"Leadership is a journey of professional growth and development, building on ways to enhance and inspire teams. The Future Ready Leadership program provides key resources and practical information to developing and improving upon skills for leaders in the workforce. By delving into and providing insights on effective leadership development, our trainer was able to administer and encourage a deeper conceptualization of exceptional leadership. Throughout this program, I was able to develop and explore new concepts aimed at motivating, inspiring and building team unity through effective leadership. Building on the foundations I already possessed, Future Ready Leadership enhanced my skills, while providing current and practical applications to effective leadership, which I use in my everyday work environment. This program is exceptionally beneficial to new and experienced leaders, with practical and effective applications for leadership skills building."

"For me the FRL training provided new ways for me to approach challenges at work, as well as the confidence to put theory into practice. Sandra and Jack created an exceptional environment for learning and I looked forward to each session. Following the program I enjoyed watching my coworkers use their new skills in their day to day responsibilities. I have also maintained the contacts and network created with the participants from other municipalities who were in the same cohort. "
- Karen Dropko, Director of HR, County of Brant
"The Future Ready Leadership program was an amazing opportunity to gain practice and confidence in a variety of leadership skills in a safe environment, led by outstanding facilitators, Jack and Sandra. As former Director of HR, MCE staff were always great to work with and always willing to adapt or customize the training to suit our organization’s needs."

"Audie's workshops are a great experience for newcomers to Canada because she listens to their needs and tailors the content to help them achieve their networking for employment goals. She really is an exceptional facilitator because she offers support to participants outside of the classroom. She is willing to connect with them on LinkedIn and share her extensive network, and often continues to connect with and mentor participants long after the workshop has completed."

"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. "
- Jamie Rychard, FRL Graduate
"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!"
