Charities Supported by PRES Training Clients

For several years now the PRES Staging Resource Centre has had donations made on its behalf. Years ago when the training school needed training homes to bring the students in to stage and/or redesign client’s homes we used to charge $250. While it does amount to a significant amount of money over the years, PRES decided that a WIN-WIN for a charity and a client would be to have the client make a donation to their favourite charity instead of to the training school.

To date thousands of dollars and/or donations have gone to Children’s Hospital, Make a Wish Foundation, SPCA, Big Brothers, Salvation Army and Breast Cancer to name a few.

BIG THANK YOU FOR GIVING IS WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging. If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy this line of work, or even to do it for yourself and friends, get in touch – Let’s chat!
