Deborah A Fillippe, CHRL VP Human Resources at Kenaidan Contracting Ltd

We have had the pleasure of working with Cindy Stradling to source several top notch consultants to assist us with the design and delivery of a variety of Learning and Development and HR Programs. Through this successful collaboration we have truly appreciated Cindy’s very high standards for members of her network, the drive and energy she brings to her work and most importantly her strong commitment to understanding and meeting the needs of her clients.

Gary Grant, CHRL Director, Talent Management and Training at Metro Inc.

Cindy has been a terrific resource to Metro! She met with us to clearly understand our needs then provided us with a shortlist of top-quality trainers for us to meet. The whole process was simple and seamless, and it saved us a lot of time in sourcing companies with specific skill sets. She’s a pleasure to work with!

Al Diggins, President and GM Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium

Cindy provides a very progressive and engaging training environment. We have seen her successfully provide solutions to companies and individuals from all sectors, from the sophisticated to entry level. The integrity she applies to all aspects of her business is beyond reproach.

Anthea Gomez Director, Human Resources & Corporate Services at Express Scripts Canada

Cindy has been engaged by Express Scripts Canada to provide Presentation Skills training to our management team. Cindy’s expertise in this area has been invaluable in supporting our leaders with their leadership development and participants in her sessions always walk away energized and confident in their presentation styles.

Michael J. Bradford Founder- Business Coach Toronto

I recommend Cindy as the founder and chief leader of Athena. Her integrity and commitment to making a difference for her clients is remarkable. I have personal experience with many of the service providers in the Athena Network and they model Cindy’s values. Athena offers outstanding value.

 Susan Orenbach Senior Human Resources Professional

Cindy is the epitome of positive energy! I didn’t just work with Cindy at Duplium; I continue to keep in touch with Cindy because she is a wealth of knowledge and always a delight to catch up with. If you need something or someone, just ask her, she will get it done! She embodies the unique combinations of integrity, commitment and resourcefulness. Thank you Cindy for all the times you gave me just what I needed!

Marina Lichtenberg National Manager, Talent Acquisition at Canon Canada Inc – “Your gateway to a dynamic career with Canon”

We engaged Cindy to help us develop a leadership training program and provide our management with one on one coaching. Cindy’s professionalism, ability to understand our challenges and develop an innovative, cost effective training program in a timely manner was truly impressive. I recommend and welcome the opportunity to work with Cindy.

 Louis Trahan President at LastMinuteTraining.ca, IT/IS pros: ease your training buying process, stretch budgets & be delighted!

I attended a short sales training session from Cindy during a JCI Toronto event. It was amazing how she could transfer so many great ideas in such a short session. I would recommend her for sales training any day.

In my first 8 weeks of working with Cindy I achieved more major business goals than in the previous 8 months. (And lots of minor ones too. Which affect my business-bottom-line less, but satisfy my soul.) It doesn’t hurt that Cindy has one of the most giving natures of anyone on the planet. She takes more genuine satisfaction in my achievements than anyone I’ve ever met.

I really appreciate the expert and attentive counselling Cindy gives. And the wealth of practical tips she has to offer. But the excitement and happiness she shows as I leap hurdles and move forward? I’m not sure how to express what that has meant to me. Or how much it motivates me. And how much it makes me believe that I can, and will, accomplish things I’d never believed I could do
