Thanks again CJ for another clear and powerful presentation. Your enthusiasm is infectious. We all stand to be better communicators by taking your message to heart. On behalf of Ontario Power Generation, I wish you the very best!
R. A. Templeton
Nuclear Training Officer
Ontario Power Generation


Thank you very much for your presentation on "Conflict Resolution" at Playtex Limited today. Everyone really enjoyed your enthusiasm, your presentation style and felt that they learned something that they could immediately apply in the workplace. As I had mentioned to you, I had previously heard you speak at the HRPAO Annual Conference earlier this year and was impressed with your presentation style and ability to apply, and reference, what the previous speaker had talked about into your speeches. I had the pleasure of sitting with a variety of colleagues during the conference and everyone talked openly about how professionally you spoke and what a pleasure it was to watch you present. I look forward to working with you in future!

Kerry Hayward
Manager, Human Resources – Canada
Playtex


CJ, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic seminar. The feedback was overwhelming. You definitely have a fan base at Bombardier
Aerospace. They are asking when I can get you back. You had us in stitches. Seriously speaking, the team appreciated that you broke down "stress" both from a physiological and psychological standpoint. Most importantly, you taught us key methods to identify stress and how to manage it. Although we would love to be stress free, how realistic is that? Life would be quite boring otherwise. It was a great experience and we hope to have you back very soon. I'll spread the word on how great you are.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to having you back to learn
more and hopefully get in a few giggles.

Diana Abballe
Program Coordinator, CRJ 700/900

CJ, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to prepare and present to our clients and prospects. Your topic had overwhelming positive feedback. Once we tabulate our survey results, I will let you know. It should come as no surprise to you that you were one of the highlights of the day.

Many thanks to you. Good luck with your future endeavours and I hope our paths cross again sometime soon.
Laurie Hunter
Comprehensive Benefit Solutions Limited


On behalf of myself and the committee (which I have copied on this e-mail), we thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to come to speak to us. Your energy and enthusiasm captured everyone's attention and left us wanting to hear more.
We were pleased with the turnout and even had a few people who were not able to attend due to other commitments, approach us after the presentation for copies of your handouts to review on their own. As we discussed briefly after the presentation, we look forward to having you back in the spring. I had a chance to visit your website and was impressed by the articles and life-coaching exercises available. I now know where to look to select my next book to read. It was a pleasure to meet you and thanks again for sharing with us your tips and advice. You left a remarkable impression on us.

CJ, We sincerely thank you for the excellent seminar on "Living Well with Stress". It was great to hear everyone laughing at the same time . Everyone has given great feed back about "perspective" .....that clicked with them. Some comments are , "that was GREAT" , "perfect for me" , "can you believe his energy", "can we do that again" "love his real life examples", "let's live and L.E.B. (laugh , exercise & breathe)" , "excellent common sense tools that are free".
Lynda Beyea, Director, Claims

Hi CJ, I just wanted to say thank you very much for coming and presenting to our staff “Living Well With Stress”. You were educational, funny and motivating. The audience was very captive with your presence….and we, the team have received some wonderful feedback back from staff that have attended the sessions….

Your platform skills are exceptional…….you are an excellent presenter.

In future, if I should ever have to conduct other safety meetings, I will be sure to definitely request if we could have you back.
Lee Watson

CJ, Back in February, you had come to speak at our Toronto Rehab Occupational Therapists “Retreat Day”. You brought us a very energetic session to wrap up our day. We would have been considered a tough crowd to please – 3pm in the afternoon, after a day of professional development. I have to say - to uplift, motivate, capture our attention and make us laugh says a lot about the person you are and the level of presentation that you offer. You had us from the minute you stepped up to speak with your enthusiasm and energy. Looking at my colleagues around the room, I would say you had us all thinking and reflecting on our lives. Thank you very much!!
Karen Brown,
Toronto Rehab


I would just like to let you know that the Balance seminars hosted by CJ Calvert were excellent. I have received a very positive response from those who attended. I will definitely be requesting that CJ come in and host a different seminar for Red Cross’s wellness month next year. Thank you,

Please accept this note as a thank you for arranging to have C.J. deliver his seminar on dealing with stress. His presentation was very well received and made our Operational Health & Safety week a success. On behalf of our colleagues at Via Rail we thank you and your team of advisors who help us deal with many issues through out the year. Thanks again.
Zeke Medeiros

CJ, I would like to thank you for your fantastic presentation to our staff at our Lunch and Learn sessions that took place on January 27th & 28th. The feedback from the attendees was very positive and they are already asking me to have you back! You are a natural speaker who exudes passion and energy. You provided informative tips and strategies to help our employees inject more fun into their day, let off some steam and have a more rewarding life experience! You captured the attention of those in attendance and kept them engaged through story-telling and real-life examples that hit home for many in the audience. Thanks again for taking the time to come in and speak to our staff. I hope to work with you again in the near future.

