Mrs. Desrosiers is a person you really need to meet. She knows psychology very well, but her true strength certainly lies in her ability to explain it to us. Her ability to popularize, her just-right humour touches us in all the right places. She makes us realize all of life’s simple truths; essentially, how to be happy in our lives, how to improve our relationships with others, but most importantly, with ourselves!

Now with her HOLSTEIN method where she presents the HOLSTEIN© profile of the breeder of the future, Mrs. Desrosiers moves up a step. Well beyond our Intellectual Quotient, our Emotional Quotient clearly defines the ingredients in the recipe of true happiness and our success in life. During her presentation Mrs. Desrosiers leaves no one indifferent. On the contrary, she has the gift to shake up emotions we would prefer to ignore.

I had the pleasure of assisting to Pierrette Desrosiers’ presentation on emotional intelligence. It was a moment of pure pleasure for me. Discovering that the difference between leaders can be measured by the way our emotions are managed. Setting goals, respecting ourselves, knowing how to surround ourselves with valuable people, to listen to ourselves and communicate, that was part of the message she delivered to us with humour and emotion. Her presentation is for all ages. She dares touch on a subject that sometimes forces us to think and helps us make changes in our lives. I told myself I had made a good choice in public speaker. Thanks Pierrette!

During Holstein Canada’s Meeting of the Minds, Pierrette Desrosiers was invited to speak about why emotional intelligence is an essential quality of future dairy farm managers. In her dynamic and humorous style, she made 650 participants realize the importance of managing one’s own emotions before being able to interact efficiently with industry workers, employees and family members. The organizing committee thanks Mrs. Desrosiers for having contributed towards making of this event an exceptional success.

During the Meeting of the Minds at the National Holstein Convention Canada, I was lucky enough to receive a rather unique presentation by Mrs. Pierrette Desrosiers. This professional and experienced speaker was able to adapt to her audience.

Many praising remarks from the participants showed us that as organisers, we must go beyond technique. More and more, people need to hear about subjects that touch the very center of our farm enterprises, the human element. The unconventional content and unique approach of this psycoach were much appreciated for this kind of an event.  I use the strategies Mrs. Desrosiers touched upon every day.Thank you Mrs. Desrosiers for this exceptional presentation.

“Seriously, I am an unconditional admirer of Pierrette Desrosiers’ talent. She is an exceptional populariser with a hallucinating and current knowledge base. She reaches the heights of competency and pertinence, all at once.”

Mrs. Desrosiers was able, with sensitivity and humour, to treat the delicate subject of work harassment. She helped us realise our responsibilities towards harassment while presenting concrete means to maintain a respectful climate at work.

With this conference, Mrs. Desrosiers allowed us the privilege of a moment of intimate reflection that questioned our proper role in the search of real happiness – thank you for this gift!

Within the context of the psychological distress that touches our agricultural clientele, your conference is very pertinent. Your concepts are simple, allowing people to situate themselves. Moreover, participants appreciated the reflection that we must undertake following your conference on personal mission and life vision.

The work you do among our farmers is of utmost importance. It helps people be happy – I urge you to continue.

Gaétan Roger
Agronomist, Director-General
Unicoop, Coopérative agricole

Remarkable performance! By means of examples, anecdotes and chosen reflections, Mrs. Desrosiers guides participants in an inner journey where auto mockery, abundant common sense and numerous winks, facilitate awareness and helps to distinguish the essential element, namely to “identify the target”. In a good-humoured and elated atmosphere, the psychological environment goes un-noticed while reaching the target! We leave the presentation with a feeling of serenity.

Colette Lebel
Agronomist and Director of the cooperative business of
La Coop fédérée

A conference that makes you think, that makes you review the priorities in our life. This conference makes us realize the importance we attribute to material gain versus the good things in life. Listening to Pierrette Desrosiers is, in and of itself, a pleasure!

The workshop on farming realities and promising interventions that you have given to about fifty people working in health networks and community in the Beauce UPA’s region was appreciated and useful. You cleared up our ignorance of these realities and killed many prejudices with your habitual enthusiasm, humour and intelligence. You’ve given us tools and greater confidence for our future interventions with people from the farming sector. […]
