What our clients are saying about Howatt HR

Dr. Bill Howatt's leadership session on building psychologically safe workplaces was extremely well-received by our audience of Ontario Public Service leaders. It had the largest attendance to date for our mental health speakers series. Dr. Howatt's dynamic presentation style engaged participants throughout the session, and those in attendance said it helped them to better understand their pivotal role in fostering psychological health and safety among their own teams.