Thank you for facilitating the recent Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Lifestyle teleconference sessions. These sessions were a key part of the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services EAP marketing strategy implementation. Over the three sessions, there were 206 registrations, 98 of which were unique registrants, and 38 of the unique registrants signed up for all three sessions. Fourteen cities in every corner of the Province were represented, providing an important opportunity for Ontario Public Servants in regional locations to access EAP services. The feedback from the sessions has been very good with 85% of respondents rating the session between “Good” and “Excellent” and 100% of respondents indicating they had learned at least one new skill from the session.
I would personally like to thank you for your professionalism and patience facilitating the sessions over the challenging medium of teleconference, where “reading the room” is impossible, and technology can often let you down. Nonetheless, the feedback indicates that the attendees found your approach personable and appreciated the real life examples of managing conflict, stress triggers, and developing communication skills to fit individual style. I look forward to the opportunity of participating in future sessions.

CJ Calvert has been invited to deliver presentations to employees at the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT), Ministry of the Attorney General on numerous occasions. More than one hundred OPGT employees have had the opportunity to participate in one of CJ’s speaking engagements. The feedback and evaluations for CJ’s presentations consistently receive the highest acclaim from staff resulting in ongoing special requests for more of CJ’s sessions.

CJ is a gifted presenter who knows how to bond with his audience. He speaks with confidence, clarity and conviction. CJ communicates so that others listen, understand and act. CJ never fails to deliver his message with enthusiasm and impact – he is a truly engaging speaker.

CJ, The call today was great! I know you're not able to get a read on your audience with this type of presentation so I just wanted to say thanks for another humorous, informative call! I laughed out loud. Love it.

I just wanted to provide feedback for our sessions yesterday. The whole office was buzzing at what an excellent job CJ did, and how much they enjoyed the session. We had such positive feedback from the first session, we had quite a few people not scheduled to come stop by and attend the 2nd session. CJ is a tremendous asset, and we really are so excited to have such a positive feedback come from our associates. I thought I would pass this information onto you, as he is a true diamond in your group!

We have just finished our presentation, and I want to emphasis to both of you, that everyone cannot say enough about CJ Calvert's presentation. I really believe we have all walked away from that presentation highly motivated, and eager to look at things with a different light…I want to thank you again for sending CJ Calvert, as his motivation skills were such a great benefit to all.

I just wanted to say how fantastic this seminar was - Living well with Stress. CJ's enthusiasm, humour and energy engaged the audience and after the seminar, several people came up and thanked him personally and told him how wonderful this session was. He helped us identify and deal with "our reaction" to a situation. Thank you very much for arranging the seminar and especially thank CJ for taking the time to enlighten us. Thanks!

Hi CJ,

Thanks again for adding to the success of our office golf event with your talk on positive thinking and finding the humour in a situation. I have heard numerous positive feedback from my co-workers. What really worked is the fact that the presentation was not overly long… and was interactive. Feel free to consider a GM vehicle when you need to get into a newer car...our quality/ fuel-economy is one of the best and design is second-to-none. ;-)

Thanks again CJ...Val.

Hi CJ;
Just wanted to say 'Thanks and Well Done' at our Community Services Department Coach's Corner, October 17th in Stoney Creek. We have been getting excellent feedback and I am sure more requests will follow as a result. Thanks for attending to all of the pre-planning details, driving in the pouring rain, and giving us a great start to our day with your early morning energy. Appreciate your support to management development in general and to the City of Hamilton in particular.

Thanks again,

Hi, CJ. Thanks for your comments and again, many thanks for speaking at
our meeting. Not only was the content very applicable and resonated with
the team, but more than anything, it made them feel valuable to have spent
time with them by an outside speaker. Hopefully we'll work together again.

