bernice theriault

M.A.G.I.C. (Mentoring, Asking Questions, Growth, Integrity and Community) is the key to my success.  I am always seeking opportunities to build relationships and create custom solutions, while working with innovative companies to increase both the community and economic impact.

With a background in hospitality management and adult education, I combine the two to provide engaging, enlightening and stimulating learning experiences for a variety of audiences. I am always looking for unique opportunities to help entrepreneurs, businesses, government agencies and non-profit organizations rise to the top.

 

bernice's BEST FIT

Whether it's hosting strategic planning sessions, employee engagement or facilitating a transition meeting I enjoy working with teams to help facilitate growth. As a community connector I help to identify opportunities and issues to support an increase in community and economic development.  My community connections allow me to find unique opportunities for innovation.  As a customer care specialist I am passionate about increasing awareness for customer care, entrepreneurship, business, government agencies and non-profit organizations through a variety of events, workshops and community events.

I have had the great pleasure of working with Bernice in a variety of projects over the last 10 years. She is a true connector with an eye for smart business decisions. Her connections in the community and beyond, combined with her interpersonal savvy, ability to envision the future, and her deep operational skills in business, make her the ideal candidate for any economic development work. I have no hesitation in recommending Bernice, and have done so many times. Working with her is just smart business, with the bonus of a delightful relationship.

Bernice is a fantastic facilitator. She is open, engaging and it doesn’t hurt that she knows everyone! Her ability to forge relationships makes her a wonderful resource in networking contacts. Bernice is also a devoted and compelling educator. A woman of many talents.

I attended numerous workshops that were being held by Bernice. All of them were very enjoyable because of Bernice’s professional demeanor, her ability to engage participants and to present any material in a way that is easy to understand. I appreciate her sense of humour and how she never fails to create a relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend Bernice as a presenter, facilitator or public speaker.
— Marinta Groeger- Health Instigator
I was impressed with the attention to detail in the planning, pre event, during event and post event. I watched the set up and everything mattered, where the chairs were placed, who sat where, the sequence and flow of entry all towards aiding freedom of thought and opinion. It worked! It was clear they had actively imagined and planned around impediments to collaboration within our own environment – customized! I was most impressed however with the consultation and council they provided in tailoring communication before, during and after the event to speak a common theme. I highly recommend.
