CERIC is pleased to announce the keynote speakers for Cannexus20, Canada’s largest bilingual National Career Development Conference. Cannexus is designed to promote the exchange of information and explore innovate approaches in the areas of career counselling and career and workforce development. The conference takes place January 27-29, 2020 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa and is expected to welcome 1,200 delegates.

Three exciting keynote speakers will be sharing their experiences and insights:

  • Tristram Hooley, Director of Research, The Careers & Enterprise Company
  • Zita Cobb, Founder & CEO, Fogo Island Inn and Shorefast Foundation

The Cannexus20 Call for Presenters is still open. Education sessions can cover innovations and best practices in career counselling/coaching techniques, employment and training programs, employee recruitment and engagement, workforce planning and more. The submission deadline is June 7, 2019.

Cannexus continues to grow in scope and size each year. At Cannexus20, you can expect to join peers whose focus includes career development from education, community, government and private sectors. Attendees will examine the changing ways that we define work, find jobs and develop skills as part of a national conversation.

In addition to world-class keynotes and more than 150 education sessions, a popular exhibitor showcase (sold out last year) will feature products, programs and services from across the career development field. The Sponsor & Exhibitor Prospectus will be available in May. Contact sandra@ceric.ca about sponsorship and exhibit opportunities.

Registration opens July 3, 2019 with Super Saver pricing. Special rates for presenters, members of supporting organizations, students and groups will be available.
