During the upcoming 17th annual Shared Ownership Investment Conference  at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach from September 30 – October 2, keynote speaker David Stillman will offer hard-hitting facts on generational attributes and their potential impact on the timeshare industry. A sought-after expert and best-selling author, he has provided guidance to many of America’s best-known companies, including American Express, Citigroup, Coca-Cola, Disney, and Wells-Fargo.

Why are Generation Xers more self-reliant than other groups and why do Millennials crave co-creation? How can organizations optimize these preferences in their sales and marketing initiatives? Stillman will address these questions and more during his Thursday presentation at 12:30 p.m. He will speak in place of guest speaker Lynne Lancaster with whom he co-authored the book, The M-Factor: How the Millennial Generation is Rocking the Workplace.

“From attitudes about loyalty and spending to staying on the cutting edge, each generation has unique traits,” said David Stillman, co-founder of BridgeWorks. “This session will help attendees understand how these groups differ and how they can tailor communications more effectively to meet their needs.”

This year’s Shared Ownership Investment Conference offers a variety of unique opportunities to learn from leaders in the business. In addition to Stillman, recognized authorities will present best-practices for high-tech sales, media strategies and financing, among other topics.  Registrants will attend educational and networking sessions and receive complimentary research studies with a combined retail value of more than $1,000.  To register, visit www.sharedownershipinvestment.com.
