I am a communication trainer, workshop leader and a certified communication coach.

I have been designing and leading seminars for 30 years in Canada, the United States and France, helping thousands of business professionals to communicate more effectively.

My current focus is on expanding awareness of the unique challenges of communicating across cultures and the importance of developing an intercultural communication skill set.That is vital when working within an international business context at home or abroad.

A few client testimonials:

The workshop explains well the differences (verbal, non-verbal, attitudes) between the French and English cultures. I hadn’t realized there were so many differences between the two cultures. Now I know how to better transmit the message I want the listener to get.— Thierry, NVIDIA

Compact and complete insight into the ways we talk to each other in any context and sharing cultural differences in order to find mutual understanding. — Stéphanie, Genactis
