The Trillium Teams adventure started 18 years ago, out of an office located in the second bedroom of Ruth's apartment.
This adventure started in 2004 shortly after Jill and Ruth met while working at Cognos. Within the first few weeks of working together their entire team participated in a team building workshop in Boston, and unbeknownst to them at the time, this was the life changing moment.
Everything about this workshop captivated them, from the new information and insights gained during the session, to the positive shift in team dynamics that followed, as well as the DISC reports. That was the day the idea took hold and they turned to each other and said "we should start something like this in Ottawa!"
That type of statement can be a lot of hot air, but not to Ruth and Jill. What started out as a dream, turned into a reality two months later when they quit their jobs and started Trillium Teams, out of a second bedroom-converted to an office in January 2005.
Today, Trillium Teams is proud to say that Jill and Ruth have delivered their proven programs to 5000+ participants from diverse backgrounds ranging from Fortune 500 companies, private corporations, government departments and non-profits. They have been recognized for their unique way of delivering both the leadership courses and the team building workshops in an interactive, relevant and entertaining manner. Their philosophy is "Dream Big!" And they started in Ottawa, and have expanded over the years - first across Canada, then to the U.S (in cities such as Boston, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco), and finally abroad, to the UK and Singapore... And they're just getting started. The sky is the limit!
