Berthine bridges gaps! Her passion for people, cultures, and inclusion makes her invaluable to organizations and communities. She recently served as a guest speaker during one of my film industries events to a diverse audience of more than 140 guest. Her expertise in the fields of language and Closed Captioning for film and television proved to be an engaging topic for the attendees. I was later a guest on her Global Fluency Podcast, where we engaged in dialogue on diversity and inclusion in the entertainment industry. So, it’s no surprise, she was featured on my TV show as one of the “Women Who Mean Business.” I highly recommend Berthine as a poised presenter, subject-matter expert, and consummate professional.
Westbridge Solutions took a complex subject like ASD and made it very relatable/understandable. Our trainer also really conveyed the importance of diversity and open-mindedness - and not only just from an interpreter's perspective.

Their presentation provided essential information and tools to help professionals in healthcare, non-profit and government settings be better prepared and equipped to serve communities with various language needs. Berthine’s presentation was one of the highlights of the summit. She demonstrates professionalism, knowledge, and is a true expert in this field."

Berthine presented upon cultural and linguistic competence at a community meeting focused on healthcare and healthcare access for immigrants. Berthine’s warmth, knowledge, and audience engagement were top-notch, and the audience consistently highlighted her as a model presenter and trainer.

I had the pleasure of meeting Berthine when recording an episode of BiB TV. It is hard not to be instantly impressed by her knowledge, passion & mission! The work that Berthine does is more important now, than ever before! If the world had more Berthine's, we would be all the more blessed for it. I highly recommend Berthine for her work and also as a guest/speaker.

Berthine has served as a business mentor for years now, but it wasn't until reading her book, "Global Fluency" that I truly appreciated the well-rounded leader that she truly is! Through her consultations, I have become much more conscientious on how I align my business strategies as well as building real, inclusive relationships with clients and colleagues alike! I recommend Berthine 100%!

I have had the pleasure of utilizing Westbridge Solutions for the past four years. In 2016, Ms. Crèvecoeur West hosted a Cultural Competency Workshop for Gwinnett County Department of Fires and Emergency Services. In her workshop our public safety professionals learned about language and communication for diverse communities. Westbridge Solutions has been a great asset to me personally and professionally and I recommend their services to other government, corporate, and nonprofit organizations.
