Selected Testimonials

The sessions we did with Gola and Bill really got people excited.  They enabled staff to see things from a different perspective, understand their power to make positive changes and focus on specific things that they could do to make change happen.  We have seen great improvements in staff morale and approach since we did this work and people don’t buy into other people’s negativity anymore.  The results from these sessions were everything we hoped for and more – Patricia Bland, Chief Executive Officer, Riverview Home Corporation

Bill was the star of the Council’s events.  His talk received an overwhelming positive response from our Stewards. He had has us roaring with laughter and in tears as he delivered information that was on point for the important work that our Union Stewards do.  He received 4/4 on our evaluations by Council participants with comments such as Awesome Speaker!, Hilarious! and made me remember why I became a Steward! Thanks for all your efforts. – Catherine Pinks, Professional Institute of the Public Service

Best seminar ever!” and “I needed to hear that!” were just a few of the repeated comments echoed in response to Bill Carr’s seminar. Bill speaks with a poignant, direct and personal style and delivers with an authority gleaned from varied personal life experiences, and shares these intimate nuggets of life with the wit and charm of a true Canadian Maritimer. As a facilitator, Bill draws the best from his audience, his compassionate prodding empowering even the most reticent participants to share personal insight and opinions. I would unreservedly and wholeheartedly recommend Bill to any organization or group function. –David Froelich, Secretary Treasurer, Teamsters Local Union 987 of Alberta

With the perfect blend of stand-up comedy and personal touching stories, Bill Carr delivers tremendous and applicable messages for business and life in general. His presentation set the perfect tone for our tradeshow weekend — so much so that we have invited him to speak again.Helen Sherrard, President, Canadian Health Food Association

Participants at the NBAEAP Annual Conference commented that closing speaker Bill Carr was the highlight of the conference. Before delivering an important message, Bill starts out with a related true story and finishes with a powerful message giving the audience a roller coaster ride of emotions. – Robert M. Ouellette, New Brunswick Association of Employee Assistance Programs

I just wanted to send a quick message regarding Bill’s appearance last night at the Exit Realty Habitat for Humanity Dinner in Bridgewater. He was simply amazing-nothing that hasn’t been said before I am sure. Humor is therapy but it was his humanity and understanding of empathy that touched me most. – Lisa Barry,Habitat for Humanity Organizer

Bill’s combined skills as Emcee and Entertainer contributed greatly to the enjoyment of our attendees. Comments ranged from hilarious and engaging to a great ambassador of Atlantic Canadian culture.Catherine MacDonald,Managing Director, ADIANS

 I wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how GREAT Bill Carr was at our conference. Not only is he a very nice man, but during his speech he knew exactly how to get people’s attention for the whole time. He made us stop and think, got us emotional, serious, and made us laugh so much. He really knows how to tell stories that people can relate to their professional and personal life. Everyone here loved it and we wouldn’t hesitate to refer him to anyone. Hats off to Mr. Bill Carr!!! – Mélissa St-Amour, Triton Digital

I just wanted to thank you for recommending Bill for our team building event. His presentation was interesting, thought provoking and hilarious. I was amazed by the emotion he evoked from the entire room. I think everyone took something important home with them that day. He was the best speaker we’ve had to date and I hope to work with him again in the near future. – Maggie Morrison, The Regional Municipality of York

Bill was fantastic! Everyone loved his talks. He was by far the biggest hit of our PD Days”Stephanie Moulton, Communications Officer, Maritime Forces Atlantic

We have never received such an overwhelming response to a speaker before and in fact, I had at least six people indicating their interest in having you speak at their conference.  Your powerful combination of humour, real-life examples and strong connection to your audience sets you apart from other speakers.  Thank you and congratulations on an amazing session.  – Marie T. Mullally, FCA ,President & CEO, Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation

Several people told me that you “made the conference” for them or that they couldn’t imagine a better way to inspire people after a jam-packed program. Thank you for joining us for the conference, for making us laugh and cry at the same time, and for making us feel special and valued. – Rebecca Attenborough, Co-ordinator, Reproductive Care Program of Nova Scotia

Everyone enjoyed his presentation immensely.  His personal stories were real, and ones that all could connect to.  His maritime perspective was endearing and his sense of humour was wonderful and enjoyed by all.  He was easily able to tie his world and life experiences to our world of post secondary education and to give all a sense of accomplishment for our work. It was a perfect end to our two days together.I would highly recommend Bill as a keynote in the future.  He was extremely well received, and is certainly one of the reasons that our conference was such a success. –  Norma MacIntosh, Dean, Faculty of Continuing Education & Extension

Hilarious, entertaining but more importantly, thought provoking. His insight on stress and how we react to it was bang on for the crowd at hand. Highly recommended!Fisheries and Oceans

The event was a huge success!  Bill was fantastic.  He brought the right tone to the event; funny at the right time, respectful and warm at the right time.  I also really appreciate the fact that he worked within the production timings –  The live auction was under budget and that’s also thanks to Bill.  He really worked hard to drive up those prices. This is one of the smoothest running dinners I have ever done. I am always honest with my feedback, good or bad, but honestly, I can’t really imagine how he could have done a better job.  I will want to work with him again next yearMichael Stack, Event Manager, Canadian Paraplegic Association

Thank you very much for being a part of our annual advisor and assistant appreciation dinner. To put it simply, you were entertaining, motivating, and last but not least, inspiring. We look forward to working with you again in the future. – Richard Alderman, Branch Manager, Assante Capital Management Ltd.

In a word; your man was fantastic, topical, hilarious, poignant, energized and energizing. Oh…. Right…. That’s six words. There were 275 or so in the audience . I would have said they were 275 people seated for the performance but he had most of them on the floor. Bill’s ability to weave his humor with the Rotary message was impressive. I wouldn’t simply want to recommend Bill to a future group I would want to insist upon it. He was the man and the message we needed and he delivered. Thanks for all of your help. –Blake Daley, The Rotary Club

I will use the elements presented today in both my personal and professional interactions.  A great day!! – K.

Great facilitator, warm, welcoming, created a very comfortable environment. No pressure to participate. Acceptance.  – Anonymous

Gola, you were excellent! I have a lot to think about and work on in applying restorative practices to both my personal and professional world! Thank you!- A.C

 This is the best workshop I have ever attended! An opportunity to self-reflect; non-judgmental environment set from the beginning; very knowledgeable facilitator; a connection between the information and our current program/work. – C.C.

 This was fantastic, learning at its best, not being talked “at” but feeling very much a part of the whole. – S.N.

 Gola is a masterful facilitator — wonderful, empowering, open and caring which transfers perfectly/harmoniously to the process itself. – T.S.

A really safe and supportive learning environment was created in quite a large group… restorative practice in action!  Everyone had a voice and the possibility to speak up…space was created for everyone’s voice to be heard. – I.L.

Very relaxed, created a safe space for all our voices. – J.M.

I liked the take away materials and extra readings…the fact that some of the questions did not have an exact answer but a collaborative answer seeking process. – M.C.

 It was a very controlled but comfortable environment…Training should be offered to other organizations.  It’s something that everyone can benefit from.  Absolutely amazing and inspiring! – L.R.

 …well planned, filled with interesting and useful information, geared to several learning styles, enhanced positive energy in the room…These workshops really enhanced my other work and made me much more effective in handling conflict resolution. – M.M.

 Gola, you always help me feel re-energized.  I think much of this has to do with your positivity and confidence. Thank you! – L.D.
