What made you choose Sheriff Consulting?

My name is Ponniah Sritharan, and I am a Chartered Professional Accountant. I am a member of the CPA in Canada, and I am currently working in Just Energy Corp as a tax manager. My background is in taxes and I have been working in tax for the last 20 years. To add to that, I also sit on the executive committee of the Sri Lankan Accountants Association of Canada. 

CPA Canada insists that every three years we need to have 120 hours of formal training, and out of that we need to have four hours of ethical training.  It was really hard to find a high quality presenter or company that can train people on ethical issues. CPA Canada itself recommended Sheriff Consulting as a good presenter for ethics, so we reached out to them.

How has Sheriff Consulting helped with your career development?

Sheriff Consulting was able to help us to put our members on the right path, and help them understand that just because somebody else is doing it does not mean that it is the right thing to do.  The ethics presentation by Sheriff Consulting has provided our members with great guidance about what to do if they feel uncertain about something.

The members liked the presentations. Sheriff Consulting uses a lot of audio video visual effects. That really helped our members to understand what they should be aware of in their public practice or professional career.

What makes Sheriff Consulting better than other professional development programs?

Everything that Garth talks about is based on current topics. It is not three years old, two years old, or even six months old. 

All of the presentations make use of current topics and it truly engages the audience, because they are learning something that they have not heard about before. They pay attention and learn from what is happening around them.

Is Sheriff Consulting worth the investment?

Garth Sheriff is the main person. He put together the presentation in a way that met our requirements. He understands the audience and asks questions to engage them.

Working with Sheriff Consulting is really worth the investment we have made. They always make sure that we are satisfied.

Would you recommend Sheriff Consulting?

I would definitely recommend Sheriff Consulting to anyone who requires the same kind of service. We are interested in hiring them to do other presentations, and I have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.
