At the beginning of July, we had an remarkable youth networking session at CCIS, presented by Suvarna Deshmukh, MBA (HR) Human Relations Coordinator at The Salvation Army Community Services (Calgary). Suvarna is a huge people-person with over 7 years of international and multicultural experience in Human Resources, Office Administration, and Customer Service. She has quick adaptability to changes, passion for creativity and a strong emotional intelligence which enables her to perform effectively in an ever-evolving workspace.
