"It was a pleasure working with you, Audie. Thank you for being so accommodating and for all your help. The workshop was very unique compared to the ones I have attended in the past. I liked how informal and intimate the experience felt and I will definitely be applying some of those tips at my next networking event. "

"Collaborating with MCE to host a Business After 5 Networking Event, in conjunction with their Open House at their Stoney Creek Mohawk College Campus, yielded a great turnout and a rich networking environment. Mohawk College President, Ron McKerlie, brought greetings and MCE President, Audie McCarthy, and her MCE team were gracious and inspiring hosts. We look forward to working with Mohawk/MCE on future programming and networking opportunities.”"

"As an Instructor for PEMAC for the past 12 years, I have seen tremendous growth in the knowledge and confidence level of hundreds of maintenance personnel across Canada and especially here in Southern Ontario. The eight modules provided by PEMAC escalates the knowledge of the students in all areas of maintenance, finance, HR and production. In doing so, they gain an enhanced understanding of the big picture and how maintenance contributes to the profitability of their company. Through new approaches to increased effectiveness and efficiency, these Maintenance Management Professionals (MMP) learn that maintenance is far more than just fixing assets and running Preventive Maintenance programs. I encourage all managers and executives to support your maintenance staff to participate in this extensive program so they can help you remain competitive, increase profits and add value to your organization."
- Roger Davies, President, Da-trol Group Inc. (1987), Maintenance Management Specialists
"The MCE Future Ready Leadership (FRL) course was one of the most worthwhile courses PHRI has ever given me the opportunity to attend. I reference the course teachings frequently and try to implement tools and processes learned as much as possible in my projects and teams. I can also say that at group meetings with other FRL’ers, people are implementing the learnings from the course too.”"
- Alex Grinvalds, Research Coordinator, PHRI
"The time is now to ensure the City of Hamilton is taking proactive steps to develop our future leaders. The Future Ready Leadership program provided effective leadership development for the Planning & Economic Development Department. MCE worked with us to create a truly unique program which allowed the integration of Soft Skills Leadership development and Project Management training and consulting which culminated in participants working and closing out real City projects. This unique program combined two major developmental needs and blended them to achieve maximum success for both participants and their management teams. The facilitators were second to none and the team at MCE always went above and beyond to make this program the best fit for us."
- Marty Hazell, Senior Director, Strategic Initiatives, Planning and Economic Development, City of Hamilton
