I was invited to share my experience as a Canadian Newcomer at the “Share Success” event organized by Manitoba Start on 27 February 2014. The event turned out to be an interesting night of animated and inspiring stories especially the talk of Anna Gordon, Founder & Chief Storyteller at CareerStory.
As for my contribution, I shared my thoughts on ‘communication’ and its role in pursuit of success, professional success, that is (definition of success is a different topic/debate altogether). I gave a few examples of “workplace settings and activities” where communication skills are essential. Here’s my PPT presentation.
Hi! My name is Helen Balderama. After more than 10 years working on education projects in Asia and Europe, I moved to Canada in 2012, partly to reunite with family but also to get to know the international education field in North America. I am now based in Toronto, Ontario and I continue with my passion – International Education. On the side, I go on food adventures, capture random, everyday encounters and share information on Flipboard.
