This October (2011) I attended Lesah Beckhusen’s, 3 hour presentation on , “Integrating Results into Core Career Themes” in Portland, Oregon. The content she shared was superb and offered me many new insights and applications into the use of SkillScan with students and clients. The presentation was so compelling, interactive and useful to career professionals that the three hours passed in what seemed like the blink of an eye.
