"Candy’s workshops have brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our organization. We are consistently receiving outstanding reviews and it never fails someone always asks “when is Candy coming back?” It all started when Candy facilitated one workshop 4 years ago and we immediately saw the impact it had on our management team. With Candy’s drive to better support our organization, she is now presenting a 3 part series several times a year for us."

Thank you!”
