Dina and I worked together on the Board of the Toronto Chapter of the American Marketing Association. I served as chapter president. Dina is responsible for the recruitment and management of volunteers in the chapter. She is dedicated and approachable – always there, always helpful and people are happy to connect with her. She is a great ambassador and contributor.
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Dina to develop some of the curriculum elements for our Healthy Leaders Series. This was my first time serving as a faculty member and Dina was a pleasure to work with. She is highly knowledgable and truly works in partnership with subject matter experts to create meaningful content and to provide advice regarding ways and means of delivering the content effectively. Dina has strong positive energy and is passionate about her work. She has the ability to bring diverse perspectives together around a common vision. I would highly recommend Dina and personally, hope to have the chance to work with Dina again
Dina was very quick to adapt to the MH CCAC culture and created a learning program that addresssed the needs and benefited of the various functions including my specific role. She is an amazing facilitator and the sucess of the program was due to her insightful vision, experience, and personality. The various tools that Dina introduced through the leadership program have been instrumental in assisting me with my work. I am grateful to her for her expertise and look forward to working with her again in the future. Thank you Dina
I have tremendous respect for Dina. She demonstrated her subject matter expertise through the leadership program that she planned, developed and implemented at Mississauga Halton CCAC. She is a strong collaborator with the ability to influence people through change. She is a dynamic facilitator with strong instructional design and thought leadership. I wish her well in all her endeavours and would welcome an opportunity to work with her in the future
Do you want to hire an experienced learning and organizational development (OD) professional; a person who delivers great programs on time and on budget? Then talk to Dina Barazza. I am pleased to recommend Dina. She conceived and developed our organization’s first eight-module leadership development program, branded as the Healthy Leaders Series. Dina produced the courses and job aids; she negotiated and partnered with OHA to provide a blended learning solution that included e learning from Harvard Mentor Manager that proved to be a valuable resource for our leadership; and she worked with each the faculty members (internal senior leadership team) to deliver a measurably successful learning series. Dina is open, collaborative, experienced and knowledgeable in her field. She brings a dynamic energy and enthusiasm that is infectious.
I highly recommend Dina
I invited Dina to be a panellist on our webcast- Alternative Educational Strategies for Health Care Organizations- to talk about the Healthy Leader Series she spearheaded at the Mississauga Halton CCAC. Her presentation was not only informative, but also enthusiastic, fun and engaging. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I highly recommend her as a speaker!
Dina facilitated a “Running Effective Meeting” for us in February 2011. Dina presents herself confidently, professionally, and authentically. She has a strong presence that gently but firmly commands the attention of others. She is adept at using a variety of presentation tools while still maintaining a clear focus on objectives and the schedule. Feedback was excellent! Participants were impressed and have spread the word that more people should participate in this workshop because they found it so beneficial. I have already been asked if we can “get her back” to do more training.
I have had the pleasure of benefiting from Dina’s clear and insightful approach to personal development. In a very short time Dina was able to assist me in mapping out my personal and career aspirations in a manner I was never able to see on my own. Dina has an innate ability to read an individual, clearly understanding both their strengths and capabilities. She can quickly aid you in mapping out the logical steps to be taken to achieve future success. Dina’s guidance has provided me with both a challenge and an opportunity to recreate my future, leveraging my true passion, along with my capabilities. I have already made the first move toward my new future, utilizing those stepping stones Dina has helped me to develop. I would strongly recommend Dina’s insight and talents to anyone seeking an honest, solid development plan and support for their own future.
Dina delivered a training seminar to our staff. She provided superlative work from concept to final output. She understood our needs and delivered a program that matched. She is a true professional and I would hire her again.
