"I have taken a great deal of courses while working for the City of Burlington (since 2009) and this is one of the best experiences I have had. Sandra has a way to innovatively bring her messages across that lights up our proverbial light bulbs. In fact, there were so many classes where students had that “aha moment”; some more than others. For me, I truly enjoyed her variety of activities, video clips, and the notes she carefully orchestrated together for us to build our leadership competence. "

"Tim, I would like to thank you for such great learning experience that I had during this course discussing so many different subjects. Great content, great presentations. An extra plus, having Mike as a teacher was a big bonus! He dedicated his time so many times to discuss offline some of the subjects, to clarify things, and to provide examples which would bring clarity. I have to say the interaction and exchange of documentation between Mike and I was amazing, opening up my eyes even more on how and what to watch for in the movies, while reading articles, the message being there just to be discovered. Students should be more than fortunate to have him as a teacher, he has vast experience and knowledge, lots to offer to people that like to develop. Million thanks!"

"I had a pleasure having Carrie as my mentor and adviser for the period of 6 months. She had played a major role in my career and personal development given her extensive experience and knowledge in HR industry. Carrie inspired me to push myself out of my comfort zone and to persevere. I believe my success is at least in part due to her sincere support and encouragement. I am incredibly grateful for her understanding of the industry on fundamental level and truly value everything I have learned from her. "

"One of the best professional decisions I have ever made was to join the MentorCity program that I found on the HRPA website. After reviewing some of the mentor candidates’ profiles, I decided to ask Carrie Deon to become my mentor. I chose her because her profile resembled mine, a change in career midway through life. She had made a successful switch and I was struggling with how to make that change. Working with Carrie has been an enriching experience, both personally and professionally. She has generously invested her time, experiences and knowledge with me and I have gained immeasurably due to her investments. In Carrie, I feel that I have gained a trustworthy supporter, a confidant, an advocate and an ally. I am entering this new stage of my professional life with a renewed career energy and hope because of Carrie’s support. The biggest complement that I can pay to Carrie is this, this relationship has inspired me to pay it forward, I hope to become a mentor to someone who is in the beginning of their HR professional life when I’m able to do so."
