2019 Featured Speaker Denise Bissonnette
For those who support others to prepare for, enter, re-enter, and retain or change jobs within "the world of work", Denise Bissonnette is a beacon, a compass, a teacher, a mentor, and a colleague. She passionately inspires individuals to look beyond traditional notions of career & job development and, instead, help craft livelihoods that are rooted in the individual genius of each person. With a unique ability to bring people to the "heart" of their work, Denise opens up new insights about ourselves and the people we serve.
Denise has authored several outstanding publications on subjects that include creative job development, state of the art job search techniques, the cultivation of the human spirit, and how to "shine" on the job. Throughout North America, thousands of human services professionals are regularly challenged, inspired and affirmed through installments of her True Livelihood newsletter.
