Tea Kathä with Mahas is a series of talks on Communication, facilitated by Zainul Mahas Murshid the founder of Interventionz Consultancy. It is all about having a relaxed evening talk on a subject related to Communication, with post-session networking over some iced tea.


The first event of the series, ‘Communication for Entrepreneurs’ took place on Thursday, the 10th of January, 2018. Now we are ready with Tea Kathä with Mahas # 2 – Messaging Millennials!


‘Millennial’ is a term coined to define those born between 1982 and 2004. In popular use, millennials are considered those who 'came of age' in the new millennia with its technology, new age thinking and new way of doing things. Older generations also seem to hold a very generalized view of millennials as a group of persons with a callous attitude towards tradition and the 'old school' way of doing things. What is very clear is that millennials have a distinctive style, and should be spoken to in a manner tailored to them. In this edition of Tea Kathä with Mahas; Shannon Misso and Sashane Perera join the conversation, on ‘Messaging Millennials’, an exploration into how best to communicate with the millennials.
