2010 Full Lives Conference for Direct Service Professionals "Chill Out, Don't Burn Out!"
April 15-16, 2010 - Sheraton Anchorage Hotel
Denise Bissonnette is an internationally renowned writer, trainer and keynote speaker. For two decades, she has inspired people and organizations throughout North America to look beyond traditional concepts of career development and to craft livelihoods rooted in the individual “genius” of each person. Denise has authored several publications on creative job development, state of the art job search techniques, the cultivation of the human spirit, and how to “shine” on the job. Her work is a rich tapestry of her talents as a poet, writer, storyteller, teacher and career developer.
David Harp's work as a cognitive scientist involves studying the way in which the brain obtains and processes information, then uses that information to produce our words, our actions, and our emotions.
The author of nearly two dozen books, a corporate speaker, and a professional musician, David travels the USA and the world helping organizations work more co-operatively, more creatively, and with less stress.
But David never just lectures his audiences on the mysteries of the human brain, as he also happens to be America’s best-known, and fastest, harmonica teacher, with more than a million students to his credit! So he combines his two favorite mental disciplines — harmonica and cognitive psychology — into entertaining but effective workshops for organizations including Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Kraft Foods, the Red Cross and Blue Cross, Merck Pharmaceutical, and the FBI.
