Group Plenary

Kimberley Rawes is a Career Educator with over 8 years of experience in career development with students at UBC. She is passionate about developing progressive applications of career theories as well as facilitating engaging and enriching sessions for students to learn and grow. She is particularly proud of this work as it is an innovative and experimental approach to how professional skills are taught.

Breakout Session #1
Constance Lynn Hummel offers personal and professional development opportunities for leaders on all paths. Her clients are entrepreneurs, executives, creatives, community leaders and inspired action-takers (or those that want to be). She works with people who are here to leave their mark and make a positive difference in the world. If this sounds like you, one thing is for sure – you have a vision and you know how to get things done. However, even those blazing a new trail can get stuck, spin their wheels, and need somewhere to turn for support and strategy. You often can’t see the picture when you’re standing in the frame.

Breakout Session #2
Whether you are looking for employment, career enhancement or self-employment, as long as you are looking for a long-term strategy to help you build a career or business where you thrive rather than survive, this workshop on personal branding may be suitable for you.


Note: Since there will be quite a bit of writing in this workshop, please bring a pen and a notebook/clipboard to make your writing easy.

This hands-on workshop will allow you to roll up your sleeves to:

  • Discover elements and personal stories that make up your brand
  • Create your personal “business model” that drives your personal branding strategy
  • Learn the secrets and myths about other branding tools and ways to market your brand such as networking

Participants are expected to leave the workshop with a much clearer understanding of their personal brands and a career management strategy authentic to themselves and designed to support their long-term career success.
