Participants' Feedback

"The 2017 Halifax Conference had to be THE best IPM conference that I have ever attended. All sessions and presenters were great, everything ran perfectly and the hotel did a fine job with the food. Next year, I'm definitely going to bring more of our teams to the event. Well done!" Doug S, Halifax

"The May 3 Toronto Conference was a real success. Speakers were excellent, topics lended to continuity from speaker to speaker and Judy and Jacqueline were perfect for the afternoon lineup-kept everyone energized and engaged. It was truly a great day!" Linda K, Toronto

"Thanks for a great experience at the Halifax conference yesterday. The speakers and information delivered were terrific. Our group is most impressed with the work that IPM does. I'm now excited to be a volunteer on the Maritime Chapter of IPM Associations and look forward too working with this wonderful team" Ruth M, Halifax

"We thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 Edmonton conference and have referred to our notes on the constructive dismissal presentation several times. Practical, simple information that's easy to use in our business - that in and of itself made the day worthwhile for us." Christine T, Edmonton

"The 2016 Toronto Conference was my first time in attendance and frankly, I was very impressed. The flow of the itinerary was seamless and lunch was great! The content delivered by professionals was very relevant. I'll look forward to next years' program and plan to bring my colleagues along." Patti R, Toronto

"Thank you for putting on such a great program at the Ottawa Conference yesterday. It was really well done." Natalie H, Ottawa

"The Halifax 2015 Conference was very well organized and very interesting! Congratulations to you and your team!" Kathy D, Moncton

"The Edmonton Conference was terrific as always! I enjoyed being able to assist in such a small way and look forward to participating on our regional executive team more in the future. I am very honoured and excited to be assisting in any way I can for such a great organization! Super excited to share the information received with my colleagues so we can bring more people out to next year's event." Connie O, Edmonton

"I thoroughly enjoyed the 2015 Ottawa Conference. It was the first IPM conference that I've attended. Initially I was a bit apprehensive about spending a day in a room without windows listening to speeches but it was great and went by quickly. The material covered was relevant and the presenters were very talented and engaging speakers. I'd recently completed a corporate training course held by Algonquin College and I found the information provided at the IPM event served to bolster that course material as well. It didn't hurt that the lunch was delicious, and the room and service provided by the hotel were very nice. Thanks so much for our group subscription door prize, it was another bonus!" Frances B, Ottawa

"As Regional Co-Chair for the Ottawa/Eastern Ontario Chapter of IPM Associations, I'm always looking for ways to promote IPM conferences. I sit on the Advisory Committee for the School of Business at a local college. Around the table are executives from leading local firms. One of them, the president of an HR consulting firm, attended the last conference at my invitation. When I announced this year's event in April, he spoke up and said it was one of the best conferences he's ever attended. He congratulated IPM on the diversity of the agenda, the quality of the speakers and the organization of the entire day. Word of mouth recommendations certainly work. Other senior executives from that group will also be registering for our events." Diane J., Ottawa

"Sincere congratulations to you and Toronto Regional Executive for yet another outstanding conference! This has to have been the best one yet, though I know I say that most times. Look forward to next year's event!" Maire-Anne D, Toronto

"Thank you very much for a great conference. My colleague, Tanya Jackson,and I thoroughly enjoyed the topics and the great presenters. Craig Dowden really resonated with us. We have already noted the date for the 2015 event!" Keitha M., Toronto

"The Calgary April 29 Conference was really great. As always, I look forward to the next one!" Teresa C, Calgary

"IPM's Halifax 30th Anniversary Conference was great last week! The feedback about the speakers was most positive from what I gathered from those around me." Laura T., Halifax

"IPM's Associations provide great networking opportunities for HR and management industry professionals on a variety of employer-conscious related topics. One of the biggest differentiators at IPM conferences is that participants have the opportunity to mix and mingle with a variety of people in an ideal ballroom round table setting for the entire day's event. We get that personal connection more readily and build relationships that will be sustainable for years. I personally have developed an excellent network of HR managers within my industry sector by regularly attending these events." Lindsay G., Toronto

"What a great bunch of speakers at the Toronto Spring Conference last week- enjoyed them all! As always, the legal specialists were terrific and covered the topics well.

"I just wanted to send a short note commending you on the recent IPM Toronto Conference. As a long-time member of IPM and attendee at a number of events, all of which were informative and applicable to professional development within my role, I nonetheless enjoyed this past conference most. The program itself presented on relevant HR and People Management issues, and your assembly of speakers was outstanding, as all were knowledgeable and engaging - in fact, I wished the day were extended to facilitate even longer sessions with these professional experts. It is very clear that you worked hard to ensure that the program had variety, was of high quality, and indeed, was a tremendous value for the cost. I am already looking forward to the next conference. Thank you and keep up the great work!" Blake C., St. Catharines

"This morning's Halifax workshop was very good - IPM does a great job. Many thanks!" Joanne L., Halifax

"I got a lot of value from both of the Calgary sessions. As the recruiter responsible for immigration, the Cross Border Hiring presentation was especially intriguing.

I plan to share the useful information presented in the Managing Change In Turbulent Times panel segment." Linda V., Calgary
