Testimonials - Olivia McIvor


"Everyone was thrilled to have been able to attend and will be taking what they have learned and applying it back at their workplaces. The overwhelming comment was that now they understand why the different generations respond differently to the same situation. Some even said that now they may understand their kids better. It was a great presentation, informative and educational. This should be something presented in every workplace."

Del Windrum, SSMLT Executive Director


"Olivia's knowledge, understanding and experience in corporate training has been invaluable in the success of several projects in a wide variety of industries. She helped us to understand and fill "knowledge gaps" in our development and delivery of health and safety training materials so that supervisors and employers are better equipped to train their workers."

Terri Holizki
Industry Services Manager, Worker and Employer Services Division,


 "In just a short period Olivia built a strong sense of community and had people abuzz at their tables. The sharing was most profound and very moving. I thought that the workshop would be good but Olivia outdid herself. She has a special gift of connecting and is really a great presenter. She wowed us all. We all went home happy, inspired and more committed to offer gifts of kindness"

"Olivia McIvor gave our workplace the best Christmas gift we could have hoped for. She provided an inspirational presentation for our staff on the Business of Kindness to remind us that cultivating kindness is essential to creating a positive work environment and healing many workplace ailments. Olivia extended an additional 2 hours of consulting to help our workplace wellness committee prepare to launch a Kindness to Colleagues/Business of Kindness program in our agency. She gave us all the strategies and documents we needed to roll out this exciting program. Thanks Olivia!"
