Terri’s Qualifications Include:

I have been involved in Training and Development since 1997.  Through my career I have worked in multiple industries such as IT, Music Education, Radio Production, Corporate Training and Business Coaching.

I believe in the power of a learner-centric approach to training. Whether you're an entry-level graduate, a first time manager, or a senior leader, our programmes are tailored to your specific needs.  I have delivered more than 50 unique training topics to over 2500 participants in a variety of settings such as webinars, in-person group settings, large presentations, company gatherings and more.

Adding a coaching diploma to my toolkit has given me the opportunity to expand my services to one-on-one business and life coaching, which has included using multiple formal assessments such as the RocheMartin Emotional Capital Report (ECR) and Insights Discovery Psychometric Testing.  Coaching serves a strong purpose in professional development, and one-to-one coaching sessions can be offered alongside training courses or independently, depending on your needs.

In whatever work I have done, my passion over the past three decades has consistently involved empowering people to unlock their full potential. Wherever you find yourself in your career journey, I would love to work with you in the pursuit of growth and development for you and your teams.

In his free time Eric likes doing anything related to history or baseball, spending time with family, gardening and doing other projects in the yard, and spending far too much time exploring historical sites and museums!

About Eric

While not currently my main job focus, I have been involved in Training and Development, as part of my professional work as an engineer, since 1999. At this stage of my career, I am a “lifer” in the Medical Device industry, having worked in that field since 1993. I have worked the majority of this fruitful time in various roles, functions, and sites with Boston Scientific.

More recently, I have been honoured to become part of the staff at AAMI as an Expert Trainer, delivering group technical training.

Largely due to my 30+ year career seeing lives changed every day through the products that we make in medical devices, I believe that one should look to make a difference in any significant work in their life - if not, why bother doing it? I have delivered technical training throughout much of my career, and I love seeing the “lightbulbs go on” as people begin to understand the course content and make it their own. However, that pales in comparison to trainees taking what they’ve learned and using it in their daily lives - that is a job well done, in my eyes!

As most of the engineering roles I’ve held have included supervision to some degree, I have quite a bit of experience in personal development, coaching, and mentoring. However, once I achieved my coaching diploma in 2021, I decided to be more intentional in this area and made myself available for coaching/mentoring to the wider community and have enjoyed coaching relationships with a number of fine individuals since then.

Teaching and training, for individuals or groups, only goes so far in making a difference in the lives of your employees or for yourself. What is needed is a holistic approach, where information is given and received but where people are also grown in their ability to do the work that’s being asked of them, so that they reach their true potential, and in turn make a difference for other people. I welcome the opportunity to help make that happen for you!
