Meet a millennial named Darrell Keezer. He’s a married father of four. He runs two successful digital marketing agencies. And he’s going to tell you why your take on the millennial generation is largely bull.

The future belongs to companies who engage this influential generation of change-makers. In this unbridled keynote, Darrell  schools you on why you must recruit millennials to grow your business.
