The history behind Kamaleidos change solutions
Kamaleidos is a hybrid term that combines the magniﬁcence of a chameleon with the visual magic produced by a kaleidoscope.Chameleons are extraordinary animals.
Their name means “lions of the ground.” Chameleons’ eyes are independently mobile, but in aiming at their prey, they focus forward in coordination, aﬀording the animal stereoscopic vision.
A kaleidoscope is a very creative tool with an ancient history that conﬁgures vision into multiple features and colors; it’s capable of forming mosaics in beautiful tones and geometric shapes.
These two concepts behind our brand highlight the critical element of VISION.Seeing the same matter through many “ﬁlters” while analyzing and understanding a problem through diﬀerent perspectives helps us deal with obstacles using trained and sharp vision.
In organizations and in projects, once the core issue is identiﬁed, our ability to draw a compelling vision for change is fundamental for gaining the support around us and mobilizing everyone’s eﬀorts towards that vision. Under this premise we deﬁne the Kamaleidos motto: Envision. Change. Succeed.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS & PARTNERS SAY
Professional, personable and resilient are the three words that come to mind when I think of Ernesto. Ernesto was retained to deliver the full integration of the HRIS and Payroll system. there were many candidates up to the task. However, we knew that the more significant challenge would be around change management, training of the staff that were exhibiting change fatigue, and meeting the pressing timelines. Ernesto quickly proved himself: established key relationships, tailored his communications to various stakeholders, ensured the continuous stream of updates, and showcased his SME in the system by producing highly effective distilled training guides for all of the affected groups. Suffice to say, no project is without a hiccup, what was important is that Ernesto remained professional and tirelessly engages with the parts of the organization that requires more help.
Ernesto is an accomplished training and development professional. He is adept at facilitating classroom sessions as well as the development of online training programs. I would highly recommend Ernesto for any Training and Development position.
Ernesto is a "go to" guy. A team player that one can count on to deliver what is expected. A continuous learner, he has an excellent knowledge of his field and shares his expertise with those he works with. He is detailed and thorough. When Ernesto researches a subject, he leaves no stone unturned. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a true professional.
I was Ernesto's advisor for his master’s research project (Queen’s University) in which he demonstrated a remarkably high level of initiative, organizational ability and creativity. He researched the literature, made contacts, arranged for and conducted interviews, gathered secondary sources, performed an in-depth analysis and completed the research report. His written work was good and his analysis excellent.
In short, he is a talented, intelligent and personable individual who would make a positive contribution to any organization that employed him.
Ernesto delivers: His affable style and commitment to service, uniquely combined with insightful analysis, detailed project planning, and understanding of people make him a great choice. He is able to quickly evaluate learning needs and develop knowledgeable solutions. We entrusted him with change management training because of his professional service with a challenging HRIS implementation project, and would do it again.
During my time as Learning & Development Manager at Loblaw Companies Ltd. I was pleased to work with Ernesto Solari, where we partnered on numerous projects from 2016 to 2018. Ernesto always tackled new projects with curiosity and a positive attitude. It was exciting to see the learning solutions he was able to develop. Aside from my personal appreciation for Ernesto’s contributions, the Learning & Development team also valued his work effort and always looked forward to working with him. Our stakeholders and Subject Matter Experts especially appreciated his flexibility to accommodate their schedules and find resourceful ways to gather content for the learning outcome. Ernesto’s bi-lingual learning solutions always met the company’s standards and objectives. I especially appreciated his ability to create effective microlearning and video demonstrations, which satisfied our need for engaging and sustainable online learning. I would be thrilled to work with him again in the future.
