Dr. Bozonelos’ presentation will examine the workforce crisis and how millennials will fit into an emerging enterprise. Millennials are the largest generation in history and are moving into their prime spending years. Undoubtedly, millennials are poised to reshape the economy – their unique experiences will change the way we buy and sell, forcing high desert businesses to examine how they do business for decades to come.

“As a former student of Dr. Bozonelos, I am thrilled to have him present on the workforce crisis. Millennials have come of age during a time of technological change, globalization, and global economic recession. These factors have given millennials a different set of behaviors and experiences than their parents that play critically into their lifestyles and purchasing habits,” said Dillon Lesovsky, an alumnus Victor Valley College.

He holds a Ph.D in political science from University of California, Riverside.
