    Wendy’s Emotional Intelligence program was engaging and very interactive, providing participants the opportunity to learn about their personal strengths and offering tips on areas for improvement.  I found her session to be most valuable and would recommend it to anyone looking to grow personally and professionally.

    Wendy delivered very thought-provoking and insightful sessions to our Finance group on the topics of Emotional Intelligence and Meditation. She was able to break through the paradigms around these “soft skill” subjects that accountants tend to have and aligned us all with the benefits available to us through practice of the underlying skill sets. I’ve received very positive feedback from the whole group on these sessions and look forward to continuing to work with Wendy in the future.

  • Humour in the Workplace
    Wendy was the speaker at our awards night where we recognize students who achieve their professional designation and our volunteers. We wanted a ‘class act’ to suit the significance of the occasion and Wendy delivered in grand style. She got the entire group involved and laughing. It was a wonderful session and Wendy worked hard to make it a great experience for all.

  • Laughter Is The Best Medicine
    Your recent visit to the Barrie & District Scotiabanker’s evening was most uplifting! The fact that everyone in the room participated and had a lot of laughs was a terrific stress reliever! Staff commented on how interesting your presentation was. We hold five minute morning huddles each day and the one following the presentation was filled with laughter and excitement.

    Janice Archer
    Barrie & District Scotiabanker’s Association

    I liked the fact that the technique of laughter is linked to scientific and researched information. Wendy is very professional and the session was well done.

    Wendy’s upbeat and friendly style allows the participants to feel professionally comfortable before doing some things that would not be “normal” in a traditional office setting… but once she lets her concepts loose, watch out! Laughter is the name of the game! An inspiring hour of energy.

     Our laughter yoga session was a wonderfully exhilarating, stress releasing, and team building hour. With Wendy’s relaxed and engaging style, everyone quickly got over their initial skepticism and threw themselves into incredible fits of laughter and joy. For days after, participants were still smiling as they thought about our hour of laughter.

    Wendy Woods presented a laughter yoga session at one of our National Retail Sales meetings. It was a tough group because we are in the midst of being bought by another company. We didn’t know if we would have jobs or not. Wendy was aware of this and the individual stress levels of the group. She did a great job getting people to release some stress and relax!! The group left the room feeling energized.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful and exciting workshop! Laughter Yoga is a fun easy way to de-stress and re-energize our body and mind. It was fun to see my agents let go of all the stress and just get involved in all the funny activities. Our agents are still talking about it and giving hi five’s to each other. Great job!

  • Laughing All The Way To The Bank
    The feedback on your “Laughing all the way to the bank” presentation has been just great…you showed us that humour is not just about being funny; it is about how you see things, your attitude, your ability to find humour in our everyday lives.

    Wendy’s Humour in the Workplace is a great workshop. It’s highly participatory and interactive. It leaves staff members with a sense of belonging and increases team morale. I would recommend this training workshop to any organization seeking fun back in the workplace.

    My staff and I recently participated in the Humour in the Workplace session led by Wendy Woods. From the moment we walked in the room we could tell this was not going to be just another training session. Wendy’s engaging facilitation style, creative exercises, practical advice and fun props combine to deliver a message that reminds us to take ourselves and our situations less seriously and how humour can be used constructively in a work environment.

  • Stress Management

    I attended your seminar at the Annual IBAO convention and it was the best one yet!  The information was useful and very helpful. You are a great speaker, and you presented the information in a way that kept our attention. You also involved the group in your presentation, which I feel was a better learning tool than just watching and listening.

    Jamie Hrycyshyn

    These workshops helped me identify some of the negative patterns I had developed in my work life and provided me with practical tools that could be used right away. I would highly recommend the Stress Management Series to anyone interested in finding ways to reduce stress.

    Wendy really got us thinking about the importance of being more mindful and focused at work.  She highlighted why this is critical for the brain and improving performance and job satisfaction.

    I also wanted to tell you again how much I gained from your course. It’s amazing how different I felt over the past two weeks. Several colleagues even commented on how happy and relaxed I seemed. I was more positive about everything and felt much more at peace. I can’t wait to continue using the techniques and ideas we discussed in your course, and look forward to passing them on to my agency!
