Evaluation Excerpts

 

“The instructor was great in the sense that she was able to see things from our point and that there’s no hidden agenda or message that she strongly pushed for. She carefully directed our thinking and provided guidance as needed during the day-long discussion.” (Picatinny, 2020) 

“Jackie did a phenomenal job guiding us through a potentially touchy and emotional vested topic. I think she brought an aura of professionalism, knowledge and reality into the course which made it interesting, informative and captivating.” (Picatinny, 2020)

“Lots of heavy information presented and contemplated during this seminar and it was a long day. The end result was that I was mentally drained by the end. That said, the length was good, method of delivery was executed well, and I very much enjoyed this seminar.” (Picatinny, 2020)

“Facilitator was very good, gave clarity to a difficult topic.” (Picatinny, 2020)

“Ms. Lue Raia was fantastic. She facilitated well through topics which could have been emotional minefields." (Picatinny, 2020)

 

“Ms. Lue Raia is a very good, pleasant speaker who is good at getting people to talk about sensitive topics without causing any issues.” (Picatinny, 2020)

“It was a pleasure to have Jackie Lue Raia facilitate a workshop called Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the Workplace for our high potential leaders.  In my experience as a learning & development professional, I’ve heard many vendors say that they will customize a session for your needs, but I’ve never seen anyone actually follow through and mean it! Jackie met with us several times over the course of planning so that she could best understand the needs of our leaders and get to know our organization, and continually shaped the content to meet our organization.  Our participants reported many new insights from the interactive experience and appreciated that our organization is encouraging these conversations.” (Amanda W., large healthcare non-profit in NYC)

“As a participant in Jackie’s DEI workshop, I enjoyed connecting the current landscape of society to our day-to-day language and behavioral norms that may be outdated, offensive or that do not promote inclusivity.” (Participant, healthcare company, November 2020)

“Jackie is an engaged and accessible workforce development professional. I contacted her following an international webinar we both attended and her immediate response was so positive and enthusiastic. She was absolutely brilliant at taking the very diverse strands of my professional life and weaving them into a comprehensive marketable whole. I highly recommend her, particularly for women who may be changing careers or have a parallel “mom” track.” (L. Sauer Bredvik, Germany, 2020)

“Jackie Lue Raia is one of the most professional, hard working, smart and resourceful people I know. I rarely come across real talents who stand out like Jackie. Her ability to connect with professionals of all levels is outstanding.” (B. DeGuzman, iLearn Schools, 2019)
