C. Doucette Training and Communications Inc.
We were very impressed with Catherine’s workshop. She took the time to get to know our business and prepare properly. This allowed her to engage our staff and speak in their language. She quickly found the pressure points and helped everyone find ways to better communicate in stressful times. We will have Catherine again in the future and would highly recommend her to others.
