    Chantal is adept at bridging cultures and fostering a sense of unity among diverse people. She is upbeat, positive, an excellent public speaker, and brings her dynamism to all functions and events she leads or is a part of. I can highly recommend her!

    I attended a workshop facilitated by Chantal. It was one of the most informative and beneficial PD sessions I have ever attended. Chantal’s knowledge and compassion were shared so givingly. I could have sat and listed to her for hours. I truly hope that our paths cross again. It was a complete honour to attend.

    Chantal is a charismatic public speaker and entertainer. She’s also an excellent event planner/organizer. I’ve seen her in action on many occasions and marvel at how she always keeps her cool even when others are losing their heads.

    Chantal lent her talents to the Intercultural Dialogue Institutes 6th Annual Dialogue and Friendship Dinner and Responsible Citizens conference Nov. 19, 2015. She sang and drummed an opening and closing Cree blessing to the delight and enlightenment of attending Calgarians.
