About our Speakers
Travis Schneider, M.Sc., Ph.D. (Cand.)
Travis is an Industrial/Organizational Psychology Consultant who leverages his expertise in assessment to help guide clients on their career paths and help coach employees and leaders to better realize and improve their potential.
He received a M.Sc. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Western Ontario, and he is currently completing his Ph.D. on the topic of how new technologies, such as social media, can be used as part of an organization’s hiring process.
His graduate and consulting work on assessments has ranged from focusing on the design, or psychometrics, of assessments (e.g., classical test theory, item response theory, polytomous item response theory), to the validation and administration of these assessments, and finally to the delivery of feedback on these assessments to clients. He leverages these skills to better understand clients, what issues they are facing, and how they can be coached to solve these issues and become better employees and leaders.
