client comments

GBC Law engaged Maria's organizational coaching services in 2017 to assist with conflict resolution within our firm. Maria provided us with a useful  assessment of the issue and helped us improve our organizational structure and leadership model to resolve the issue through alignment with the firm's vision, values, and goals. She worked with our firm at all levels and was a positive resource to all of us. Over the next couple of years, Maria also helped us with a myriad of services including strategic planning, leadership and managerial coaching, organizational capacity analysis, conflict coaching, hr issues, recruitment, and performance evaluation. She is a tremendous asset to any organization needing the services of a coach and a change management professional.

-- Greg Greiner, Founder, GBC Law

​"I had the pleasure of working with Maria on 11 events over five years. The events included a series of workshops that grew from a small select group of participants to over 185 people from 10 countries, and two gala evenings highlighting high profile Chefs. Maria’s role ranged from working with hotel and meeting venues, supporting speakers and Chefs, managing participant registrations, all of the “day-of” logistics, and the myriad of wrap-up details that inevitably follow an event. She very capably managed all of these details, but where Maria really shines is in her efforts to meet the needs of event participants. In our post-event satisfaction surveys, meeting organization was always ranked very high, and Maria was often acknowledged as the reason for this.  Maria was a key member of our team and key to our successful events."

"I worked with Maria over several months; her coaching was invaluable to me and my focus to visualize and improve my future. I sincerely recommend Maria as a professional or personal coach if you care about bringing out the best in yourself and the people around you, while at the same time clarifying your vision.  I am very thankful for the opportunity to work with Maria … she is the type of person that makes our world a better place."

"Maria has been indispensable with three of The Bloom Group's most important events. She has the ability to draw out the purpose, culture and nuance necessary to deliver a truly exceptional experience.  As an effortless organizer, staff and volunteer manager and a creative director she can adapt to the needs of any team. Her glowing personality and endless sense of humour always carries the day. She makes an event sing!"

- Lesley Anderson, Former Director of Resource Development, The Bloom Group

"It was a pleasure having Maria as a member of our recruiting team. Whether she was screening applicants or contacting and scheduling candidates or joining us as a member of the interview panel, Maria was always professional, courteous, responsive and friendly. Maria’s intuition and good sense of people played a big part in recruiting people who were, and still are, a good fit with our organization."
