Beverlie Stuart

Vice President, Business and Organizational Development at Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology

As a VP at Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology, when I attended the workshop with Nicole Harris and Solv Communications, one of the first things that I felt was a level of confidence and that was because I felt that I had a personal coach right there with me throughout their training. I communicate every day in the work that I do but I was always nervous when it came to media interviews, until I took media training with Nicole Harris.
