Testimonials (4)

Martin Osmond, CEO and Scientific Director (RI) and Vice-President, Research | CHEO Research Institute and Vice-President, Research, CHEO – Hired Linda for Strategic Planning & Facilitation

"A BIG THANK YOU for the excellent retreat. You masterfully kept us focused, educated us on process and brought us to consensus."

Mark Rochon, President and CEO | Toronto Rehabilitation Institute – Hired Linda for numerous events across organizations and years

“Linda has provided tremendous assistance to me and three organizations that I have led. She is a skilled facilitator who understands the importance of each organization’s unique mission. Through a combination of insightful questions, practical tools, relevant experience and a sense of humour she helps groups come to common agreement and commitment. I highly recommend Linda.”

Tracey Newlands, Project Director | VIHA Staff Safety and Injury Prevention

"Linda creates a safe atmosphere using humor, powerful stories and focused attention to challenge participants thinking, develop future possibilities and generate hope and energy to move forward. She is supportive of the group process but can also corral diverse opinions and conflict in a positive way to generate even better alternatives. She is masterful at what she does and a joy to learn from!"

Margaret Lerhe, Director of Learning | Bruyère Continuing Care

"Over the years I have worked with many facilitators, but Linda is the most exceptional. Once she engages with your organization (strategic planning, team building or management development), it is almost impossible to find another facilitator who meets her high standard. She gets the job done with humor and professionalism, gaining trust with the most challenging individuals and groups. I have tremendous confidence in Linda's skills and have drawn on her expertise in my past three organizations."
