In April 2017, leaders of post-secondary career development, career services, co-operative education, and other experiential learning offices will gather at the Canadian Career Development Summit.
Participants will learn new management skills, discuss changes that are affecting student career development, share experiences, debate the issues, and plan for the changes to come.
The Summit is a unique opportunity for directors and their management teams to meet with like-minded individuals from across the country.
As the first summit of its kind since 2012, we anticipate a large turnout of career development leaders. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the conversation and help lead student career development in Canada.
The Summit will be a concise and intense 2-day and 2-night residential program.
Beginning with a networking reception and dinner on April 11th, participants will be immersed in an exchange of ideas starting with a lively debate on the first evening.
The 12th and 13th will consist of a series of workshops, panels, roundtables, and other interactive sessions as well as opportunities for the informal exchange of ideas over meals and in the evenings. The program will conclude by 4:30 PM on the 13th.
The Kempenfelt Conference Centre, 1 hour north of Toronto’s Pearson airport, provides a casual venue well away from the office for all participants. Everyone will have their own comfortable private accommodations and all rooms, meals, and refreshment breaks are included in the registration fee.
Driving change starts with effective planning that engages your team, your stakeholders, and potentially even your broader communities. This full-day pre-conference workshop will provide training in strategic planning that has been developed specifically for leaders of career development on post-secondary campuses.
The program will be lead by Brainstorm Strategy Group’s Graham Donald who has experience facilitating strategic planning with career offices at McGill U, Simon Fraser U, Wilfrid Laurier U, UBC, George Brown College, U Regina, and numerous others.
The pre-conference program registration includes accommodations and 3 meals starting with dinner on April 10th.
