I run my own consultant firm in Ottawa (Ontario) and I have been training successfully hundreds of public servants to get their position required levels (oral, writing, reading) in French.

Corporate FSL Training Consultant

I was in charge of the college in both, Archambault and Cowansville federal penitentiaries.

In addition to my FSL training services, I also have several regular clients for translation, text editing and proof reading.

President
Syndicat des co-propriétaires du 4900 Wilson, Quebec, Canada

I was the President of our Condo Board Association. I managed to get back the association's finances on track and even get some of our money back after it had been poorly administrated by the developer/builder. I fired and hired new contractors and implemented an efficient administration. When I left Montreal to move to Ottawa, the association's finances were in real good shape.

First time in this virtual classroom environment ... very sophisticated system. Not intimidating or off-putting. Only advice would be, check software compatibility in advance ... it's not complicated but does save time. Will
