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.
EQ: TACKLING THE POWERFUL POSSIBILITIES ENVIRONMENTAL PROFESSIONALS CAN ACHIEVE BY GROWING AND MASTERING THEIR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
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.

Core6 Environmental would like to invite BEST 2019 participants to join us for a mountain bike ride on Whistler’s fabulous trails. We’ll ride at noon on Wednesday, May 8th.

You should be comfortable riding for 2 to 3 hours on technical single track trails and have at least an intermediate level of fitness and bike handling skills. The ride will be on Intermediate (blue square) rated trails, where you can expect to encounter trail obstacles such as roots, rocks, and ladder bridges, and a dual suspension mountain bike is recommended. Post ride rehydration and refueling will be in the Mallard lounge!
