Testimonials

 

“The People for People Conference was one of the very best conferences I have been to in my professional career. The ‘people first’ approach to leadership which was interwoven through all of the workshops really resonated with me. As a leader in my organization, there were a number of tangible, and practical tools that I took away from the conference and have since shared with my team. A huge thank you to Kara and her team for putting together such a rich and intimate conference, please keep it up!”

-Amina Deiab, Government of Alberta

 

“One of my wishes…that I had had access to such a conference much much much earlier in my life. Better late than never as they say!”

-Kari Hass, Alberta Energy Regulator

 

“This conference is amazing! I have attended two years in a row and have thoroughly
enjoyed both years. The organization and attention to detail are second to none – top
notch speakers and great content throughout. I attend a number of conferences every
year but wouldn’t miss out on this one.”

-Clint Docken, Docken & Company Class Action Lawyers

 

“The People for People Conference far exceeded my expectations. Since I teach
at a university I am looking for presenters who are experts in their field. I found the
knowledge and facilitation skills of the presenters exceptional. Flying Colors does a
masterful job at bringing people together and making it into magic.”

-Rosemarie Nardella, Psychologist

 

“People for People is different from any other conference you will attend. Engaging speakers, topics reflecting current issues and tangible tools that can be put to work immediately following the conference. This was a great event for my own professional development and the development of my staff and colleagues who I have shared my learnings with. Definitely a highly recommended and high value conference.”

-Alisa Neuman, Government of Alberta

 

“I went to the People for People Conference for the first time, and loved it! I couldn’t write fast enough during the keynote speaker, and have been using her teachings since then. I can’t wait for the next one.”

-Heather Blacquiere, The City of Edmonton

 

“Attending the People for People Conference is like being in a Masters level class. The quality of the presentations and discussions is VERY high. I appreciate that I am hearing from top level speakers – straight from the experts rather than a regurgitated version of the information. The conference has an intimate feel, so I connect with other professionals in a unique way. This is not a typical conference where you’re one of 500 people. It’s worth putting in your calendar a year in advance.”

-Dawn Sunde, College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta

 

“I cannot believe what I’ve been missing! As a first time attendee to the People for People Conference, I was amazed at the content and information. Being in one place with so many outstanding professionals, knowledgeable speakers, and bold leaders was extremely beneficial. If there is only one conference you can attend, it should be this one.”

-Mercury Guo, Business Development, NAMIC Group

 

“This year’s conference got me out of my comfort zone a little more than usual, which (guess what) was uncomfortable. But I grew and learned some things about myself, and was prompted to re-evaluate what’s really important to me. What more can someone ask?!!”

-Brian Matheson, Mediator

 

“When a friend emailed me the People for People brochure, I almost deleted it because
I didn’t have much of an education budget from my workplace and I was rejecting
conferences out of hand. I’m so glad that I didn’t. The conference was exactly what I
needed in order to learn and to re-energize.

I took a week off without pay and provided my own travel and accommodations
so that I could go. It was absolutely worth it. The participants in the conference were
amazing. Flying Colors and the conference volunteers did an amazing job of pulling this
event together and providing top scale presenters in an intimate and friendly setting. I
would highly recommend it to anyone.”

-Chris Freeman, Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada

“I completely trust Flying Colors to create a conference that I wouldn’t want to miss. That’s why I took advantage of the ‘year in advance’ registration last year and will again for as long as ‘People for People’ continues. I’ve done a lot of travelling over the last 15 years to learn from great people and now they are coming here to Edmonton. Not to mention all of the professionals who attend and share their talents and insights. Thank you!!”
