Carol Lesbirel...

A versatile, accomplished speaker, trainer, facilitator and author


Here’s What People Are Saying About Carol Lesbirel…


“Having known Carol since the late 1990’s, she is, in my opinion, one of the most talented trainers in the East Coast. She has been working with us to help educate and motivate our front line supervisors since 1998. With a population base of over 13,000 employees, in four provinces, I had expected to find a trainer, from within our ranks, similar to Carol, but that has not been the case. Carol is truly a unique person with a wealth of knowledge and an abundance of skill sets. Her ability to quickly adapt to various corporate cultures, as well as her skills, at setting each person that attends her class at ease, is nothing short of amazing. Carol creates a safe environment for people to learn in, where attendees can more easily experiment with new ideas. It has been my pleasure, on personal level, to have known Carol over these many years. Her professionalism, integrity and friendship are appreciated.”


“I would strongly recommend Carol Lesbirel to any organization that is looking for a dynamic trainer or presenter.”


“The workshops you have presented to our staff over the past few months have been excellent. You are so dynamic and enthusiastic. Your wealth of knowledge and experience makes your presentations interesting, as well as, beneficial to all participants. One of the comments from a participant ‘The best seminar, with the best instructor I’ve ever attended in my many years of nursing’ was truly reflective of the many comments on the evaluation sheets. Thank you, Carol, for wonderful workshops!”


"Most importantly, the participants said what they found most valuable to be was learning about the importance of attitude, what assertive speaking and listening are, goal setting, time management and especially learning more about how to market themselves in today's highly competitive workplace. An excellent session."


“Through your presentation, we were able to stop and reflect on how we, individually, manage stress in our lives, while enjoying the opportunity to laugh at our shortcomings. The objectives of the day were clearly achieved with many staff expressing a thorough enjoyment of your presentation. We sincerely appreciated the high degree of energy and enthusiasm you transmitted to us during the training session.”


“What a GREAT day the team had at the Prince George Hotel. It was non-stop learning, fun and high energy from the moment you started and it is continuing here in the workplace. We all came away feeling very motivated which will only make our team stronger. I hope we have the opportunity to have you back with us again in the future.”


“I would like to thank you for presenting “Dig a Hole or Climb a Pole” at our recent conference. The comments we received from those that attended were very positive, as were the evaluations, of which I have included a summary copy for you. Thank you for an excellent presentation.”


“Your treatment of the subject “Focus on the Future” was dead-on. Those who have heard you speak, over the last few years at this conference, are still amazed at your ability to bring a room to life, make the time enjoyable and yet get your message across in a non-threatening manner. Thank you for truly filling the bill of a ‘Keynote Presenter’ once again.”


“On behalf of the Delightfully Dashing Debutants and the Valley Bloomers Red Hat Chapters, please accept our appreciation and thanks for your role in making our Red Hatter Week, held in conjunction with the Greenwood Mall, a special and memorable event. You did an excellent presentation, which was totally enjoyed by all present.”


“Thank you for your fantastic keynote presentation for the East Hants and District Chamber of Commerce Small Business Awards dinner. Judging from the responses from the audience, your positive message and attitude was most favorably received. I have been to many events featuring a keynote speaker and I have to admit yours provided the most information and fun. It was great evening.”


“I am writing on behalf of all the Serco Team at Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, to thank you for your excellent Customer Service and Dimensions of Leadership Training sessions for our Management Team. The training was very beneficial and motivating. You have so much energy which makes the learning exciting and fun. I would highly recommend you as a presenter.”


“The New Glasgow Public Library hosted a workshop with Carol Lesbirel on “How to Reduce Stress” based on a chapter from her book “Who Says You Can’t” and Carol’s talk was entertaining, educational and fast-paced. The Management Team, who attended, said that it was one of the best workshops that the Library has hosted. Shortly after her presentation, I suggested her name to the program committee as a possible speaker for the 2007 Nova Scotia Library Association Conference and she has been contracted to speak at that upcoming event. I found my experience with this speaker/author to be both professional and enjoyable.”


“Thank you for another awesome presentation and I appreciated the incorporation of myself and others in your session. It was a lot of fun and we received great comments from the audience.”


“I am writing this letter on behalf of our entire Management Team both at Head Office and at a store level stretching from Halifax, to St. John’s to Calgary to sincerely thank you for a perfect presentation. It completely suited our needs and received extremely high reviews. Your energy, fun and in particular your ability to receive a “buy-in” from our Managers on your amazing and powerful “teachable moments” concept, exceeded our expectations. You “more than delivered” what you promised. Please feel free to refer, any potential clients who are looking for a recommendation, to contact me personally.”


“On behalf of the Regional Leadership Team and staff of the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch, we would like to express our gratitude and thanks to Carol for her incredible speaking presentation. In fact, here are a few comments from participants:"


“On behalf of the Nova Scotia School Boards Association (NSSBA), I would like to thank you for the critical role you played in ensuring the success of our conference. It is clear from the evaluations that both your keynote, ‘Who Says You Can’t ….Agree That Choices Today Impact Tomorrow' and your workshop , ‘Who Says You Can’t…Swim with the Sharks and Survive' were the highlight of the two-day event. I have listened to many presenters over the years and the one thing that stands out with you Carol is your ability to make sessions both practical and motivational. You actually make a difference in people’s lives.”

We hope that presenting at our conference was a pleasent and worthwhile experience. Please keep in touch with the Safety Council, and thank you again for sharing your considerable talent with our delegates.

“Thanks for being our luncheon speaker at the UPEI Administrative Retreat. Your presentation was phenomenal and the feedback we are receiving certainly confirms this. Thanks again for making our retreat the best one yet!!! ”
