About the session

This session explores how practitioners can use educational theory to  examine higher order thinking skills necessary for making complex career decisions.
While current career development theories and assessments are very helpful in  providing important information to clients, career decision-making models can be improved by providing clients with additional analytical and evaluative skills.
This session will demonstrate how current career development theories fit into the
higher order thinking model and identify areas for further study.

About the session

Considerable time, effort, and money is spent creating a company brand. Its purpose is to represent us when we are unavailable to do so. What is often forgotten is that the way we speak is also a vital aspect to branding, and that words have the power to either authenticate or completely eviscerate the carefully nurtured and maintained image. Learn how to personally and verbally represent the company and close the branding loop.
