“Passionate, caring, innovative, dedicated and ‘Excellence at Execution’ ” are some of the words that I would say to describe accurately Christine’s performance when it comes to design and delivery of high quality learning programs for front line staff and managers. Christine was responsible for creating and delivering sales and service training programs for staff and managers at over 200 retail shops in Canada and the USA. Her efforts led her to be recognized as developing the Best Employee Training Program by both the Retail Council of Canada and the National Ski Areas Association. The “School of Magic and Logic” is one of my finest memories of our time at Intrawest.”

I participated in the first Magic & Logic retail rental program in Whistler Blackhomb facilitated by Christine. We trained hard, went over best practices and components needed to develop and grow our individual teams. I can not tell you the impact Christine’s passion, leadership styles and sheer positive energy that she led this very large task with. She inspired me in more ways than any trainer ever had prior! I left that week with more knowledge and drive to bring back to our team to facilitate the same type of program at our resort and to this day, still use “her” techniques. She truly inspires teamwork, dedication and developing winning teams and driving successful stories. I would highly recommend Christine to any organization, you truly don’t know the impact of what your business is missing until she is a part of your team”

“Christine is a gifted trainer and developer of people. Her innate enthusiasm and people skills are extraordinary. I knew her as a highly knowledgeable, results-driven retailer with a passion for measuring results, setting objective targets, and then training individuals and building teams to achieve “stretch” goals. Christine has a knack for deeply understanding complex processes, then breaking them down into clear training prescriptions. I saw Intrawest colleagues advance and become more effective managers and executives thanks to her training leadership. We viewed Christine as a strong executive and training specialist within Intrawest, able to extend the people development skills she developed in the retail sector well beyond the company’s retail “world”. I recommend Christine without qualification and with enthusiasm.”

During our time at Intrawest Christine developed a strong reputation for making a difference from her early days in retail with award winning accolades to working across our vast network with a title that pertained to training…but we all knew was about culture and kool-aid.
