by Kim Lear, Inlay Insights founder and content director. 

“Prepare for the Future: Building the Next Generation of Leaders” will give a closer look into the value that each generation brings to the workforce and how leaders can motivate and grow a new generation of future leaders.

Lear is a writer and researcher who explores how emerging trends impact the future of the workforce and marketplace. She is known for her ability to use a mix of data, storytelling, humor and actionable takeaways to discuss the trends that most impact the bottom line of organizations.

Study after study has shown us that multigenerational teams outperform more homogeneous groups by almost every measure. More seasoned employees offer wisdom and expertise while those in younger generations offer a different lens of innovative perspective. While the advantages are numerous, leading multigenerational teams is easier said than done. Today’s teams are often plagued by issues regarding everything from work ethic and retention to succession and fairness.

“This session brings our 2021 theme of Produce Powered by People and 2022 theme of The Next Generation of Superheroes full circle,” said SEPC Education Co-Chair Kristin Yerecic Scott. “We started by highlighting attributes of each generation in a panel at Southern Exposure 2021, discussed hiring and retaining the workforce at Southern Innovations 2021 and now we will focus on developing the next generation of leaders at Southern Exposure 2022.”

Through cutting edge research and category leading case studies, Lear will share numerous tools and concepts participants can take back to the workplace to help build their teams for the future. This session will take place March 4 at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. Select sessions while registering to secure a seat.
