All feedback I have heard is that the content and delivery of the writing workshop was exceptional and well-received. Susan was very pleased that so much was accomplished in 3 hours. She firmly believes that the material learned will help staff communicate more effectively. The content was bang-on for the type of writing we are expected to do daily.

“CNW’s sales team attends many social events as part of their overall job responsibilities. To be sure we make the most of these opportunities; I went looking for a coach to help them improve their networking skills. As testimony to her obvious networking talent, Lynne and I were just strangers in an airport until we began chatting. A few weeks later, she conducted an energetic, interactive session at our annual sales conference on networking, social etiquette and professional attire. The team loved the session and took away many valuable lessons that they were able to put into play right away.”

Thank you very much for speaking at the TD Associate Training Session for Commercial Banking last week in Toronto. I cannot describe how impactful your lesson was.

I used your networking tactics on the train. What started as talking to a complete stranger with nothing in common, ended in an invitation to a jazz grand opening party and wonderful career advice. I am now in the middle of analyzing my wardrobe based on the wonderful advice you gave about colours and the five levels of business attire. I also made sure to tell Doug that your session was the most beneficial for the class.

I am very excited to read, watch, and learn more through your website.

“I attended numerous workshops on the theme of effective communication in the past. However, Paul’s presentation easily surpassed all the others. His approach to an arguably hackneyed topic is refreshing and erudite; his material is innovative and substantial; his standards are extremely high. He is clearly passionate about his work and transmits his enthusiasm to his audience. The response from our group, which consisted of young lawyers, was extremely favourable. ”

“…attended the event that Scotia held about 3 or 4 years ago for WCM called the “Art of the Cocktail”. It is still one of my favourite learning experiences and one I often quote from to share my networking tips with various WCM members. Lynne comes highly recommended and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with her again for another WCM event.”

We had four very successful conferences across the county, and I want to thank you for your significant contribution to the success.  It is amazing where you lead us, Lynne: it doesn’t matter where I go around the office they are talking about where to place the napkin and  how to eat the soup. Again many thanks.
