Staff Development Day: Save the Date & Call for Proposals

Mar 1/13


Human Resources is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Staff Development Day, scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 2013 on the Waterloo campus.  Participants from Brantford will be offered transportation to and from the event.  Be sure to note the date!

Plans for this day include an engaging keynote speaker, BBQ lunch, panel discussion and break-out sessions featuring content created and presented by your fellow colleagues.  

We’re looking for your creative ideas and expertise to enrich our programming for the day. This year our theme is “Inspiring Potential.”

We invite proposals that support our institutional proposition of “Inspiring Lives of Leadership and Purpose” and support one or more of the five Employee Success Factors

Proposals should feature the following:

  • Educational session(s) running a maximum of 75 minutes in length, which incorporates time for questions.
  • Content should include discussion, activities, and engagement on a specific topic.
  • Sessions may be led by a single presenter or in teams.  Presenters should be prepared to deliver their workshop up to 2 times during that day.

We strongly encourage proposals that include content that has the potential to appeal to a broad number of staff at all levels of the organization.

Got an idea you’d like to submit?

Download and complete the Proposal Submission Form. Be sure to fill out all fields!

How do you submit your proposal?

  • Name your file by your last name and the session title e.g., Smith_Utilizing-Social-Networking-For-Work.doc

The deadline for submissions of proposals is Friday, March 22nd, 2013. 

What will happen next?
