RTCOMM has always been quick to understand the challenges we face in our industry and “deliver the goods” in a fair, efficient, and timely manner. What sets the RTCOMM team apart is their energy and creativity, which have made it possible for us to tackle a number of innovative projects crucial to the future of our organization.
Josée Noreau, President and CEO - SOGIQUE
I loved RTCOMM’s course on crisis management. The workshop really alerted me fact that a crisis always happens when you least expect it and disrupts a business. So it’s crucial to be prepared in order to deal with it as calmly as possible. This is what RTCOMM’s crisis management course with a round table simulation showed us.
Daniel Lavallée, Administrative Director, Risk Assessment and Compliance – Caisse Desjardins Granby-Haute-Yamaska
Our business relations with RTCOMM have been extremely positive over the past several years. Whether in terms of strategic positioning, training or consulting, their services have always met our expectations. We have built special ties with RTCOMM that go well beyond mere client relations; they have taken the time to really get to know us.
Maxime Laviolette, General Manager, Dessercom
Sûreté du Québec called on Richard Thibault Communications Inc. to provide distance communication training to its 85 station managers. This service enabled us to train all managers within two weeks—a process that would otherwise have taken months—and all without requiring them to travel. RTCOMM’s services saved us time and money while helping us reach our training goal.
Lt. Richard Bourdon, Communications Advisor, Public Security Branch – Sûreté du Québec
RTCOMM was the firm called for all communication-related tasks, including spokesperson training, media relations, strategic planning, and crisis management. Organizers were extremely satisfied with RTCOMM, both for the quality of the professionals assigned to the Congress as well as for their ability to draw on lessons learned from past similar experience.
