CEO Candidate

My experience with Tanja as a candidate for a senior management role was extremely positive. She conducted herself in a manner as a highly polished professional yet kept her approachability at a level that made me feel comfortable as a candidate. Her knowledge of the organization she was representing was impeccable and easily answered questions that I posed to her. In addition, she provided documentation to me for review in preparation and maintained constant contact throughout the recruitment process. I found Tanja to be extremely engaging and positive and would highly recommend her services as an HR Professional myself.

We brought Tanja in from a consulting and best practices perspective during a season of transition in our Talent department. She did not need long to get up to speed with our realities, and was very helpful in fulfilling urgent needs, and longer range blueprint requests. She has a very friendly demeanour, combined with a get it done mindset. I would recommend engaging Tanja's years of HR experience for your organization needs.

Tanja facilitated our team retreat and did an incredible job of creating an engaging fun yet professional atmosphere. She has the ability to connect with each individual member of the team while teasing out big, important concepts and issues. Before the session, Tanja took the time to get to know the needs of our team and what we wanted to accomplish at the retreat. She designed and delivered a thoughtful, well-received retreat that will help our team succeed in the coming year. If you are looking for an accomplished, caring facilitator, I highly recommend Tanja.

Jasbir Singh Dhillon

Country Director, IPMC Smart Technologies Inc.

I am proud to recommend Tanja and Potentia HR! Through coaching she encouraged me to speak up and show how the role of HR was much more than an administrative position. She was a big supporter and brought new ideas from her experience to programs I was working on including performance management and building a coaching culture with our leaders. Tanja was always willing to share her vast knowledge and her resources. Through our time working together she showed a passion for Human Resources that was contagious. I am thankful for the mentor/mentee time we shared together and we now have her involved in providing coaching to our leadership as well as engaging our team in various workshops.
