Bloomberg reports that Generation Z inhabitants have an 8 second attention span (down from 12 seconds ten years ago). Perhaps this may be attributed to being uber connected to 5 devices at once. How do you see this as advantageous? How might this be a challenge in the workplace? How will you cope? Jackie Hinkle
61% of High-School students report that they want to be entrepreneurs rather than employees. Is there room in the firms for entrepreneurs? Will you have to “settle” for the other 39%? Do you believe entrepreneurial aspirations will evolve based on the actual size of the market for entrepreneurs? Tracy Hutton
