Lindsey Pollak, one of the world’s leading authorities on training, managing, and marketing to the Millennial generation, will be the keynote speaker at Hollins University’s 2014 Career Connection Conference (C3) on October 20.
Now in its third year, C3 welcomes Hollins alumnae back to campus to share tips, tools, and tricks of the trade with hundreds of current students on landing that first job. The event features an array of panels, workshops, presentations, and networking opportunities, including the popular “Speed Connection” sessions, which encourage students to meet with alumnae in a fast-paced, fun, and informal setting.

HarperCollins is publishing her newest book, Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders, this fall. She serves as an official ambassador for LinkedIn, spokesperson for The Hartford’s “My Tomorrow” campaign, and chair of the Cosmopolitan magazine Millennial Advisory Board.
Pollak’s keynote speaking and consulting clients total more than 150 corporations, conferences, and universities, including Barclays, Citi, GE, IBM, Liz Claiborne, Merrill Lynch, PwC, Ralph Lauren, Time Inc., Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and MIT. Her advice and opinions have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Glamour, and on The Today Show, FOX Business, CNN, and NPR.
