PDI Program Highlights


​Aubrey Bach, PayScale
Aubrey's topic, "Zen and the Art of Data-Driven Salary Negotiation" will examine the way employees and employers view and approach salary negotiation and suggest better practices for both parties. We’ll dissect why people are so hesitant to talk about salary and talk about the ways we can negotiate more effectively.


Jenna Hyatt, CWU

​Jenna’s expertise, research, and the topic of her presentation, relate to understanding generational differences. Her informative and entertaining application of theory and practice will help career professionals identify and better understand generational differences and choose strategies to encourage more effective interaction.


Keynote Speaker

Carol Vecchio, NCDA Trustee & Founder of Centerpoint Institute

Carol’s topic, “Childhood Clues”, builds on the premise that we each have innate talents that often remain undiscovered.
