  • Stephanie approached the engagement with enthusiasm, positivity, and creativity. Not fully knowing if the sophisticated technology & business audience would be as responsive to each of the three-day presentations... we were as happy as the audience with Stephanie’s passion on stage each day. An audience of over two hundred people (per session) were clearly captivated, motivated and responsive. So much so that we received numerous requests for recordings, published work, etc. Stephanie puts a lot of heart into her time on stage, challenging both herself and others to grow, think and learn. She practices what she preaches, that is to say, Stephanie brings her A game!
    - Executive Producer, Drury Design
  • Steph provided us with more than we could have hoped... a knowledgable, experienced look into our own personal practices, empathy into what we were going through, practical tips to start the process of healing, and a vision of a greater future... all in 1 hour (after a big lunch). We collectively loved Steph's energy, enthusiasm and message (on a scale of 1 to 5, ever seen a 6?). I would not hesitate to bring her back and will be recommending her to colleagues around my health region. We could all use a little more Stephanie Staples in our practices.
    - Physician QI Champion, Royal Columbian Hospital
  • After Stephanie wowed us with her dynamic program for our leaders I knew we had to have the whole staff hear her. With less than 24 hours notice we got her in front 150 frontline employees who left inspired, uplifted and with tools to implement immediately to improve the quality of their life and work. If you have the chance to experience her programs, just say yes and make it happen. I’m glad I did!

    - CEO, Johnson Medical Centre
