I was very fortunate to be introduced to Gayle Draper when looking for a consultant and educator to support our employees at the North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN navigate some challenging career decisions.
Gayle’s approach was compassionate and caring and her sessions received exceptional feedback by the attendees. Her customized sessions on managing organizational change, effective job search strategies, resume writing, LinkedIn profiles and how to develop current marketing tools were well designed and interactive.
Gayle was well prepared, knowledgeable, answered questions effortlessly, engaged adult learners and added humour.
The feedback included but not limited to:
- 87% overall excellent or very good rating
- 92% reported they will be able to apply what they learned

Gayle Draper came highly recommended to me via a colleague and I never looked back. She was able to enhance our needs assessment at Kerry’s Place and run with it to build 4 targeted and customized workshops packed with great content that had our staff asking for more.
Business Writing with the Grammar Olympics and the Spelling Bee is just a sampling of how she engaged our staff to develop their report writing skills. Her Interpersonal Skills presentation had everyone out of their chairs talking and connecting. The Civility, Professionalism and Embracing Diversity workshop had our staff leaving with action plans for change and the realization of the need for change.
She is exceptional to work with and writes employee training manuals that are found on desks months later and used for quick reference.
Gayle also presented at the Fall Conference of the Barrie Chapter of the HRPA on HR Mentoring Healthy Workplaces and received exceptional feedback. She is my go-to Facilitator.
