  1. Green Career Development     SPEAKER: Norman Amundson                               Dr. Peter Plant, Copenhangen Denmark coined the term "green career development".  Identify passions; how are you intelligent; connect with likeminded people; support risk-taking, creativity, flexibility.  Assess your practice and how you are green - recycle, local; have awareness of impact - ethically and economically.  To me we still need to go further and reduce consumption in our lifestyles - but this would be bad for financial economics and social economics - image.
  2. Behavioural Economics, Career Development & Irrational Decision-Making            Life Role Development Group Ltd.   SPEAKER: Dave Redekopp, Edmonton, AB        Either or VS. Both and; Cognitive Illusions (though you know it's happening, you can't/don't stop); Anchoring (expectation rather than absolutes shape decision - also called 'reference dependence' or 'priming' - searching based on income rather than need); Loss Aversion (having something & losing it is emotionally bigger than not having the same thing and getting it - losing and starting work; Framing; Sunk Cost Bias; Base Rate Neglect; Planning Falacy (use proper time estimates); Crowding Out (external rewards ' crowd out' intrinsic motivation)

I wasn't finished.... I thought I was saving the text and could continue working. It would be ideal if we could begin writing, save and edit over time prior to posting...
