The Centre of Excellence for Public Sector Marketing (CEPSM) is a specialized management consulting firm established in 2005, devoted to helping governments, nonprofits, and associations with the unique challenges they face in their strategic marketing and communications initiatives. 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.

While you’re here, feel free to browse our consulting services, view our training calendar book a speaker, or better yet, contact us directly with a specific question.

Our Mission:

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

Our Mantra:

Strategy before tactics.

Since contracting your services to assist the Western Fair Association we are pleased to report we have been using the knowledge gained and valuation tools on a regular basis. Your assessment gave us the knowledge and confidence in our rates in the Southwestern Ontario marketplace. Additionally, the valuation tools allow us to create new opportunities and value them in a consistent manner with the same confidence so that any sponsorship can be fully justified or explained to potential sponsors. I would recommend your services to other companies/businesses and if the need was there, contract your services again.
