Our Success Stories

I never thought I would get back into senior management… now in a leadership position that fits me to a tee. I have the work life balance that I needed for my family … the company’s steady growth means opportunities for the ongoing learning that I constantly desire. It is thanks to Wayne’s persistence in urging me to never let go of what we initially planned together.-- Jarome L, Niagara Falls, Ontario -- Career Aviators Client

My career/life statement was invaluable. It helped me target what I wanted to do next and how that fit with other aspects of my life. -- Len S, Vancouver, BC, Career Aviators Client

What was fantastic about Career Aviators and working with Wayne was that the process and exercises undertaken enabled me to recognize what really motivates me. -- Andrew B, Calgary, Alberta, Career Aviators Client

This was the best workshop I have ever attended in my life.  My resume has dramatically changed and it now reflects what I have actually achieved. My field research paid off and I am negotiating between offers.  Thanks to this workshop I have the means to evaluate these offers.  -- David B, Burlington, Ontario, Workshop Participant

I can manifest my ideas into goals that can be pursued and accomplished with a little work and determination. It is not as scary or impossible to represent myself in the job market as I thought it would be. -- Tania R, Peterborough, Ontario, Workshop Participant
