Description: Bring your questions and be ready to explore upcoming trends in digital communications. By 2025, millennials will comprise more than 75 percent of the American workforce. This generation is no stranger to technology and they’re looking for communication technologies to make their lives better. Online tools need to be simple and beautiful or they will be overlooked. Is your website easy to navigate? We are called to create an outstanding online experience because this can and often does, lead to a real encounter at our churches and schools where the outstanding experience continues.
