My diverse business background has made me understand my strengths and explore my true potential. As a life-long learner, I’m constantly looking to improve myself and strive for excellence in everything I do. My greatest potential for success lies in building on my natural talents which drives me to be more productive, effective, and engaged.

As the owner of  VA Simple Services since 2009, my main objective was to become a strategic resource for the development of my customer’s online presence. I worked closely with businesses to teach, explore and identify ways to integrate social media and online marketing into their business strategies and marketing campaigns.

I have a distinctive combination of business savvy, creativity, technical capabilities, analytical approach, passion for innovation and love for anything digital. It is the combination of those qualities that naturally led me to where I am today. Having the chance to influence and shape how new and existing businesses grow and develop is very exciting and rewarding.

As part of Platinum Solutions, my role is to guide companies in their social journey to help them break down geographical and organizational barriers, open up communication channels and allow easy access of information, and bring people together to collaborate.

What people are saying about us

David Cousineau

Bruce is very detail oriented with a vast knowledge of SAP/APO functionality. He used creative methods to find solutions. His experience in various industries has given him a wide knowledge of different business processes and solutions.

Terry Vermeylen
Senior Technical Consultant and Supply Chain Architect at CGI

I have met with many outstanding consultants in my profession, yet I seldom have come across someone like Bruce who is the platinum standard for SAP and SAP APO Consultants. Bruce executes with excellence and has more knowledge than all the APO consultants I have worked with. He is a pleasure to work with and I have seen him easily unite executives around a vision multiple times. From data mining to project execution Bruce is the very best and I hope to collaborate with him again in the future.

Kathleen Cooke, MBA

I had the pleasure of working with Bruce at Sandoz. Bruce not only is very knowledgeable in APO, he also was a pleasure to work with. His great sense of humour was very much appreciated!

Erika Cocca
Product Manager / Demand Planner

Bruce constantly amazed me with his industry insight and original approaches to solving problems. He thinks on the cutting edge of our domain. Bruce leads by example and many people at ratiopharm find his enthusiasm and dedication both inspiring and motivating. Whenever I had a problem, there has never been a time Bruce has left me without a solution. Bruce worked far beyond the call of duty. Experiencing his quick and sharp mind at work is most impressive.

Bruce is very professional in his work, he will always try to do his best and what is best for the customer. His in depth knowledge of APO and related components (BW & R/3) puts him in a elite class of SCM consultants.

Brenda Robertson
Director of Operations at ATX Networks Corp.

With our current business model quickly evolving due to new products and technologies we at ATX recognized that we required the services of a leading edge consulting service to assist us with the transformation of our production process. A trusted industry leader, that we had collaborated with previously, recommended the services of Heartleaf Consulting. 

Our timelines and resources did not allow for a full blown “Lean Manufacturing“ education experience, we required the immediate services of an industry expert to observe our current processes, understand our future road map and work with our team to make recommendations based on industry best practices. Miranda and her team of experienced, creative and knowledgeable professionals accomplished just that exceeding our original expectations!

Having had such a successful experience with her team during the first phase of the project it only made good business sense to solicit their services for the implementation phase; which in the end was a resounding success. It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend the services of Heartleaf Consulting…the personalized, professional services that were provided by Miranda and her team was invaluable to the success of our project!

Shushy Hitterman
Operations and Sales Supervisor at HK Truck & Trailer

We asked Genevieve to create a website for us in a very short period of time. She was able to coach us the whole way as far as content and suggest creative changes along the way, even for subjects that went beyond the website and into the launch of our new service.
Genevieve coached me all the way as far as getting seen on social networks as well, her knowledge on the subject was a valuable asset and added bonus. Her attention to detail resulted in a beautiful website that exceeded our expectations. Her dedication to working hand in hand with us as growing company was necessary as we were very busy, and her punctuality with the project was a surprise success! She is the only person we will go to for all our web based needs from now on.
