"I would like to say 'Thank- you' for the training on Friday. I found the home support were
engaged and listening. I feel they left the course with some tools in their toolbox.
Anyway, going forward I’d like to think the staff will actually try some of your suggestions or
at least keep in mind your teachings. The training was excellent!!!"

Ethos Echo - Chestermere - February 3
"I came expecting more about different ethnic groups, but was glad to learn of something broader that can be used in all of our situations. This knowledge could be applied not just for working with various ethnic groups, but to various populations in general."
"I came into the course thinking I was learning about different cultures - ie.natives, Asian, etc, but yet I came out understanding that there is so much more to cultures than I ever thought. Thank you!"
"Good course. Helped me think about things differently."
"Interesting course - lots to take away from this."
"I applaud & appreciate the presentation of 'culture' as something every individual has that is separate from heritage."
"A great presentation - on such an important topic. It's nice to be validated for instilling change (positive) for the community. Knowing that it takes time but all our efforts make a difference."
"I have a different perspective on 'culture' which will definitely be a benefit to me in my relationships with clients."
"Very useful information and resources, good tips and suggestions."
