PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP ANNOUNCED!
ECO Canada and BCEIA present a 1/2 Day Pre-Conference Workshop
The environment industry is a multi-disciplinary sector comprising scientists, engineers, and other professionals from a wide range of technical backgrounds. Technical expertise has been essential to the success of this growing sector.
ECO Canada’s labour market research indicates soft skills as a frequent gap most employers identify in their staff. Technical competencies may be needed to gain employment, but soft skills are essential in keeping a job and career growth.
BCEIA and ECO Canada have partnered up to address this gap and are pleased to offer a half-day soft skills pre-conference workshop on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 8.
The EQ – Leadership Connection
Greg Campeau with Campeau Learning will lead this session. Here is what Greg has to say about the importance of Emotional Intelligence, or EQ. “The research is crystal clear – regardless of the type of work, EQ is the cornerstone of superior performance. When star performers were analyzed the one consistent common denominator was they had healthy EQ! The purpose of this course is to demystify EQ, help people assess their current level of EQ and most importantly provide proven and practical strategies on how to develop ones EQ.”

After spending nearly twenty years testing the limits of human endurance in the most inhospitable environments on the planet, Kevin has developed a sixth sense, a ‘wild wisdom’, that allows him to succeed at everything he does. “There’s nothing special about me,” he says steadfastly when asked, “I don’t have some hidden talent or gift, I just know how to get things done.” He inspires audiences with his core belief that all of us are capable of achieving big goals.
The world is more connected than ever before. But with that connection, comes a barrage of information that is hard to sort through from fact & fiction. We see it in agriculture, energy, manufacturing, and of course you see it in your industry too. The impacts are real when we look at what that information can do to public trust, as more regulations & buyer demands are implemented, some of which aren’t any safer, but merely a nod to misunderstood public pressure. Something can be done. Something needs to be done. Public outreach through social media, dinner conversations, grocery check-out lines and more can all help. But you’ve got to stand up for your industry if you want to have an impact on it.
