Anne Babej
Director, Professional Development

The presentation you made was superb. Your enthusiasm was infectious, your suggestions invaluable and your anecdotes and humour delightful.
Mark Berkowitz
Exec-U-Net Canada

His enthusiastic and entertaining style was contagious and in very short order we responded eagerly to his invitations and participated in the puzzles and riddles he offered. We learned to ask, "what if?" and explore our crazy ideas. I walked away from that evening feeling rejuvenated and determined to use my imagination more fully.
Leah A. Jones
VP Education and Membership

Thank you for helping to make CGA Ontario's annual conference the success it was. Thank you for readily accommodating the ever-growing number for your session.

In fact, your median rating for the session on creative problem solving was 10/10. One can't do any better than that. Thank you for your enthusiastic and creating training.
Delmarie Scherloski, Director
CGA Ontario

Congratulations on the powerful closing keynote speech you delivered at our annual conference last summer. Attendees are still talking about it. I saw our members engaged, attentive and taking notes. You made them laugh, think and kept them riveted to the end. Then they were eager to leave and apply the marketing principles and techniques you clearly outlined for them. Not only did you entertain them - you inspired them to action.
Sid Kenmir
Executive Director

Most of our members are not in sales related professions. Your pleasant style and ease with the audience endeared you to the group and made everything you presented interesting and enjoyable.
Colleen Clarke
Executive director

For some of us, selling anything is a daunting prospect and selling ourselves is downright terrifying. Your lively and interactive presentation style diminished some of that fear. Much as we may balk at the thought, it is obvious that today's job market requires us to learn the most effective way to sell ourselves to any prospective employer. No one at my table was yawning or getting coffee!!
Sue Ferguson

The seminar was very informative and all the feedback I have received has been positive. Your complete understanding of the topic complemented your excellent and thoughtful presentation.
Jim Goudreau
1st Vice President

Your presence enhanced our program and was of real assistance in our attempt to provide our membership with the best opportunity for professional growth.

I was looking for an informative presentation - one which would be of personal benefit to our members, yet one which, given the time of year, would be light and entertaining. Your session was both interesting and enjoyable and I received positive feedback from many of our members after the meeting.
Bob Primeau C.H.R.P.
HRPAO Hamilton

It was certainly very informative and helped us sit back, evaluate and take a long look at what we are doing, where we are going and how we intend to get there.
J. Hans Vander Stoep, Executive Director

I was impressed by the organization of your material. Active involvement is an essential element in the learning process. You certainly had involvement both individually and as a group. The use of a variety of strategies for communication also enhanced the impact of your presentation.

Brian Ardron

You were extremely professional, even with a small audience. Not many speakers give their best with such a small audience and I recognize your superior skills to give 100% of yourself with whatever audience. Your ability to hold the audience captive with your wit and humour was truly appreciated.
Angie J. Anderson

Your presentation made me feel refreshed and invigorated to continue with the ongoing struggle to be recognized and perceived as a good, fair and valuable individual. The effectiveness of your message was perfect. Your presentation technique, use of props and simple 'how-to' tips hit home. I gained much new perspective about perception and what direction to be in to keep up my best image. Thanks again for an outstanding presentation.
