We are based in Ottawa, Canada; however, our work stretches across five continents and hundreds of organizations. Our core functions are consulting, training and speaking. We are also the past producers of Canada’s MARCOM Annual Conference as well as the creators of the Professional Certificate in Public Sector and Non-Profit Marketing in partnership with the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University.

Our Mission:

To advance the disciplines of strategic marketing and communications in the nonprofit and public sectors.

Our Mantra:

Strategy before tactics.

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that the session with Mike, Strategic Social Media Engagement for Government Organizations, was simply outstanding. While I have mentioned it to him, I wanted to let you know that he has given much for me and the CPC to consider moving forward. There is a lot we need to do, however, I feel we are much better positioned having had this session with Mike and having benefitted from his guidance. I thank him immensely for his understanding, passion and … just knowledge!
