Authenticity, Integrity and Virtue: The Foundations of Green Career Development

Dr Norman Amundson at Cannexus16 in January 2016. Green career development is more than an office recycling program. It challenges clients and career counsellors to anchor their identity in who they really are, to seek out their natural life patterns and to express their life / career values. Green career development is relevant during the good times and during the bad times. This keynote address will explore what it means to apply green career development principles to working life and to the process of helping clients. Dr Norman E Amundson is a leader in career development research, counsellor education and practitioner training. He is a Professor in Counselling Psychology at the University of British Columbia. His research focuses on counselling methods, an action-oriented hope model, and the transition experience for unemployed clients and various immigration groups. His numerous lectures, articles, workshops and seminars emphasize the importance of imagination, creativity, cultural awareness, hope and active engagement in the career counselling process. His publications include over 100 journal articles; training DVDs; a number of books – many of which have been translated into different languages; and several career workbooks. Dr Amundson has played active leadership roles within the career development sector, in Canada and internationally, including the British Columbia Career Development Association, the US-based National Career Development Association and the International Association of Educational and Vocational Guidance.

Canada’s Demographic Destiny: Implications for our Rapidly Changing Labour Market

Michael Adams at Cannexus12 in January 2012. Michael Adams will climb 35,000 feet to the top of his mountain of trend data and look ahead into Canada’s demographic future.  Using the sophisticated market research and modeling tools of Environics Research Group and sister firm Environics Analytics, Mr. Adams will present data and projections on groups integral to the future prosperity of Canada over the next 10 years:  immigrants, visible minorities, Aboriginals, aging baby boomers and entrepreneurial youth.  Armed with this data, he will stimulate the audience with ideas on how these demographic shifts will impact Canadian employers in their efforts to recruit, retrain and incent the employees needed for market success. Michael Adams is a noted commentator on social values and social change in North America. The founding president of the Environics group of research and communications consulting companies, Michael has written five books published by Penguin Canada, including the bestselling Fire and Ice: The United States, Canada, and the Myth of Converging Values, which won the Donner Prize for the best book on Canadian public policy in 2003. In his most recent book, Stayin’ Alive: How Canadian Baby Boomers Will Work, Play, and Find Meaning In the Second Half of Their Adult Lives (Penguin, November 2010), Michael reflects on the changes Baby Boomers have brought about in Canadian society—and the changes that are yet to come. In chapters on family, health, technology, politics, retirement, meaning, and death, Adams shows that the over nine million Canadians born between 1946 and 1965 are anything but uniform. Environics social values data reveal four distinct values tribes that will negotiate the years to come in their own ways. Understanding the diversity of this large and influential generation is a must for marketers, human resources managers, policy makers, and engaged citizens. In 2006, Michael founded the Environics Institute for Survey Research, a non-profit entity whose mission is to sponsor relevant and original public opinion, attitude and social values research related to issues of public policy and social change. The Environics Institute seeks to survey those not usually heard from, using questions not usually asked. To date, the Institute’s projects have included the first ever major survey of Canadian Muslims as well as an ambitious Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study (UAPS) that sought to illuminate the experiences, values, identities and aspirations of Inuit, Metis, and First Nations people living in Canada’s cities. A popular public speaker, Michael Adams offers topical, entertaining talks elaborating the data presented in his books. In addition to his groundbreaking work in social values analysis, he has conducted traditional polling in Canada for over three decades. Michael’s speaking repertoire includes a long-range look at the evolution of Canadian public opinion on a range of issues from public policy to national identity and diversity. View
