About Caitlin Crommett

Caitlin Crommett is a Millennial (and proud!), a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, and a speaker on the multigenerational workplace. Her interest in generational connection began at age 15, when she founded a national nonprofit called DreamCatchers, which serves to fulfill end-of-life Dreams for typically-elderly hospice patients through chapters run by youth in high school or college. These powerful interactions between generations sparked her passion for facilitating greater connection on a larger scale. Her 2016 book, “How to Attract Millennials to Your Workplace: And Actually Keep Us!”, focused on techniques and strategies for engaging Millennial employees and volunteers, and was the catalyst for her national speaking career. Since then, she has been brought in by companies and organizations nationwide to inspire, motivate, innovate, and connect teams in new ways, and has been a guest author and contributor on several platforms and media outlets.
