Corporate Testimonials

“In May 2009, Ignite Potentials offered a 1-hour keynote entitled “Thriving In Uncertain Times” to a group of Nortel employees within Ottawa. This session was coordinated by a Nortel employee grassroots engagement team (Ottawa CrossConnect Team) in an effort to help empower fellow employees during difficult times. After a couple collaborative discussions, Ignite Potentials developed a session tailored specifically for us which introduced some of their success principles. The session was instructor-led with some interactive exercises engaging the audience. Overall, the ideas, principals and suggestions provided during the session were quite relevant to our situation and was well received by those who attended. Some of the comments from employees included they felt the presentation was exactly what they needed; offering them practical advice for taking control at a time when they felt “out of control” and was a welcome event that addressed their personal fears by showcasing the power of positive thinking. Thank you to Ignite Potentials for this powerful session!”

“I am very thankful to Ignite Potentials Training who infused so much energy into our group.  After returning from the workshop, we each shared what we gained from the training and then shared the comments with the Management Group. It was amazingly motivating.  Everyone is unanimous that we should do more of this kind of training. I strongly recommend the corporate training offered by Ignite Potentials Training.

We will definitely keep in touch.  Thank you so much!”

“The workshop delivered by Ignite Potentials was excellent. They are dynamic speakers and communicate their message in a professional manner. I was impressed with all the information and examples that we covered in such a short time. The Ignite trainers managed to keep everyone interested, involved and motivated for the full day. We learned a great deal about ourselves and our subconscious, but we also discovered things about our colleagues. I would not hesitate to recommend Ignite Potentials Training; we are still feeling the energy weeks later.”

“As a Consultant / Trainer in the ICT sector, I face the challenge of displacing positive energy and motivational attributes on a constant basis to individuals who have recently lost their jobs.  To many of those individuals their job was their “livelihood” and the “bread” for the family. Many individuals attach their sense of being to their employment.  It is imperative that I find the balance and energy within myself for the good of my clients. This can be very draining on many people, I found that the seminar I attended given by Ignite Potentials gave me the confidence and “power within” to harness the ability to re-energize myself, no matter what is happening in my personal life to be strong, not only for myself, but for my clients.

The manner and energy shared by the professionals from Ignite Potentials is irreplaceable if anyone is searching for ways of tapping inner strength to face today’s challenges; professionally, personally or financially!  

The depth of credibility and knowledge shown throughout their presentation is very well researched, thought out and delivered in an orderly fashion. Not only do they show the class how to help themselves, but I truly believe by their mannerisms, analogies and stories that they truly “practice what they preach”.   If anyone has the opportunities to meet these professionals from Ignite Professionals, I highly recommend it.  You can’t help but come away with something that will work in your life on all fronts.”

“August 2009:  I was impressed with the Ignite Potentials seminar, Thriving in Times of Challenge, hosted by Nortel’s Ottawa Cross-connect Team (a grassroots employee engagement initiative)!   This dynamic seminar was very honest, to the point, and downright practical.  The Ignite Potentials leaders have the experience and sensitivity in effectively communicating at a human level, even when folks feel vulnerable.  They drive shift to embrace positive thinking, gratitude, and fulfillment.  I’ve recommended the seminar (e.g. web play-back) to folks in my organization across North America, which was received with heartfelt appreciation; they too welcomed the success principles for taking personal charge.  As a pioneer that thrives in expanding the world’s frontiers, I thank Ignite Potentials for provoking new insights for my journey!”
