TESTIMONIALS

Derek Martin
Operations Manager  - Living Waters Christian Bookstore Inc
Living Waters has used Horizon Quest’s seminars for the past year. We have a small staff team of 4 full time and 5 part time. With the variety of Horizon Quest seminars, we are able to have local, quality and economical staff training in both our required government regulations and additional staff training for our team at Living Waters. We appreciate working with them in the past, and look forward to more training as our team grows along with changes in government regulations.

Horizon Quest Seminars is an efficient way to educate business owners and staff on various topics in just a few hours. We have found these different seminars very helpful and recommend them for small business owners who are looking for ways to build their work ethics. The results are far reaching, and will cause ripple effects in the future.

Fraberts Fresh Food
The customer service seminar was very helpful for both me and my staff. Our entire team attended and starting the very next day we were able to work together to apply what we learned to greatly improve the customer service experience at Fraberts.
Tim Gerrie
Gerries Garden Centre
Our staff learned a lot at the seminar. The instructor was great and Horizon Quest did a fantastic job of organizing it, and creating a great atmosphere. Thanks to Kervin and staff!

The Horizon Quest seminars I have been to have been very informative as well as a great networking opportunity for any small business that is looking to expand its impact.
Kathy Frey
Learning Spanish had been a goal of mine for several years, and when I saw the opportunity to take this basic Spanish course locally with Horizon Quest, I immediately registered. I really enjoyed the interactive and student-focused lessons taught by a very experienced and fluent local instructor. I feel that I now have a solid base of the language with which I can begin to communicate in basic Spanish, and from which I can advance to a higher level if I decide to in the future.
Jessica Pellowe
I really enjoyed the Sign Language courses I took through HQ. I learned so much, and what I appreciated most was the relaxed and fun atmosphere! The content was really practical, and there were many opportunities to practice our learning with each other and with the instructor. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning the basics of Sign to communicate with others!
Murray Martin
Innovative Print
Murray Smith is a good communicator and has a wealth of experience that he shares with those taking the Pure Selling course. It is a very informal course with lots of one on one time with Murray and with others in the group. As a beginner in formal sales I found this course beneficial.
Lawrence Gingrich
Broadline Rentals
An intensive, interactive sales training course that is sure to take your people and sales skills to the next level!
E Weber
Kitchen Kuttings
In attending a customized seminar you will get the full potential of the content. Choose your topics and then sit back and watch them unfold. Barb Evoy is a powerful speaker, and is gifted at getting right to the core of the issue you want discussed at the seminar.
Caroline

We are always amazed at the variety and quality of the seminars offered by Horizon Quest. Very pertinent. The seminars are so well organized and the venue is great. The speakers we have come to listen to were top of the line in their field and we always come out very inspired. You do a great job Kervin!
Joanna Steckle
Steckle Produce & Flowers
Attending the recent Excel course provided by Horizon Quest was well worth the investment of both time and money. Applying the practical knowledge we have gained from this class is saving our farm business many hours of desk time, and improving our record keeping processes. We continue to watch for learning opportunities through the seminars provided by Horizon Quest!
