Essential Conversations with Suzanne Sherkin & special guest: Claire Sookman

I feel honoured to endorse Claire for any projects she migh bring to you. Claire is one of the most professional consultants I have come across in my professional career and put her clients wishes before anything. She provides her clients with insight about business matters that most executives tend to dismiss from time to time. She also brings a friendly approach that makes you feel at home.

Claire is committed to her belief that corporations can strengthen their virtual teams by providing them with training in virtual communications and team building. Claire is an experienced facilitator of DISC as a communication tool, project management workshops, leadership and soft skills. It is a pleasure to work with Claire and I would highly recommend her as a facilitator and learning partner.

This is, and always has been the case with Claire. I find her to be professional, knowledgeable and very personable. Clients are delighted with her programs and re-hire her many times. Claire is a great asset to my company and I recommend her without hesitation.
