Workshops & Facilitations

I help groups and teams have more effective and engaging interactions and to build braver, courageous, and more humanistic workplace relationships by sharing key leadership skills and best practices. I draw upon more than 15 years of professional experience as a corporate trainer, a manager, a leader, a mentor, and a post-secondary instructor, to help your group or team grow, improve, and reach desired state goals.

As a facilitator, I design and facilitate planning sessions for maximum engagement and results that leave learners, and their organizations, feeling confident that they are on track to achieving their best outcomes.

I have designed and delivered skill development and team-building workshops and programs for groups that include the government, healthcare, professional associations, post-secondary institutions, and entrepreneurs’ groups, just to highlight a few. I have experience as an educator at the post-secondary level and was Director of Learning and Organizational development for two different organizations and Vice President of Talent Development for a healthcare organization, where I was responsible for introducing and growing a coaching skills and professional and leadership development program for associates, supervisors, managers, and senior leaders.
