“…I am happy to have the opportunity to recommend Beverly Beuermann-King, Stress and Wellness Specialist on behalf of the Association of Law Officers of the Crown. We are a labour organization representing lawyers employed by the government of Ontario.  Each year, we organize a three-day educational conference. We retained Ms. Beuermann-King as a speaker to provide a 75-minute seminar, Thriving With Stress –Work Smart Live Smart at our conference. The seminar was somewhat challenging in that the participants had varying levels of knowledge of the area with many participants having attended other seminars on similar topics previously. Ms. Beuermann-King was well prepared and demonstrated an excellent ability to make her presentation appropriate for the audience. One participant commented that  Ms. Beuermann-King  “put all the pieces together and offered practical strategies for lowering stress.” Ms. Beuermann-King’s presentation style was interesting and captivated the participants’ attention.  Participants commented that she was “Very dynamic and clear – inspirational without being fake;” “full of energy;” “an impressive speaker;” “Excellent;” “Lively presenter.”  We were impressed by Ms. Beuermann-King’s presentation skills and her ability to provide a very interactive seminar…”

“…I hired Beverly to speak at the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management Spring Conference. CSNM is a Society whose members are primarily Nutrition Managers who work in Long Term or Acute Care facilities across Canada. Beverly is a creative and original thinker. She has excellent speaking skills, is an enthusiastic speaker possessing insightful ideas, and plenty of common sense that she has applied to her presentation for the CSNM AGM and Conference. In addition, she has demonstrated excellent powers of observation, and an ability to communicate and suggest change in effective but non-threatening ways. Early on, Beverly was interested in creating a presentation for us that would be relevant to the audience to which she was speaking. From the beginning of her assignment, Beverly began to fulfill our expectations of a good speaker.  She started by participating in discussions with myself and suggesting and implementing several changes to her script. The presentation we wanted was normally a full day session, but Beverly was able to shorten its length without impacting the flow of her presentation – all to the great praise of the conference delegates. In all, Beverly has gone beyond expectations, and out-shined all other speakers…”

Her PowerPoint presentation was filled with examples and expanded on the content of the hand out resource. She is also very easy and a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitancy in recommending her highly…”
