Graphic Recording by Marguerite Drescher at www.bravespace.ca.
An interactive plenary session has been built into the conference this year and will be a refreshing and exploratory experience not to be missed. The format will engage the entire group in mini and full room conversations about what’s going on in our field, what we can do to make the most of our learning when we are together and what we can do to implement positive changes upon our return to the workplace.
Please come prepared to challenge your assumptions, take responsibility for what you care about and be open for honest dialogue with professionals in various roles in the field of Career Development.
Tim Merry will help guide the session while setting a tone for positive and real conversation in a dynamic atmosphere. His colleague Marguerite Drescher, visual artist and graphic recorder will help capture the important themes in our conversations.
