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.

Mike made a presentation to the InterComm Network (the most mature community of practice in the Canadian federal government) on the the use of social media in government internal communications. He has a thorough knowledge of his topic and presents it in a creative and easy-to-follow manner. He is a polished speaker, with an obvious passion for his chosen field. He has a real flair for adding humour and visual interest to his presentations. I would highly recommend Mike as a speaker or workshop leader on the topic of marketing and social media. Thanks, Mike. Well done!!
