Andrea from Alberta

The speakers were really personable and I appreciated them sharing their personal life experiences. It sounds like they really understand the topic as they practice the techniques themselves.

Rosie from Ontario

This webinar gave some very great practical tips but also explained the reasons for using the strategies. I enjoyed the comfortable relational approach to presenting.

Kathy from Alberta

Your webinar was very timely. I caught myself on Sunday being very irritable (snippy, critical, harsh with my husband). I realized I was simply exhausted and gave myself permission to 'not work', have a nap, do some baking, go for a walk, chat with neighbors. Because I 'nipped it in the bud', I had a wonderful day and was rested, ready for Monday.

Margarita from Michigan

Everyone needs Dr. Bill Howett's research-based wisdom. Why not embrace his clearly-presented mindsets and little steps needed to achieve mental fitness. Here's to happiness, mindfulness, and mental fitness!

Tanya from Ontario

These sessions are amazing. Very few people think about the topics presented in these sessions on a regular basis, yet not giving these topics due treatment can result in directionless, pain filled lives. Thank you so very much for sharing!

Chee de Visser from BC

One of the best seminars I attended recently

Richard from BC

This is a very well run and organized webinar.  Timely information for oneself to deal with all that is going on and it respects time lines.  Plenty of information packed into a short window.  Thank you.

Emily from Alberta

This webinar series is teaching the right practical skills at the right time. One of the best series I've seen that is impactful for me as an individual and for organizations. Thank you team!

Sandra from Alberta

This series is one of the best resources available. Why? Because it delivers credible, fact based content in a personal and practical way. What is shared is relevant for me in my personal and professional lives. I particularly appreciate the micro approach - a narrow focus is easy to follow, actions are doable, and in a tight, 30 minute format. Excellent!

Kim from Alberta

These weekly webinars are packed with information needed to survive this pandemic. Thank you to everyone involved in scheduling them!

Christine from Alberta

I really look forward to these webinars each week! There are many valuable tools provided to help me manage through challenges I am faced with both professionally and personally.

Lyn from Alberta

I just finished my 6th week working at home at these webinars have given me a positive outlook.

Stacey from Ontario

I have attended your presentations and I think they are very good.

Rosie from Ontario

I just have to say thanks again for inviting me to these webinars. Today was the best yet and they were all very good!
