With this relatable approach, she brings the latest research and proven best practices to her talks, inspiring participants to take action and get results.
In her presentations and workshops, Dr. Pelletier draws from what clients call a “clear mastery of the subject matter.” She speaks with authority to engage and inspire participants with passion, knowledge, expertise, and joy.

"I reached out to Dr. Marie-Helene Pelletier to present a bilingual keynote address at the annual Symposium of the Association of Professional Executives of the Public Service of Canada (APEX). This is a group of over 600 executives, some who were in the room, most attending via videoconferencing from other Canadian cities. To this day, I still put Dr. Pelletier’s name forward when asked about compelling speakers on workplace mental health and resilience. Working and interacting with Marie-Hélène in preparation for the event was effortless and professional. Her session was one of the best received of the entire event. Participants had noted her as being a thoughtful and well-prepared speaker, who delivered a highly relevant presentation with clear mastery of the subject and practical take-aways."

Dr. Pelletier is an excellent speaker! She gave a virtual presentation in French for our conference and she was professional and prepared from start to end. She tailored her speaking points to ensure they were relevant to our audience and her presentation was very well received. I felt she did an especially great job of captivating the audience in a virtual environment with her energy and her use of visual aids. Thank you again, Dr. Pelletier, for sharing your expertise at our event!”
