PowerSkills 2020

2020 has challenged us in ways that we could have never imagined. Here’s what hasn’t changed: the need to be equipped with specific skills to be competitive in an ever-changing labour market! While these are often referred to as *soft* skills, it is misrepresentative of the POWER that comes with being proficient in these skills. Several national and international studies continue to confirm the need for soft skills such as, professional communications, leadership, collaboration, cultural competencies, effective feedback, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and entrepreneurship are critical to succeed now and in the future.

Do you want to enhance your skill set? Are you looking for inspiration to take your professional development to the next level? Are you ready to take action? Then, stay right where you are because we’re coming to you!

PowerSkills 2020 is a five-day virtual event featuring dozens of remote events designed to help you skill-up. Enjoy one, some or all of the activities – all offered FREE! We’re also meeting you where you are at with different formats that will appeal to diverse learning styles. This is your opportunity to network with peers, industry leaders and soft skill subject matter experts.
