For over 20 years Rob has counselled both employers and employees about the impact that job loss has on ones career and how to minimize the negative affects. Along the way his interest in movies has provided him with some "learning tools" that relate to the do's and don'ts, and life lessons, regarding human considerations when downsizing.  This entertaining and informative session promises to help you relate to some of the most common aspects of human nature when it comes to career counselling but with a "Hollywood" perspective. You will also be provided with reference material and guidelines for conducting a dismissal. This should prove helpful to anyone who may be involved in the termination process whether experienced or not.
