My Clients

Several of my clients (see below) have availed of one or more of these programs to subsidize the cost of hiring me as a professional facilitator, or to subsidize training costs to attend one of my workshops. I personally have used the Canada-NL Job Grant funding program to access some professional development for myself. If you are interested in attending one of my workshops visit the Calendar of Events to see what is upcoming. To discuss your facilitation needs, drop me an email or give me a call. ~ Carole
