What does your business provide?

I am a Harmonious Workplace Development Expert who offers “Smart” Training and HR On Wheels services. I specialize in people development and HR consulting.

I help you:

    • Enhance employee engagement and increase productivity
    • Create an environment where your people bring their best to work
    • Keep your people motivated and accountable
    • Build a trusting, drama-free workplace culture
    • Manage the day-to-day challenges in your business

Our mission is to help organizations develop a workplace that nurtures employee development and builds strong teams, resulting in increased productivity and profitability.

Managers from every size of business and every industry are struggling with the ever-increasing workload that is coming from managing their teams. We are there to help you build processes and systems to lighten the load through one-on-one support, workshops, training sessions, workplace education programs, and HR on Wheels.

What made you want to start your Business?

More than 20 years ago I began working in the field of adult education. Six years ago, after I left a position with an organization, I started to get requests to deliver workshops and workplace education programs, so I decided to take a leap of faith and start ThinkSmart Training & Consulting. My offerings have been driven by the requests I get. My “Smart” HR on Wheels service is my most recent addition, and I developed it because of my work with employers who were struggling with their HR responsibilities often due to a lack of time and resources. Some companies don’t have a dedicated HR staff person or have an overabundance of HR work, and my service supports them in a flexible and cost-effective way.

In the last 6 years I have worked with more than 60 Nova Scotian businesses, and my desire to help employers and employees has grown with every story I hear. I want workplaces to be happy, productive, and profitable. I have a passion for helping leaders be the best they can be and opening the lines of communication in workplaces. I love what I do and feel I am blessed to be able to meet so many people, doing so many different things in so many areas of our province.

When did you join the Chamber of Commerce & how have we helped?

I joined the Chamber because they are an excellent resource. They provide information and learning and networking opportunities. I love being connected with the Chamber and their community of businesses.

I was thrilled the Chamber provided me with the opportunity to partner with them to deliver workplace education program on topics like human resources and customer service.
