The Lafarge Canada Performance Day Seminar in February 2020 had people development at the core of its messaging. A session on EVP (Employee Value Propositioning) saw our guest speaker Tina Varughese address the team on the important topic of Unconscious Bias and how it can impact the workplace. Tina brought a fresh, energetic, and challenging approach to this topic. Her use of real-life examples, life experience, and well-placed humour was perfectly balanced. She engaged her audience and delivered a thought-provoking message that was well delivered and received.
