“Nominated for 2016 Ontario Premier’s Award for Community Services by Sheridan College”
I have had the privileged of contracting Charmaine as a facilitator for internal staff development activities and as a presenter for annual conferences. Charmaine's attention to detail and time lines makes my job easy. She is loved by the participants with her being one of our #1 pics in presenters. One participant commented, "I walked away feeling overwhelmed but having the tool I can actually use instead of a bunch of theory that is seemingly unattainable."
We have worked with Charmaine Hammond for a number of years now. She has presented at IPM Conferences and events across Canada with rave reviews and repeated success. Charmaine is also a regular expert contributor for our IPM Associations Members Quarterly Newsletters in print and online. She is most knowledgeable on the subject matter, an engaging and dynamic speaker and brings new ideas to the podium each time. She is punctual, always ready to assist and truly a delight to work with! We look forward to the pleasure of working with Charmaine for years to come.
"Charmaine was an excellent facilitator! Her process helped our group see the forest for the trees. We went from being a group with clear conviction, but no real vision, to one with a focus, clear goals and renewed energy. We are now confident that we have the skills to meet our goals and to continually set new ones for the future. Charmaine was invaluable in helping us put this process in perspective."
Not only did our staff have fun with Charmaine, we came away with individual action plans to help us work more effectively within our teams based on our own working styles. Not only that, but Charmaine followed up with post-workshop reminders that helped us keep the material fresh. Alberta Milk will invite Charmaine back and would recommend Charmaine’s session to any group looking to improve their team dynamics.
I had the pleasure of attending Charmaine’s workshops at our annual conference. Charmaine’s advice and tools she uses for ethical decision making can be applied to any profession and also to our daily lives. Charmaine also facilitated a discussion group and was excellent at setting the boundaries for discussion. That is definitely something which I have taken away is the need to have boundaries in potentially challenging situations both in your personal and professional life. Thanks Charmaine!
