Keynote: How Career Development Will Save the World

The pandemic was an unexpected global event that underscored the criticality of having a career mindset: both a perspective and an approach that enable an individual to regularly assess their circumstances, strengths, and priorities; purse meaningful work and life opportunities that promotes growth; and remain adaptable and resilient in times of uncertainty.

To be excellent in the 'new normal', we as career development professionals need to help those we serve embrace a career mindset, and as well, adopt it ourselves. This keynote presentation is designed to be informative, reflective, and celebratory.

Workshop: Maximising Career Intervention Through Career Influences

As career practitioners, how can we ensure that our work and impact become long-lasting with our clients, regardless of the number of opportunities that we have to advise and consult each client? Additionally, how can we maximize the time spent advising each client, while effectively continuing to grow our practice without investing in additional resources?

This workshop introduces a systemic helping approach involving Career Influencers, a phenomenon she uncovered in her doctoral research. Numerous studies have found that people are likely to seek career help from those they trust within their personal network, such as family members, co-workers, and teachers. These Career Influencers often informally provide career advice, guidance, and counselling without career development background and training.
