Gabriella applied meticulous writing and design skills to create several end products for the launch of a new HRIS, Payroll and Time/Attendance system. The materials she created were user-friendly and extremely functional. She also conducted webinars across various user group audiences to enable employees to adopt the new systems and processes. Gabriella was easy to work with, professional, and very organized. I welcome future opportunities to work with Gabriella as we expand the breadth and functionality of our HR systems.

Working with Gabriella on the PLAR project was definitely one of the best experiences I have had in my current role. The assessment tool she created is instrumental in guiding foreign trained professionals to acquire Canadian credentials and build a successful career. Gabriella was prompt and thorough in delivering an assessment tool that we truly considered a masterpiece!

Gabriella’s experience and expertise shone through her Leadership course in Humber College’s Fire Services Senior Management program. She brought a high level of professionalism to the classroom, much appreciated by the students. Her positive and upbeat demeanor created a great learning environment and I highly recommend Gabriella for her program development and facilitation skills.

Thank you for the great session. I learned a tremendous amount and although I am not job searching it has allowed me to reflect on my career direction and current position. After sitting down with my CAO to discuss my professional development plan, I have a better idea of what the Township is looking for and they have a better idea of my direction. This will make for a much more cohesive working arrangement. Thanks again. I will highly recommend your program.
