``Patricia saved the day! I was a keynote speaker for a large, professional development event run by wonderful volunteers. While they were experts in their field they (justifiably) had no idea how to produce a virtual event. I admit I was a bit panic-stricken at the thought of them doing it on their own (read, my!) tech so I was so happy to recommend Patricia's services. With Patricia's pre-event guidance and teaching - the volunteers were confidently able to run the event - which went technically perfect, btw! Better yet, now they are equipped with the knowledge and tools they can use for future events! I happy to recommend Patricia again! `` LinkedIn Recommendation

``I strongly believe in surrounding myself with talented people to help me grow my business and stand out amongst the crowd. One of the smartest moves I recently made was partnering with Patricia to deliver an engaging and interactive program for a virtual event. Not only did Patricia create captivating images for my slides, she also flawlessly supported me during the event by handling all the technical aspects of my presentation. Patricia played a huge role in the positive impact I made on the participants that day and I very much look forward to working with her again in the future!``

``Working with Patricia is an absolute dream! She put my mind at ease from the moment we first connected to start planning the session. Her simple templates and reference guides ensured a smooth and stress-free lead up. She thought of things that I hadn't even considered and ensured that the participant experience was always front and center. Once we were in session, her adaptability and creative problem solving skills under pressure are second to none. Simply put, having Patricia Regier as my virtual producer gave me the confidence to present with confidence, knowing I only had one thing to focus on - bringing it for my client!`` (Online Production Partner Services)

``I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Patricia Regier for a virtual book launch. I was emceeing the event, we had the author and three guest speakers plus prizes, interactive components including music and the only way we were able to do all of this smoothly, was by having Patricia producing the show behind stage. Patricia flawlessly produced the event like a beautifully choreographed performance. Her calm demeanor provided us with so much confidence that we were able to relax and focus on what we needed to do. Patricia is the consummate professional. Not only is she highly skilled and well versed in technology and zoom, she is also a learning design and participant engagement expert. When the event matters, you are going to want Patricia in your corner. I could not recommend her highly enough. Patricia also provides tons of resources and is extremely generous and kind sharing her wisdom and insights - do yourself a favor and check out all her resources.`` LinkedIn Recommendation (Online Production Partner Services)

``I recently attended Patricia's workshop that shared tools to engage virtual audiences, As a speaker who has now moved to presenting and training through virtual platforms, it has become more and more critical to be able to involve audiences in interesting and fun ways. Patricia delivered an incredible amount of value with a variety of tools, apps, strategies and games to keep an audience interacting throughout the presentation. Despite it being a short workshop of only 30 mins, I was left with a ton of ideas that I could easily implement for my next online presentation. Very actionable content, and a fun workshop overall.`` LinkedIn Recommendation

``Patricia really went the extra mile for me, and for my clients. I was SO pleased to see the transition of what she was given to work with (rough notes, an out of date PowerPoint and an idea) and the powerful, interactive online course she created. Thank you Patricia for making us look good!!``

``The Engaging Online Events: 5 Day Course about facilitating virtual learning, was fantastic value! I learned what aspects I need to add to our process. I also appreciated how quickly I could go through this course, taking away what actions that I could take right away. This course was enjoyable to go through, practical and applicable to moving our training online. The level of expertise and depth Patricia has transfer fluidly to the course and while packed with information, it is not overwhelming and flows at a great pace. If you are moving to virtual learning, this is a ``must take`` to not only learn the basics but to differentiate yourself from the competition and provide a value add learning experience to clients and customers``

``100% Patricia was engaging and informative. She executed an excellent example of what online learning and training should be like for learners! Thank you for a great meeting - honestly & sincerely the best webinar / training session I have experienced in my years of training! Thank you for a great and engaging time! I have attended plenty of training sessions online over the years and found many to be informative and educational but lack engagement and interest. The 1.5 hours with your approach, platform and personality went by quickly and I genuinely enjoyed the session! Thanks again for a great time and example for us to follow!``

Your approach to your work is very thoughtful and you were very respectful of the underlying information being shared. I was a bit uncertain at first since I have never worked with someone else on my presentations; however, your perceptive and thorough approach to the work was perfect. I trusted you almost as soon as we started working together. I was working with a time-crunch and you ensured I had a polished and professional visual presentation well in advance.``

``Patricia (Regier Educational Services) generously shares her insider tips on video and social media with the members of the Niagara Consultants Network. When she mentioned she had jazzed up a video recording of a Pecha Kucha style presentation she taped at one meeting I was intrigued and asked her to see what she could do with mine. I was really pleased with what she did considering the recording was for our personal use to improve our self-awareness of how we come across when presenting. The content is now showcased in a way that improves viewer retention and it’s not just 5 minutes of my talking head! I love that I can re-purpose that video recording so that others benefit from my topic and see me in action.``

Patricia is a passionate educator. This winter, I invited her as a guest lecturer to my social gerontology course at Brock University. The class was filled with 80 students majoring in public and community health, and medical health sciences. Her talk was informative and insightful and full of practical and philosophical advice to young students, based on her extensive experience working with seniors and community organizations. She was very friendly and engaging, and successfully provoked students’ active participation in the class discussion. She also helped some students by providing them with career-oriented advice directed at becoming a community educator. It was very evident that Patricia is an experienced and excellent educator, well-placed to become a first-rate consultant with her broad network in the Niagara community and beyond. Given her passion for education, her genuine caring personality, and her wide range of knowledge in community-based health promotion and education, I will definitely invite Patricia to my courses in the future, and recommend her to other educational institutions and community organizations as an educator, a consultant, or a collaborator for research project.

During the years I have had the pleasure of knowing Patricia (Regier Educational Services), I had opportunities to work with her on a number of post graduate projects. In all instances, she was hardworking, efficient, and effective in her work and responsibilities. Tricia is very intuitive and possesses the unique ability to bring together polarized diverse groups. Her ability was instrumental in helping bring about group collaboration on multiple occasions. Tricia has a great passion for education, and sharing her knowledge. My students at Niagara College greatly benefited from her dynamic presentation on Falls Prevention. The students reflected on how her interactive presentation had a great impact on them, and how the information they had received would affect their immediate and future practice. I look forward to future opportunities to work and collaborate with Patricia.
