Team Page Description: 

I’m Valerie and I’m a part of the Hemsley Fraser team.  I have a passion for personnel, or human resources, if you prefer.  I believe that there is no greater calling than helping build the capacity and appetite for growth and change in people and in the organizations they form and support.  As we design your learning solutions, whether for you as an individual or for your company, we bring a deep understanding of the synergy between people and the companies they work for.  We help people choose to engage in continuous learning by providing an environment in which they can have fun, apply their creativity to problem solving, and maybe be just a little brave as they stretch to try something new.

My little known learning tip:
The internet is a powerful tool, but hugely distracting.  When searching for specific information, it’s easy to get diverted by interesting teasers and go haring off down unrelated paths.  Sometimes, I’ve lost hours this way!  If you share this same fascination with new information and ideas, yet still want to maintain focus, try keeping a ‘parking lot’ e-file or notebook.  Park the URLs of those intriguing sites and then allow yourself specific time each day to go back and explore!
