We were extremely satisfied with Darlene’s service since she and her company have delivered 100% what we asked for. We now have a reliable partner in Toronto who we definitely recommend.”
“I have worked with Darlene in 2014 organizing a Trade Mission (to the Netherlands) for shipbuilding companies and Government Officials of the Newfoundland Area. This was a project where Darlene showed excellent organizational skills and gave her full support to us and the delegates in everything we needed. She guided the delegation in all aspects necessary and left us impressed with her charisma and hard work ethic. I truly enjoyed working with Darlene and look forward to any possible cooperation. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.”
“Darlene supported my efforts when I first looked into international marketing of my product. She proved herself to be very knowledgeable, competent and ethical. She has a solid network of associates and clients and her track record speaks for itself. I would not hesitate to use her again, should the opportunity present itself.”
