Professional development opportunity in becoming a presenter.

26 April 2019 12:59 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Pictured: Warren Bruns of Kootenay Employment Services in Creston presents during the Inspiration Panel at the 2017 ASPECT Conference about how his organization has used technology to reduce barriers and improve outcomes.

On Tuesday, you would have received our call for presentations for the ASPECT Conference in November. It seems strange to be doing this when the ASPECT Summit (June 4 & 5, 2019) plans are not completely set. The fall conference has been going for over 25 years, but the Employer-Employment Services Summit is new, unknown, and was created to address a growing need for employers to have access to clients and services they may not have used or considered before.  New events take time.

Both of these ASPECT events reflect our raison d'être: they provide much-needed networking for the sector, they respond to current conditions, they provide professional development by presenting best practices and innovations, and they provide a good opportunity to inform the advocacy work we do. The other benefit that is becoming increasingly important is that these events provide an opportunity for those working in the sector to hone their presentation skills.

If you are on the fence about whether or not to present at the ASPECT Conference or the ASPECT Summit, I encourage you to give it a try. Your remuneration is presentation experience that you can pad your CV with as well as a complimentary conference registration. We also have a very small travel budget that we can dip into to help get you there.

For the ASPECT Summit, I will be holding a video conference call to recruit panel members on Tuesday, April 30 at noon. These are the topics we are developing:
  • Using Big Data to Meet Labour Market Needs
  • Ingenious Hiring: What big business is doing?
  • Business Case for Inclusive Hires: President’s Group
  • Trends in Staff Attraction and Retention
  • Future Skills Centre - Projects & Opportunities
  • Best Ways to Recruit Seasonal & Temporary Workers
  • Business Case for Hiring Youth & Millennial Workers
  • Business Case for Hiring Immigrant Workers
  • Business Case for Hiring Indigenous Workers
  • Business Case for Inclusive Hires: President’s Group
If you have a speciality in one or more of the above topics, please let me know. The panels will have a facilitator, a service provider, an employer, and sometimes a client.  Register now for this member discussion online meeting.
