A Few Testimonials
“Yvonne provided our keynote and was a technical session speaker at our Annual CMA Conference in May 2010. The feedback from our 300 delegates was excellent. She has a refreshing view of workplace relationships and she communicated her message on leadership approaches in a clear and understandable way. Yvonne was very enthusiastic, professional, personable, interesting and motivating”
Ronald M. Stoesz, CMA, FCMA Chief Executive Officer CMA Manitoba
Yvonne’s presentation skills are excellent and her ability to recognize situations or opportunities to engage people on an issue is excellent. She has a strong insight in reading people and their issues. One thing I really appreciated about how she handled herself in front of our group was how humble she was at times in relating to her past and how she learned from various personal events or situations. We will work together with Yvonne again.”
