Joanne, I was speaking with a student in our Fast Track program who recently accepted a Manager role within PWC. In debriefing the year, she shared with me that your session changed her life (her words) and that she's taken on an entirely new approach to how she presents herself since then. It was a very powerful testimonial so wanted to pass that along.
The Dining for Success DVD is valuable tool for our organization and an important resource that forms part of our training library. The feedback from attendees has been excellent, with staff and management feeling that they picked up some great tips and tricks.
The sessions your firm conducted across Canada on Personal Effectiveness and Networking were exceptional. We have already seen changes in the way our staff are presenting themselves and how they are approaching their business relationships.
I would like to thank you for the exceptional Style for Success seminar that you provided for our students. Interest in another session has grown exponentially amongst our student body, and it looks like we will have to find room in our budget to have you back in the future!
With a Support Staff comprised of over 700 people in varying positions from Administrative Assistants to Maintenance workers, relevant professional development can be a challenge. Thank you Joanne for presenting "Etiquette to Wow" as it was an excellent solution for our varied audience. Your engaging, interactive speaking style kept everyone attentive and smiling. More often than not, manners and etiquette separate the 'good' from the 'great'. You have helped us to become better people.
I enjoy networking and thought the content of this presentation would be all common sense and things I already knew about but was I ever wrong! All of the content was new, fresh and invaluable.
It was a pleasure to have you back by popular demand. As one delegate commented, 'it made the conference well worth it all on its own'. I would highly recommend your programs to any group looking for conference and convention presentations.
We count ourselves very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Style for Success for over 10 years. With the overwhelming positive response to your sessions, we are always pleased to welcome you back year after year. We appreciate your efforts in customizing your sessions for our audience and because of that, our members find your sessions engaging, refreshing and informative. You provide them with tools and new perspectives that they can use in their professional and personal life.
Thank you Style for Success! We look forward to continuing to work with you.
I was in one of your business etiquette seminars at Grant McEwan University and you inspired me to start networking which has subsequently resulted in recent career advances for me.
Usually we don’t usually invite trainers back two years in a row, however this time we have because of the overwhelming success of Joanne & Terry’s etiquette and image seminars at last year’s ‘Homesteader University’. We were proud that our staff fully utilized the skills taught by Style for Success during our European business trip. We would recommend their training to any company that recognizes employees are their best assets and wants to invest in team building and personal /professional development.
We are so fortunate to have been able to foster and continue to develop such a special relationship with Style for Success over the years. The insights and advice you bring to the students with the Top of Class - Dining Etiquette Dinner presentation are the highlight of our year. Even as seasoned co-op students the CESA Executive always comes away with new knowledge of the workforce and branding ideas. Thank you for all you have done to contribute to this wonderful event.
Thank you for the excellent workshops conducted for the staff of Ready Engineering. I believe that if all engineers practiced the principles taught by Style for Success, it would do our profession a world of good – they would be more valuable to their employers and rewarded through greater remuneration.
We were so impressed with the Style for Success workshops that we decided to bring them in to work with our own team. Their rich customer service content and valuable tools delivered immediate, tangible benefits for our organization.
The initial feedback from the group has been very positive and disappointing at the same time. Disappointing that you did not speak longer! Thank you so much Joanne for making the conference such a huge success!! We really appreciated how you tied your presentation into this year’s conference theme. Your presentation was very insightful, a reminder that it is the small details that matter and dare I say even life changing.
Worth the investment! Good insights into the networking techniques. Very practical and helpful.
Your presentation at our women’s conference was exactly what we were looking for. We have received nothing but positive feedback from our participants.
It was a pleasure to meet and work with you. Your warmth and humor imbues your work, and we thoroughly enjoyed having you as our keynote speaker.
Joanne was delightful to work with and our members thoroughly enjoyed her two presentations “Build Stronger Client and Colleague Relationships with Etiquette Wow” and “Connecting with Conversation Strategies”. Our organization received lots of positive feedback from attendees who are most eager to have Joanne back to present in the future.
I want to thank you for the superlative presentation you delivered to our staff regarding the matter of personal branding. Your presentation was first class and our staff's response was that of overwhelming satisfaction. Thank you for assisting us with this delicate topic.
Your energy and charisma were a perfect complement to our theme, 'The Secret to Success.' It was wonderful meeting you in person, Joanne. I trust you will keep us in mind for future events and conferences. We would be more than happy to welcome you back.
I can’t tell you how many times I have used the Dining For Success video program during our MBA orientation classes. I even had an alumnus call me to tell me he had accepted a prestigious dinner invitation and thought of me all night because he had full confidence he was doing it right. It doesn’t get better than that!
Your Dining for Success presentation livened up our dinner and was an entertaining hit with our retreat attendees. I would highly recommend it to any professional group looking for a fun and informative conference lunch or dinner presentation.
As you will see from the survey results, your Stand Out with Image presentation was a resounding success. Thank you for your valuable contribution to a successful Secretaries’ PD.
I met Joanne Blake when we both were speaking at an Engineering conference and she just dazzled! I became an instant fan. Joanne has dedicated her career in the business of helping individuals with their image and business etiquette. She is a collaborative professional who has a way of speaking that is comfortable, but effective with others.
I would highly recommend your services to any conference regardless of industry type. All should appreciate your dynamic team presentation style on such important business topics as professionalism in dress and demeanor. Many of our delegates commented that everyone should attend these sessions.
The impact of your fun and engaging session was evident throughout the Conference as the delegates were able to utilize the tools and strategies that you provided to them to meet our key conference objectives including networking, relationship building and knowledge exchange. Your professionalism, organization and attention to detail was evident throughout the planning and delivery of the session. It was a pleasure to be able to work with you and thank you for contributing to the success of our Conference! - Alberta Sport Connection - Marvin Dobish
On behalf of my team at the Chartered Accountants Education Foundation, I want to thank you for speaking at the Diving Into Business conference. We are so pleased with the way your presentation was tailored to meet the students’ needs. We believe the day will make a lasting impact on the students and will help them as they move forward with their careers. Throughout the time leading up the event, your cooperation was very much appreciated and you were fun to work with!
Thank you, Joanne and Terry. Your networking workshop exceeded our expectations. I have heard nothing but positive feedback from our scientists. They felt it expanded their skill set and enabled them to interact more effectively at the symposium with one another and externally with other professionals as well.
Your seminar helped us to raise the bar with respect to how employees are presenting themselves with clients and one another. In the days following your presentation there was lots of buzz with everyone analyzing what they were wearing according to the clothing levels you shared. The etiquette skills have assisted our team to be more confident when hosting visitors at our place of work. Thank you for presenting a potentially dry subject in such a fun and engaging manner.
