“Camille was the original “HR Business Partner” before the term was even invented! She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the human resource world and always looks at things through a very pragmatic business lens. Camille is a master at helping companies navigate through the gray areas where employees, executive teams and the law so often intersect. I highly recommend her for any project requiring the assistance of an expert, objective HR pro. She’s the best!”

“Camille has the uncanny ability to identify underlying workplace issues in a non-threatening way and move her clients toward productive resolutions. Very challenging personality styles, negatively charged interpersonal issues, or explosive internal politics are no problem for Camille. She has the ability to coach, mentor, and develop leadership skills in others no matter what the environment.”

Principal, Compensation Works


 

“I have worked with Camille on several occasions and found her to be an outstanding HR professional. As with many HR-related projects, where we thought we were going was not where we wound up going. That is because more important issues came up that necessitated a change in course. The ultimate direction always turned out to be the right one to follow, and Camille navigated those course changes very well. Camille is easy to work with and she also has that unique ability to relate well to all employees. I recommend her highly.”

“Camille initially helped us by providing management training and by counseling employees. Everyone she worked with gave me great feedback. Camille has a lot of experience and is well grounded in best HR practices, but what really sets her apart are her amazing interpersonal skills. She knows how to deal with challenging personalities; she manages to get people on her side without steamrolling them. She uses interpersonal dynamics to get their buy-in. Personally, Camille gave me helpful suggestions in dealing with employees which I have taken into my toolbox and continue to use. I feel I’ve grown as an HR manager thanks to working with Camille. With Camille you have the satisfaction of knowing she completely understands your unique challenges and has the experience and know-how to provide the right answers.”

“Camille is extremely knowledgeable and can really get to the core of a personnel issue. When she interviews a team, she excels at getting at root causes; it’s really stunning! I have deep regard for her ability to assess a situation and offer concrete solutions and valuable, insightful guidance to a manager. When we worked together I learned a lot about my style, how my team viewed me and what I could do to make things even better. I was dealing with a challenging multigenerational team and I found her tremendously insightful. Together we created really good strategies for working effectively with all those groups.”
