You rock! Loved your sense of humour, was so refreshing! It was a great reminder for me to take care of myself.

This is a must for anyone who is in the ‘people’ business whether it’s real estate, healthcare, oil and gas, banking or city hall – it applies.

Director, Alberta Real Estate Association

Your session was the fuel I needed. I’ve been saying for at least a year now that I want to specialize in the “New to Canada” market. I had fear of not knowing enough or saying the right things. Well, that has changed! Thank you Tina for a wonderful session!

Ever since your training employees have been happier and the atmosphere at Canterbury has been so much friendlier. The morale of our organization has definitely moved up a notch or two or three!!! I must thank you, Tina, for all that you have done for Canterbury.

Tina was entertaining, confident and demonstrated experience and knowledge in the area. My favourite part was when she incorporated specific examples of cultural differences.

Thank you Tina for your incredibly informative and impactful session. All of our staff learned so much and we are excited about implementing some of the crosscultural communication strategies we learned. I really appreciate how you related to all participants with humour and grace.

You are incredibly motivating, energetic and one of the best keynote speakers I saw that day. I would really love to share what you told us with my executive team.

Sometimes people cross your path and make a difference in the direction you are going. Interestingly you did this for me with your ‘work-life’ balance presentation. You have such a charismatic way of presenting your topic! Your sense of humor and your personal experience brought your presentation to life. You made accountants laugh… imagine.

Anyone in the legal arena would benefit from this seminar. Tina created understanding in each topic through concrete examples. She was very engaging, energetic and has excellent presentation skills. Her seminar evaluations were through the roof – every participant gave her an ‘excellent’ instructor rating and could ‘confidently’ recommend her seminar. I look forward to using her practical strategies and effective communication
methods with my clients.

Tina is one of those rare finds – unique, refreshing, and has a positive high impact on those she works with. She knows just the right approach to fit the audience and is not afraid to push to get to the heart of the matter. She holds you accountable, makes you think at a deeper level and truly demonstrates how much she cares. We will rely on her again in the future, for sure.

I can’t say that I have ever enjoyed a speaker as much I enjoyed you. You are witty, charming, funny, and engaging. You have inspired me. Well done.

DEBORAH DAVY
Director, Tourism Toronto

Your morning keynote ‘Communicate with the Cross-Cultural Advantage’ rated 4.8/5 as did the afternoon workshop, ‘Recruiting and Retaining Foreign Workers for Success and Sustainability’. This is excellent since the audience was quite a mix of people from the entire production chain. I had nothing but rave reviews and will be referring you to anyone looking for a speaker on cross-culture topics. It was informative AND fun…nice to have participants leave on a high note!

Tina Varughese is a master at helping business people feel at ease and engaging in conversations about the cultural differences that we never talk about. In fact, she makes it fun. She’ll help improve employee retention, sales, service, marketing and corporate social media.

Your session was the fuel I needed. I’ve been saying for at least a year now that I want to specialize in the “New to Canada” market. I had fear of not knowing enough or not saying the right things. Well that has changed! You’re a very good facilitator-you enunciate well and keep the group engaged by changing activities often. Thank-you Tina for a wonderful session!

Within the first ten minutes I had learned something that would make my work productive and make it easier for others to relate to me. There is unbelievable scope to this seminar, it is a must see for anyone who is in the “people” business whether it’s real estate, healthcare, oil and gas, banking or city hall – it applies.
