Valerie you did an amazing job at keeping our audience attentive and engaged!Speaking from the heart with sincerity, honesty and genuine passion, you shared both your knowledge and unique gift of communication to connect with each member. Dealing with a difficult and sensitive topic with the skill of Wayne Gretzky stick handling a puck, it was obvious that you had done your homework and had a very real understanding of, and connection with, those in the room.
As testament to your talents as an orator, interspersed with keen insights and real-life tips, you were able to weave in humour and anecdotes as you imparted wisdom, comforted with inspiration, and you gave us the tools necessary for implementation. A five star presentation!
Energetic, encouraging, inspiring, warm, caring and funny, Valerie you are an incredible person whose spirit, gifts and talents are well suited to every audience. You took the time to learn about our members and customized the program in such a way that was meaningful for all – and your efforts clearly paid off.

First of all Valerie, may I once again thank you for your outstanding preparation, “above the bar” presentation with awesome style and relevance, and the complete acceptance and admiration of each and every one of our Pharmacy group attendees at our conference. Over the past 18 years, you are the first one who helped us not only gain an insight in going from “first class to world class”, who adrenalized our motivations to come forward, but most importantly, made us feel better about ourselves. And you did it in such a naturally genuine “conversational” style. Thank you!
