Great Speakers Partner with HRPA!

Michele Bailey, Founder, The Blazing Group

"Working as a speaker, presenter and a Masterclass facilitator with the HRPA has been an absolute pleasure. The professional and knowledgeable expertise of the team at the HRPA has been effective, efficient and seamless. They have enhanced my presentations with incredible logistic, technology and personal support. I look forward to collaborating with them again and often. Truly an exceptional team."

Sophie Brochu, President & Founder, Happy Moments

"I had the honour to be the closing keynote speaker for the HRPA Summer Conference and their level of support definitely exceeded my expectations. What I enjoyed the most from this collaboration with the HRPA’s team was to feel how they truly cared about the human side and about the purpose of the event; to help all their members and attendees to elevate their well-being!"

CJ Calvert, TEDx Speaker, Author, and Life Coach

“As a corporate speaker for over 20 years, I have delivered over 5,000 presentations to world-class organizations in every industry, and presented at more conferences than I can name.  Recently, I had the pleasure of being one of the keynote speakers for the HRPA Summer Conference.  I can honestly say, it was one of the most organized and professional experiences I’ve ever had.  Sacha and her team worked tirelessly to ensure not only a seamless presentation on the day of the event but went the extra mile to ensure every “i” was dotted and “t” was crossed leading up to it.  It made my job as a speaker so much more enjoyable and rewarding.  Kudos to Sacha and the entire HRPA team!  Any speaker would be fortunate to work with you, and your audience members certainly got a fantastic ROI for a day well spent.”

Lindsay Recknell, President & CEO, Paradigm Corporate Wellness Inc.

“It is my absolute pleasure to work with the team at the HRPA. You have never met a more dedicated, organized and intelligent group of people all working towards a common goal of providing education, support and incredible value to HRPA members. They are communicative, planful, strategic, compassionate and unbelievably organized, all while showing up with grace and patience in the face of, what I can only imagine is, behind-the-scenes chaos of hosting virtual and in-person events. I highly recommend any speaker, facilitator and/or educator to engage with the HRPA team – your experience will be unmatched.”

Dr. Rumeet Billan, CEO, Women of Influence; Chief Learning Architect, Viewpoint Leadership Inc.

Working with HRPA has been a phenomenal experience. ​The professionalism was appreciated, and they took care of everything — all the details needed to make the speaking engagement a success. It has been an absolute pleasure working with HRPA and I look forward to continuing our partnership!”

Shawna Percy,
 President, Life Voice Workshops

“I had the tremendous privilege of being the keynote speaker for the HRPA Summer Conference, 2023. My key contact, Sacha, was clear, encouraging, and kind. Sacha [HRPA staff member] communicated expectations well. There was also a lot of opportunity to touch base ahead of the conference, as well as during the tech check. This was my first time using the ON24 platform, which I loved! It is user-friendly and professional. The HRPA sent helpful video and PowerPoint instructions ahead of time, so I knew what to expect. Sacha, Tina, and everyone else HRPA team behind the scenes made a dream team to work with. As a speaker, I felt supported, celebrated, and rewarded to have shared this experience with the HRPA team. Thank you, HRPA, for the tremendous care you take with your speakers and attendees.”
