This live training, led by compassion fatigue expert and sought-after speaker and educator Françoise Mathieu, teaches you how to design a customized compassion fatigue workshop for your community or organization, while also developing the skills and knowledge to become an effective and engaging presenter.  A small class size allows a customized experience to your specific needs.

Our live training is held in Kingston, Ontario at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre  – a beautiful and historic building located a few blocks from the shores of Lake Ontario and close to Queen’s University campus.

Home of the Queen’s Executive MBA, The Financial Times (U.K.) has ranked the Donald Gordon Conference Centre number one in the world for food quality in a survey of international executive education centres.



We are midway between Toronto and Montreal and about 2 hours north of Syracuse, NY. You can fly to any of these destinations and then drive or take a train to Kingston. 

You can also fly to Kingston through Toronto using a connector flight run by Air Canada (but it can be notoriously unreliable).
