Human Resources Management Association of Barbados, Annual Conference 2018 (Bridgetown, Barbados)



Ignite staff recently got to work with Ashli Komaryk with Komaryk Communications for a training day to boost our customer service skillset: active listening, emotional intelligence, and problem-solving. Well worth it! Thank you Ashli for your wonderful professional, compassionate, and motivating presence. We are happy to recommend you for other businesses looking to get everyone on the same page about service quality!

Jennifer WManager at Ignite Pizzeria

Ashli is an extremely positive and magnetic personality. She is easy to work with and her enthusiasm and insights have taken a group of strangers and helped us to bond as a team. The most valuable to me was learning to work with each of our personality types. Fascinating discovery that I now use in my relationships outside work as well. Ashli's teachings and insights are a must!

Ashli introduced the concept very clearly from the beginning, which set a great foundation to work on. She also provided an environment (through activities) where we got to know the other participants quickly.

Workshop Participant

Learned a lot about myself and how better to work with others. Good concrete goals and actions came out of this course experience.

Workshop Participant

I had the privilege to work with Ashli on several official high profile promotional events, in my former capacity as Italian Travel Commissioner for Canada. Her outstanding professional know-how and managerial skills have always impressed me and I am pleased to recommend her as an ideal business partner.

I've taken the DiSC with the CPA program and it's probably the most accurate test I've ever taken. It did an outstanding job of figuring out what makes me tick.

Matthew PVice President, Finance, New Market Funds

Ashli is a committed professional who is a joy to work with. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious. And she is very knowledgeable in people development and personality assessment. She is dedicated to the success of her clients and goes the extra mile to ensure her advice, tools and expertise are having a positive impact on her client’s business.


Ashli was easy to connect with so the coaching process started right away and I felt comfortable jumping into goals and what I was wanting out of our sessions. She helped me celebrate different milestones and helped me see some strengths I would not have otherwise really noticed about myself. I was able to organize my thoughts and articulate what set of factors matter most to me as I look to advance my career.
