Testimonials


"We wanted to express our gratitude for helping Friday’s event at the Journey to Churchill to be such a huge success.  I received a lot of positive comments about your speech and how it was a perfect complement to the Young Leaders program…..and the evening.   It was a fun and successful night!"

Certified Technicians and Technologists Association of Manitoba

"Priti: Thank you very much.  We are overhauling our Board descriptions and this is timely.  I wanted to also thank you for an excellent presentation at the EO PDF last week.  Your discussion was invaluable in and of itself, however, the points you raised stimulated a great deal of discussion afterwards among the participants and this is of at least equal value, so we effectively got ‘double the bang for the buck’ from your talk.  Well done!"

I had occasion to accompany members of my family to a Farm Debt Mediation led by Priti Shah. She was clear in setting out the parameters of the process and in summarizing the areas of consensus. She created an atmosphere which facilitated building that consensus, and my father and brothers, like myself, found the mediation to be a positive experience that led to creative and workable solutions.”

Following the training she helped us to identify what we needed to do as an organization to move forward in this area as a workplace. Many years later we consider Priti's work with our organization to have been an important catalyst for very positive, long term improvements to our workplace culture.

Recently we invited Priti to design and deliver a presentation to representatives from a variety of workplaces during a two day workshop on "Creating A Respectful Workplace" sponsored by the Occupational Health Centre. She has a strong ability to clearly communicate complex information in an understandable and engaging way. Workshop participants evaluated Priti's presentation very positively and greatly benefited from her knowledge and experience."
