Program Descriptions


I’m Not Sure the Traditional 4-Year College is For Me: What are My Other Options? In this talk, aimed at high school students and graduates, community college students, and any young person unsure whether they would flourish in a traditional college environment, career mentor and apprenticeship expert Mr. Wyman shatters the outdated notion that a traditional 4-year education is the best or only path to a well paid, and rewarding career.

“Skilling Up, ”Where to Find Your Next Great Hire: Are you a hiring manager having a hard time finding people with the right skills to do the jobs you need filled? Or are you an executive or business owner having trouble recruiting people with the skills needed to innovate, grow your business, and compete in a tough economy? If so, there may be one obvious place you haven’t thought to look yet: inside your own organization.

People without jobs and jobs without people—bridging the skills gap: Drawing on his work with the organizations, governments, and educational institutions who are pioneering the most cutting-edge solutions to the skills-gap problem, Wyman offers a roadmap for how organizations, communities, and educators can come together to develop the human capital needed to keep our businesses innovative and profitable, our economy healthy and humming, and our nation sustainably competitive in today’s global economy.

Why Skills-Based Training Is The Perfect Fit for Gen Y: Skills training is a natural match for the entrepreneurial mindset of this generation—Getting a cluster of skills that can evolve, ensuring young people don’t obtain just one degree and become ‘locked in’ is a critical ingredient to a successful and rewarding career. Studies support that Gen Y says outright, they don’t want to have the same job for a lifetime. They want the opportunity to change and grow; they want to cultivate an “entrepreneurial attitude” towards their work life. Mr. Wyman’s presentation will explore how to connect motivated students to the jobs of the 21st Century. Mr. Wyman will give an insight into his conversations with employers. How they think and how they hire.
