It is a pleasure for me to write a recommendation letter for Mrs.Lilia Faulkner who had assisted the Embassy of Cuba to Canada during the organixzation of various Cuban Arts Exhibitions for several years.

Mrs.Faulkner has coordinated the wxhibitions, contacted the venues, and arranged all the necessary steps to present a high quality event in coordination with the Embassy's officials and the artists. She does not only prepare the exhibition in advance but also continues working when is finished, representing the artists in different situations.

It is a genuine pleasure to express my appreciation of the services offered Ms. Lilia Faulkner to the international and political communities in Ottawa.

Her labours to bring art and artists together with the diplomatic community are of great value, and provide a special added dimension to our busy lives. The variety, colour, and festive quality of Lilia's exhibits present a welcome and needed break from a typical day's activities. Beyond the cultural aspect, I have admired the skillful use of interesting events to promote worthy causes and highlight the friendly relations between Canada and other nations.

As part of an NGO (non-govemment organization) that is heavily engaged in networking arming ambassadors, high commissioners and members of Parliament, I take pleasure in discovering that some of my diplomat friends and I share similar tastes in art.

I believe it in the best interests of the long-term and short-term residents of Ottawa for the services offered by Lilia to continue and increase.

It is with great enthusiasm that I write a recommendation letter for Mrs- Lilia Faulkner, who worked for the Embassy of the Argentine Republic as an Art Exhibitions Organizer in December 2012. She was in charge of organizing the Art Exhibition entitled ,Argentine Night at St. Brigid's Cultural Center", where we presented different art works of several Argentine artists.

Mrs. Faulkner's skills were crucial in helping our Mission to carry out this event. She took care of assembling and disassembling the vernissage, providing excellent customer service, and promoting the exhibition.

We trusted in Mrs. Faulkner's creativity, energy, and initiative in setting up the display. She assisted the artists with all that they needed, and collaborated with the Embassy staff in organizing a great exhibition. Her talent is irreplaceable, and her unique work assisted us irrpresenting the Vernissage. The exhibit was a great success, attended by a large number of visitors. She proved herself to be committed to excellence. It should be added that she has worked with various Latin American Embassies in Ottawa and she has gained an excellent reputation.

We were delighted with the work of Mrs. Faulkner. If you are looking for a professional person to organize an Art Exhibition , I can think of no better candidate than her.

Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information.

I met Mrs. Lilia Faulkner at the Peruvian Art Exhibition in Gatineau in October 2010 where she was performing the role of the Art Exhibition organizer. Later on, in January of the next year we approached her asking for professional assistance in organizing our photo exhibition of Serbian Churches and Monasteries, Mrs Faulkner was very helpful and assisted the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in providing space and organizing the display; she was also involved with the invitations of guests and setting up the Vemisage. Later on she assisted our Embassy in organizing three more exhibitions at both St. Brigid's CulturalCentre and the national Library and archive. We relied on Mrs Faulkner/s knowledge to put together creative presentation, she provided and outlined the proper artistic approach and in two cases, provided the necessary technical materials. Her creativity, resourcefulness, and ability to see project through to completion on time really made these presentations distinctive and successful. Mrs Faulkner was able to oversee every step of the process from preparation and official opening of the exhibition, to the running and closing of our exhibits. Thanks to her extensive contacts within the diplomatic and social circles in Ottawa, she effectively provided additional attendees who were not on our standard Embassy mailing lists of invitees. She proved herself to be an effective communicator,often serving as Embassy liaison to the administration and staff of the galleries where we had our exhibitions. Attending otherArt exhibitions as an invitee I had the opportunity to see how successfully she coordinated projects involving numerous artists and people. l was impressed with her ability to work collaboratively while guiding the project quickly and effectively.

Sensitivity, diligence, energy and her sense of humour made working with Mrs Faulkner a pleasure. I highly recommend her as an organizer of any Art exhibition which involves the foreign diplomatic missions in Ottawa.
