School Nutrition - Putting the Puzzle Together

June 4-5, 2018
Hilton Sedona Resort - Sedona, Arizona

Whether you are a CN operator, manufacturer, distributor or broker, when it comes to the profession of child nutrition it can seem like a huge puzzle. And as the equation states it is much easier when we do it together because the bottom line is to build a satisfied customer base of well-nourished students that are prepared to learn.

Meagan Johnson, CSP
Keynote Presenter

Meagan Johnson, CSP

Meagan is known as a "Generational Humorist" and has an outspoken take-no-prisoners Gen X attitude and challenges her audiences to think differently and act decisively when dealing with multiple generations.

Since 1997 she has entertained and educated thousands of audience members. Meagan has written a variety of articles about the multiple generations and has been interviewed for many publications and audio programs. She has been quoted in The Chicago Tribune,, US News & World Report and many other key publications. She wrote the Generational chapter in the book, Success is a Team Effort. Meagan and her Baby Boomer Father, Larry Johnson are the co-authors of the best-seller Generations, Inc. – From Boomers to Linksters, Managing the Friction Between Generations at Work.

Nothing changes perceptions more than a passion for life, work and success. To complicate matters, each generation has a different perception of what motivates them. Once you take the time to understand the motivations and mind-set of each generation, working with them, communicating with them and managing them becomes a more successful effort. What seemed like a perfect solution yesterday is the source of tomorrow’s problem. Learn from Meagan what you can do now to make the most of each generation in your workplace!
