We recruited the services of Frank Newman in order to complete a HR project. From first contact, Frank took the time to understand exactly what our goals were and thereafter diligently completed the tasks requested in a professional and on time manner. We would not have been able to complete the project without Frank’s expertise and knowledge. It was easy working with Frank and we are very pleased with the result. We firmly recommend Frank Newman and his services

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you recently did as fact finder for a harassment complaint the WCDSB recently investigated according to our procedure. The quality and thoroughness of your work was exemplary. All parties felt they were listened to and were responded to in a respectful way that honoured the process and was mindful of maintaining their dignity.  Despite the fact that there were multiple respondents and many witnesses, you were able to adhere to the timelines the process suggested. As mentioned before, all parties, myself included, felt that they were truly listened to by you and you always provided clear, timely and unambiguous communication. Overall, I appreciated the way you were true to the process and mindful of maintaining the dignity of all parties throughout. It was a pleasure working with you and I do hope our paths cross again.”

Regards, Derek
