Communication for Positive Change
Communication, Marketing and Writing | Specializing in helping purpose-driven organizations
Provides services in: ONTARIO, International
Based in: Ottawa area   Location: Ottawa, Ontario Canada

I remember the marketing principles in my college textbooks. The suggestion was to target large segments of the population using mass marketing. Marketing should focus on a product or service's features and benefits.


Times have changed for marketing and communication. And so has my thinking...


Marketing has become a bridge between stakeholders. That bridge sets a course to mutually beneficial relationships. Supporting the bridge should be a solid foundation of communication principles, like:

  • a commitment to communication;
  • a genuine and reliable voice;
  • a focus on quality and consistency;
  • an aim to educate and inform; and
  • an approach that is visually engaging.


While these communication principles are key, the why – or purpose – behind what an organization does is also important. A purpose-driven organization can be successful in environments where markets are highly segmented, niche dominates and soft-sell rules.


As Carolyn Tate says in her book Conscious Marketing (I recommend you read it), "This is all about building something so fundamentally good and compelling right into the heart of your business, products and services that everyone wants to join your tribe and spread the word." That is today's marketing and communication.


As a certified Communication Management Professional (CMP), I draw on my diverse work experience to offer experienced change communication advice and services. I specialize in corporate communication and business development. I often fill the role of translator; putting complex concepts into language a layman can understand. I thrive on executing communication and marketing plans.


I am proficient with the Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator), Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint and Excel), Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Constant Contact and Linkedin.


By staying focused on project details and using my trained eye for proofreading, I consistently deliver projects that are well managed, free of errors, within budget and delivered on time.
