Valérie is extremely reponsive to the changes on our web site. She is introducing the latest techniques to the site and modernizing it. She refines our draft inputs to make them attractive and organize the web communications beautifully. She is quite creative and very much appreciated as our webmaster.
All above as a volunteer ; I enjoy working with her.
Jean-Michel GROLEAU, President of PMI France Sud Chapter, 23 Oct 2012

In an association like the PMI, it’s a great assets to be able to count on volunteers like Valerie. She did a great job as Webmaster & EMEA Congress 2012 Communication coordinator, and I’m convinced she’ll help us again a in the near future.
Christian-Jacques Bonetto, Knowledge Manager – Project Management Discipline, 22 Oct 2012

Head of the Scientific content & Project Management unit

I have worked with Valerie on a project I was leading. Valerie was the referent web and communication. Her contribution to the project (development of an educational platform for the community of European cardiologists) has been invaluable.
Moreover, Valerie has inspired me to go for the PMP certification. She is a true PMP, with the rigour and discipline that is required of a professional project manager.
What makes the difference with Valerie is her dynamism and her creativity.
I strongly recommend Valerie.
Celine CarreraHead of Education in Cardiology Department at European Society of Cardiology, 24 Nov 2012

Valerie is an exceptional manager who deeply understands the business side as well as the technical side. On numerous occasions, she was able to produce effective solutions to problems that seemed insurmountable, and was able to deliver them on time and on budget. She manages large teams and small teams effectively and I would welcome her participation on any project.
Eric DelenteOwner, Managing Director at Enforme Interactive, 24 Oct 2012

I had the opportunity of knowing Valerie Laforest for the last 4 years when she worked for the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) as Head of the Scientific content & Project Management unit. I worked with her in two main projects: the development of the new ESC search engine (as Chair of the ESC search engine Task Force) and in the ESC Congress reports (as editor-in-chief). As a result of this interaction I feel qualified to assess her abilities.
Valerie Laforest strongly supported these two projects. Without her intellectual contribution, enthusiasm, and hard work it would be very difficult to achieve the goals that were established from the beginning and to obtain the success that we saw in these two projects.
In these years of interaction I always deeply appreciated her leadership, punctuality, professionalism, independence, and dedication to work. Moreover, her abilities to plan for the future and strategical thoughts were very helpful to develop these activities. Valerie Laforest always had an excellent personal relationship and was extremely professional and competent.
In addition to having these outstanding skills, on a personal level, Valerie Laforest is industrious, energetic, and honest and has the utmost integrity.
If you have any questions regarding her abilities please do not hesitate to contact me in the near future.
Lino Gonçalves, MD, PhD, FESC, 23 Oct 2012

It is with great pleasure I recommend Valerie to whoever it may concern. I value Valerie for her immense knowledge in IT, especially from the communication view. Her mastering of the position as Web & Communication – Project Manager PMP® at the European Society of Cardiology was excellent and she seems to have an endless patience with persons (like me) who has another profession far from the IT but still dependent on it for my daily work.
I really appreciate Valerie as a professional and as a very good person and wish her good luck in the future.
