What can you do better to communicate your own story and harness “The Power Of Storytelling”?
What can the career field learn to shape up its image and market itself better?
Why do clients and customers have to feel, not just understand?

Increasingly, governments around the world are seeing the economic and social value of career services, but in Canada and internationally, these services remain fragile. The Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF) is working in partnership with professional associations and research groups to advocate for strengthening these vital services.
Lynne Bezanson and Sareena Hopkins are Co-Executive Directors of the CCDF. They are career development leaders, authors, researchers and educators committed to strengthening career services for Canadians of all ages. CCDF directed the first two International Symposia on Career Development and Public Policy as well as the inaugural pan-Canadian Symposium on Career Development, Lifelong Learning and Workforce Development. CCDF was instrumental in the development of the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners and the formation of the Canadian Research Working Group for Evidence-Based Practice in Career Development (CRWG).
Tune in to hear Lynne and Sareena in conversation with Career Buzz Host Mark Franklin on:
- CCDF’s participation in the 6th International Symposium on Career Development and Public Policy in Budapest, Hungary in December 2011
- Recent research projects demonstrating the positive impact of career services delivered in the workplace and community
- Training programs, including Lasting Gifts and Future in Focus to help youth and parents
