Continuous Improvement Manager
You hit a home run when we tasked you with customizing and presenting one of the most important issues for our organization – Job Instruction: Train-the-Trainer workshop. Your workshop was custom tailored to our needs and on target! You have outfitted our operator trainers with skills, information, and practical experience to become effective on-the-job workplace trainers.

It was a very enjoyable presentation which I found had a great mix of facts, quotes, exercises and discussions. I was very happy and extremely pleased to see that BOTH parts of my life are being recognized as important and relevant to being balanced in both environments.
I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed today’s workshop (on Time Management). I tend to get bored and distracted easily and I found that your workshop was fast-paced and energetic – always a good sign!

The Effective Communication Workshop was helpful for both personal and professional workplaces. You are a very effective facilitator and you lead by example, through how you presented the information and seminars. I would love to participate in other seminars that you conduct.

Very useful information. There was a great deal more interaction and great participation with the other workshop attendees then I was expecting. It was good to get other people’s perspective during the workshop activities. I found the workbook, handout material and the many concepts introduced to be most valuable. The DVD was also entertaining and informative.
I enjoyed the facilitator (Joanne Royce) and the discussion of business ethics which I believe is an extremely important topic in today’s society and organizations. The session was very thought provoking and provided some useful tools to take back and implement in my own workplace.
I recommended you as the speaker for this important event based on my own experience as a participant in your workshop last January. Your workshop material was relevant, interesting, thought-provoking and easy to apply to my own business. Thank you again for your excellent workshop!

The Time Management Workshop was excellent. I wish it was longer. The practical tools can be applied immediately. I liked the self evaluation that was without labels and judgement.
The Stress in the Workplace provided fantastic information and Joanne is very personable. I found the tools introduced to cope with stress to be most valuable.
You made great use of multi-media to present content during Time Management for Team Leaders and Supervisors workshop. You are a very knowledgeable instructor and are insightful. Thank you, Joanne!

Vice President – Sheridan Student Union
You are receiving this letter because you have been given a leaf. What does that mean? It means that you are doing something great, and one or more students you come into contact with want to recognize you. The student union put together a Tree of Appreciation, and gave students the opportunity to say Thank You to the people who made their year a great one. So on behalf of the students, I would like to say it again. Thank you for all your work and the contribution that you have made.
