WA Seminar: Good Theory Good Practice

The CDAA WA Division is pleased to be hosting our annual Good Theory Good Practice professional development day.

The event will be held at Curtin University's TL Robertson Library on Level 7 in The Lantern room on Saturday, 23 September from 8:30am – 12:30pm.

The program will develop our understanding of Generation Z and their workplace expectations, the importance of seeking out grant opportunities, artificial intelligence for career practitioners, and labour market trends in WA.

As in previous years, we have put together a high quality program which will appeal to career practitioners from all sectors, including those working in private practice, universities, vocational education colleges and secondary schools.  


  • Danielle Kabilio - Operations Manager of Careers West
    Topic: Engaging the ‘Zoomers’, Our Youngest Employees

    There has never been a time in history when five generations co-existed in the workforce — until now. Each generation has a unique set of generation-defining childhood experiences that manifests in their expectations at work. Danielle will provide insights into the multi-generational workforce, with a closer look at Generation Z and their workplace expectations.

    Danielle is an Organisational Sociologist, Psycho Social Coach ICF Accredited and Co-owner of Careers West. Since 2013, Danielle has been leading Careers West in supporting businesses manage their psychosocial risks through coaching, training, outplacement, and assessment services. 

    She has a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from UNSW and other supporting accreditations including Psychometric Assessments, Saville Wave®, MBTI® Myers-Briggs-Type-Indicator®, CINERGY® Conflict Management Coaching, Advanced Coaching and YB12® Classic and Corporate Coach.

  • Jenny Gleeson - Coach and Consultant
    Topic: Personality Dimensions® - Self Exploration & Collaboration

    Personality Dimensions® is the latest evolution in Personality Temperament Theory, with its foundations established by the work of Jung, Keirsey, and Berens. Personality Dimensions® utilises a card sort/questionnaire to reveal temperament preferences.

    This session will explain how funding was gained through the Dept of Industry, Science, Energy & Resources (Career Needs for Young People) to support Aboriginal youth at risk to better understand themselves and others through type theory.  

    Delegates will gain insight into the interactive nature of the tool, which makes it versatile and easy to implement with a wide range of people, especially Aboriginal people and youth at risk of disengagement. A hands-on activity is incorporated.

    Jenny has a strong focus on Aboriginal communities, not-for-profit organisations, youth services, and charities. She wrote and self-published a resource guide called “Personalities in the Classroom”, which sold out of the first print run within 6-months.

  • Dr Cassandra Colvin - Manager of Digital Futures, College of Arts, Law, and Education at University of Tasmania
    Topic: Artificial Intelligence for Career Practitioners 

    Following on from the webinar and career conversation that Cassandra helped facilitate for CDAA earlier this year, she will be facilitating a practical workshop on artificial intelligence (AI) for career practitioners. We ask attendees to bring your own device, so we can all have a direct play and see how we can use AI to assist our clients, or make our own roles easier. 

    Cassandra is an experienced manager in the tertiary sector, having had oversight of strategy and teams across a broad array of the student experience, including careers and employability, student support, orientation and transition, learning analytics, and evaluation.

    She has presented and published widely on themes relating to learning analytics, international student support, student development, and equity.
