Featured Guests

Doctorant

Michel Lacasse est doctorant en administration et politiques de l’éducation à l’Université Laval. Parent-étudiant depuis 2020, il vit pleinement la conciliation famille-études-travail.

Ses recherches et interventions actuelles portent sur les pratiques de gestion en contexte éducatif et leurs relations avec les technologies numériques. Il accompagne depuis de nombreuses années les acteurs du réseau éducatif dans leur transformation organisationnelle, le développement de leurs compétences et leur transition numérique. Il est diplômé d’une première maîtrise en technologie éducative et d’une deuxième en éducation (profil administration scolaire), en plus de détenir un diplôme d’études supérieures spécialisées en administration scolaire et un baccalauréat en éducation préscolaire et primaire.

Career Coach / Trainer / Speaker

As a career coach and trainer Amani Said is on a mission to empower as many scientists as possible in launching dream careers that are making an impact in our society. Working on her mindset and changing her habits was the key that helped her overcome most of my obstacles and achieve her personal and professional goals. That is why today Amani is training and coaching 100s of scientists in doing the same, developing a growth mindset in combination with learning all the career development skills to launch their dream careers.

Doctorante en Psychologie

Passionnée de communication scientifique, Catherine Cimon-Paquet est présentement chercheuse doctorante à lUQAM. Elle sintéresse à des sujets de recherche variés dans le domaine de la psychologie, dont les relations interpersonnelles, la douance, le sommeil et la psychologie positive. Grâce à ses différentes implications, elle souhaite inspirer les gens à utiliser la science pour se développer et transformer leur vie.

Lecturer - Trainer - Author

Sara Vero is a lecturer and researcher in soil and agricultural science. Many areas of study involve outdoor experiments which bring unique challenges, but often, training is focused on laboratory approaches only. Sara’s goal is to help students and early career researchers to develop skills that will make them successful in the field, and take away the anxiety that many feel around fieldwork. Her book ‘Fieldwork Ready’ covers logistics, safety, experimental design, and essential techniques for field research and I run online and in-person workshops and consultations. Many of the skills and approaches learned during field research are transferable to career development, particularly post-docs and early career researchers.

Fondatrice et dirigeante d"agence conseil

Erika Dupont est docteure en histoire de l’art contemporain depuis deux ans. Pendant sa thèse, Erika a connu le statut de doctorante salariée d’abord (pendant 3 ans) puis a obtenu un gros financement de l’université de Yale. Ce parcours et les obstacles rencontrés avec chacun des deux statuts lui ont donné envie de créer l’Agence Conseil aux acteurs de la recherche scientifique après l’obtention de son doctorat.

Son but aujourd’hui ? Permettre aux jeunes chercheurs de surmonter les grands obstacles de la recherche, en construisant dès l’inscription un projet doctoral qui soit porteur pour eux et pour leur carrière.

François T. on Podchaser

Your podcast series is like a treasure mine for me 🙂  Every time I listen to one episode I find someone I want to connect to.

I don’t know how I will be implementing the feedback and guidance I have received so far from all the connections from your podcast series, but at least I know I really am enjoying connecting with new people.

Especially knowing that someone is involved in a job they are really happy in and that they have carved for themselves is so inspiring.