Thanks again for your talk yesterday. Everyone I spoke with enoyed your talk. I think many would like a handout as they get caught up in our presentation and don't recall all the specifics when they are actually in situations...

I just wanted to let you know that our session went very well last Thursday and CJ's overview of "Welcoming Change into your Life" was terrific and delivered in his dynamic and entertaining style. As you recommended, he was "just the person" to meet our requirements. Feedback has been great and we are currently consolidating responses to the feedback form. Fyi, we decided to go with our own form but will share with you any relevant feed back that pertains to CJ's presentation or delivery. Thanks very much....Susie.

Good Afternoon,

I wanted to send a big thank you for the amazing Wellness Seminar we all participated in today. The response from the staff has been extremely positive and they all enjoyed the seminar topic. We felt that the information received will be very helpful not only at work but in our day to day lives.

We all had such a great time and CJ Calvert was a marvelous presenter. Every participant made comment of how great he was and that he really suited his job as a Professional Speaker. The hour flew by! He would defiantly be someone we would request to come back.

Thank you again and I look forward with working with you in the future.

Thank you again for arranging for this past weekend's Change Management session. C.J. Calvert did a great job. Although he only had about a 10 minute primer to our organization and our culture immediately prior to the start of the session, C.J. did a masterful job of reflecting our needs, issues, and examples in his presentation.
The feedback from all of the participants was that this was an extremely well organized, well presented, and topical presentation. Again, please accept our sincere thanks.
Regards,

Thank you very much for doing the "Know Your Personality" to a group of about 30 rowdy (should I say lively) 14 year olds yesterday CJ. It was great to have [you] on the days agenda and we all very much appreciated you taking the time out of your busy schedule. You told them they were 'OK' just being themselves, that everyone was different, that there are reasons why each of them feel and behave the way they do. I know that for some of the kids it was a relief to hear that. Even I could recognize my type:) and found it calming to have it explained. CJ, it was in some ways a tough audience and you had to use your considerable skills to keep them engaged. I asked one student at the end what was the best part of the day and he said "the personality thing". The student feedback following the session was that your presentation was the best! Thank you for being part of our program and our day. It was a pleasure to
meet you.

… just wanted to mention that we had the first of our planned 2007 Wellness Seminars yesterday. The subject was “Living Well With Stress” and it was presented by CJ Calvert, who was an amazing speaker! Everyone enjoyed the session, learned a great deal – and they’ve asked if we can have CJ come back for future seminars… any chance of [doing] that, if CJ’s available? Thanks again for setting this up for us – it was very successful! Have a great weekend!

CJ Calvert was at our site today to conduct a “Welcoming Change into your Life” Lunch and Learn session. I am so glad that we did the session as there was one employee who came and she was visibly distraught over a recent loss… I just wanted to let you know that CJ did a wonderful job in his presentation and was so sympathetic and understanding of the upset employee. He had advised me prior to the session that he had a very tight schedule today but did not even hesitate to stay with us – she appreciated it and so did I… my sincere thanks to CJ… Keep up the good work! Thank you!

[CJ], I’m glad that you could come to yet another PD day for the Upper Grand. You did save the day as always. We started out strong and ended strong so all and all it was a good day… it’s great to find a speaker that is so optimistic and full of enthusiasm! All the best in the coming year.

If I could only use one word to describe CJ’s presentation style, it would be “AWESOME”! I recently hired Mr Calvert for our second annual North American Sales Conference in Las Vegas to inspire and motivate our management team. I had two short meetings with CJ prior to the event to give him a feel for the message we were delivering so that he could incorporate this into his own material. His final delivery was right on the mark; you could hear a pin drop through his hour-long delivery. If you are looking for a dynamic speaker that utilizes both personal and past business experiences and that can captivate any size audience, you should consider CJ Calvert.

Paul Swan
Director of Marketing North America, Tri-Ed Ltd.
Hi CJ. Thank you for the Wellness Seminar you conducted yesterday… you did a fantastic job! Our employees thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks again!

The feedback we have had regarding your presentation has been phenomenal…Although you were delivering this to an audience in excess of 120 attendees, it was so personally delivered that participants felt as though you were speaking directly to them. Marlene Smith-Anthony, RBC Royal Bank
