Testimonials & Recommendations

Katie Vaillancourt is a corporate trainer and talent development professional working to create customized training solutions to meet your company’s needs.  Take a look at what Katie’s clients and colleagues have to say about her…

  • We hired Katie to organize and facilitate a series of roundtable discussions with community leaders. She did an outstanding job and the outcome of these roundtables was better than we had anticipated. Katie has a keen ability to get up to speed quickly with an organization’s challenges and goals. She can communicate with diverse groups very effectively, engage everyone around the table and drive a robust, well-rounded conversation. Katie also has the ability to establish a comprehensive work plan and see it through start to finish. This was a crucial piece to the execution of the roundtables as well as to their success as our organization is run primarily by a volunteer board. As a bonus, Katie is extremely personable and very engaging - I greatly enjoyed working with her.

    - Quincy Hentzel, CEO, Portland Community Chamber of Commerce

  • Katie has developed and delivered five management training programs for Tyler since August 2013 and we continue to find new subject matters for her to cover. She has demonstrated the ability to quickly understand our company culture and build rapport with our managers. She has the ability to communicate key learning points and how to apply them. She is not afraid to get participants out of their comfort zone.

    Katie has become an extension of our team and I strongly recommend her if you are looking to develop your managers.

    - Bob Sansone, Vice President - Human Resources at Tyler Technologies

  • Katie has a unique ability to quickly understand complex business problems and develop a systematic approach to solving those problems. Once given a project to complete Katie is very good at soliciting involvement from key stake holders and working with them to ensure projects are completed on time and without scope-creep. Katie is very good at understanding how different people on a team work and learn and knows how to adapt her style and the content being presented to meet the needs of the individual while still working to accomplish the goals of a group.

    I would recommend Katie to any company looking to develop a new training program, or to breathe new life into an existing program.

    - Tim Anderson, Vice President - Great Plains Region at Contech

  • Katie is a results driven, proactive and passionate business leader. She was a highly effective team and project leader that brought value through creativity, efficiency, and an innate ability to engage all members of the project team. Katie single-handedly led the creation of a new training platform and content that spanned all departments and products across the company. I would recommend Katie to any company looking to add talent and new energy to their training programs.

    - Jeff Gilkinson, President of Pipe Solutions at Contech

  • Katie is an incredible asset to building and executing a training program. We worked together to build national training programs for existing products, as well as new products and partnerships, during my time as Detention PM and Stormwater AVP.

    Katie has key attributes you need in your training consultant: competency for depth and breadth of technical products, business acumen to position products for the customer and company, and discipline to build out a plan and execute.

    Katie is also very personable and professional when presenting to groups, brainstorming ideas, or managing expectations.

    I enjoyed working with her and look forward to next time I have the privilege.

    - Cory Carlson, Former President of Sales at URETEK Holdings, Inc.

  • Katie is an outstanding professional in the Talent Development industry. She has held the position of President for the ATD Maine Chapter and has led the chapter with a high standard of excellence. Her leadership practices are value based with an eye for the future having created a vision for positive impact and for the greater good. She has presented quality professional learning programs in the past that have been relevant and applicable for the audience at hand. I have had the pleasure of having her as my mentor and gained much from her leadership. She is pleasure to partner and work with.

    - Sally Wilson, Former VP Learning & Development Professional/Corporate Trainer at Androscoggin Bank

  • Our company worked with Katie and the DISC assessment tool throughout 2017. The end result of that experience is an engaged and cohesive management team that now has the tools to be more effective leaders. Katie is a compelling presenter that challenged us to be better. She introduced us to a new vocabulary that has us speaking the same management language. We look forward to building on that foundational success with Katie in 2018.

    - Joe Gervais, President & CEO at Midcoast Federal Credit Union

  • I have worked with Katie for over five years on a number of ongoing education initiatives and professional development opportunities. She has always met each project with the utmost professionalism, taking the time to ensure she understands our challenges and goals in order to create a customized solution. She has exceptional abilities to analyze and breakdown complex tasks into simple, easy to understand concepts allowing us to implement new programs. Her professional development sessions consistently receive high ratings from our managers. I know I can approach Katie with any of our professional development needs and she will deliver.
