The Millennial Summit: Inspiration and Growth for All

Tuesday, The Chase Center at the Wilmington, DE Riverfront was the place to be.

It was a day of powerfully inspirational talks, panels, breakout sessions, and camaraderie. The annual 2nd Annual Millennial Summit hosted over 600 attendees along with rising stars of the professional, political and nonprofit worlds.

Everything from free headshots to cornhole competitions and the “Shiggy Challenge” -#MillSummit made work conferences a lot less boring.

One highlighted panelist was Katie Meyler’s, the founder of More Than Me, an organization devoted to educating children in Liberia. She took the audience through a roller coaster of emotions as she described her work: The triumph of establishing a school for girls after winning the Chase $1 Million award, the horror as, a few years later, ebola ravaged the town and she became one of the Ebola Fighters recognized as Time’s Person of the Year in 2014.

Meyler’s powerful talk, interspersed with poetry and song, was strikingly relatable and deeply inspiring. And that, really, is what the Millenial Summit is about.

A highlight was Tapp Network’s “Nonprofit Luau,” a new feature where attendees networked with 20-some nonprofits 90 seconds at a time, speed-dating style. Tapp’s Brooke Chase refereed.

The event is still in its infancy — this is its second year, and the increased attendance rate met expectations. Projections for next year’s MILLSUMMIT are in the rage of 1,000 people.

That’s a lot of pens.
