Our Interactions: Testimonials

"When engaging a consultant or trainer one wants a person who has impact and is capable of contributing in practical ways. Whether its culture change, negotiation training or personal development, Nellie has been invaluable in contributing and making a difference to our people. She understands the client organizations need, delivers powerfully and makes sure that the effort of her engagement has lasting value. It's this type of interest, effort and passion for her work that's made her successful and a partner in several projects for Hiram Walker and Pharmaphil. She never ceases to amaze! "  (Even if she's just calling and leaving a voice mail.)

"Nellie Vieira is a brilliant and talented facilitator/trainer from Toronto. Her style is dynamic, genuine and her messages are as impactful as they are insightful.  Our engineers and buyers cannot say enough good things about her and as one class finishes, I have registrations for the next.  Our folks find that they leave the course with far more than they could possibly expect."

"Nellie’s presentation was very animated, lots of enthusiasm; emotive, energetic, expressive, wow; fantastic, and she was engaging for every minute of the course.

I have never seen someone speak for two full days on a topic without notes and even more so kept it interesting."

"Thank you for being a large reason why this was one of our most successful conferences yet. We have had nothing but positive remarks. I think I have a concept that describes you perfectly:  ‘Attitude without the Attitude’ You do what you do with great humility and no pretension. You were awesome!"

This was my third time having the privilege of attending your workshop with you and I cannot begin to tell you how much I still have learned and have taken away from today’s workshop too. Everyone benefited and grew personally. I know it's just what we needed to start the year on the right foot."

"My life and career are both back on track and I cannot thank Steve enough for helping me through that tough time….I would recommend Steve to either speak in front of a group or individually as his motivation skills are top of the line. After listening he breaks everything down to small details and gets you thinking "true to the core."
