what they say about Journey

  • I have known Imelda for many years now and on a professional basis, I find her an expert in her own rights and field. When she was in my team, she had always proven herself to be a problem solver. At the same time, as someone with good initiatives, she would constantly and persistently "disturbed" me on problematic issues that she noticed or foresaw until they got my attention and were being solved or addressed. In brief, I entrusted her to manage the Learning & Development arm of the division and she took it and flew with it. In our time together, I have also observed that Imelda worked very well with her peers and other employees. This was evident in the fact that she could often be seen engaging them and providing assistance and advice to them. It just clearly showed the level of comfort and trust between them. Hence, I would be more than happy and confident to recommend Imelda to any prospective employers. She would be well worth it, just like she has proven to be with me.

  • Imelda is a power girl. She single-handedly curated, detailed & delivered our training week including WOW Team Building. Not only she took her time in ensuring all the items were relevant, she also connected very well with our line staff. Thank you Imelda - it was an enjoyable experience & well-worth.

    Jack Widagdo Client, GM, Alia Solo & Now Alila Anqi (2016)
  • The first time I met Imelda was in 2014. This was our first experience collaborating together. As it happens, we both are really passionate about developing people and training which leads to high expectations to receive results from me and high expectations to deliver from Imelda. It is quite rare when you can find somebody who can click and understand quickly what you are talking about and collaborate with such flexibility while the training session is on going. In the past, we have done two up selling training series and this year, we are doing a leadership training series. It is very powerful, especially when you are building your company's culture. You build the individual leader to lead together by making their own standards guided by the company's vision, mission, and value. It is more than just a concept and the participants can break it down to a shown behavior that they expect from the team they are leading. It has been a blessing to meet and work together with Imelda and as she continues to strive in her profession and life, I wish her all the best and thank her for her professionalism and friendship.

Her training sessions conducted both inside and outside the classroom, were lively, highly engaging and informative at the same time.
