February 14, 2017

​ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Washington Post Columnist Gene Marks will deliver the keynote address at this year’s Conexxus Annual Conference, taking place April 24-27 at the Loews Annapolis Hotel in Annapolis.

Marks will speak on the unique aspects of attracting and retaining millennial talent—today’s largest (and growing) labor segment. Millennials represent a new set of values, needs and talents that set their generation apart from previous generations. Their mastery of technology presents huge opportunities for productivity and innovation, but only if the organization can adapt.

As a small business expert, Marks writes daily for The Washington Post, focusing on issues affecting the business community. He also writes weekly columns for Forbes, Fox Business, The Huffington Post and Entrepreneur magazine. Marks frequently appears on Fox News and CNBC discussing matters affecting the business community. He also appears quarterly on MSNBC’s “Your Business” program. Prior to starting the Marks Group PC, he spent nine years in the entrepreneurial services arm of the international consulting firm KPMG, where he was a senior manager.

Marks joins Jeff Ma, member of the MIT Blackjack Team and data driven entrepreneur, for a rich lineup of Conexxus Annual Conference speakers and sessions. To see the full agenda or register for the meeting, go to conexxus.org/2017AnnualConference.
