Despite the many challenges experienced during the past couple of years for most organizations, companies, and communities, I have been reliable and adaptive in serving my clients with effective communications and community relations solutions to succeed during uncertain times.
When the world moved online because gatherings were not considered safe, I helped my clients by using more video communication to share information, tell their stories and stay connected to their communities. When my clients needed to share their stories with the help of the traditional media, I was there to organize socially distant and safe news conferences to help keep people and communities informed.
Through the past couple of years, I have shown resiliency, my ability to adapt quickly and my ability to generate new communications solutions to meet new challenges. And, I have never wavered in my belief that effective communication leads to sustainable and mutually beneficial working relationships.
I have the good fortune to work with several Indigenous communities and non-Indigenous clients. Let me help you generate effective communications and build excellent working relationships as we all navigate the journey along the Road to Reconciliation.

Are your current communications effective and working to support your company or organization’s Strategic Plan? Let’s take a hard look at where you are today and figure out where you need to go in the future.
I have said for years that if you do not have a plan, you will not achieve progress. No plan, no progress. This is true at the Big Picture level and with your communications. What is your story? What are your key messages? What is the best way to tell your story? What else can and should you be doing to get your story and messages out there? Let’s develop a Communications Plan that will answer these questions and allow you to measure the results.
Crisis Communications Planning & Leadership
Planning for day-to-day communications is vital to your company’s and community’s success. Planning to manage a crisis or your worst-nightmare is even more important. I have always said that an organization’s reputation is often measured by its ability to manage a crisis. If you can get through your worst day, imagine how much fun success will be on your best days.
Start with a strategic Crisis Communications Plan. Review and practice the responses on a regular basis throughout the year. Enjoy the confidence that comes knowing that you have considered your worst-nightmares and that your organization is ready to respond. And, if you need someone to provide steady, confident implementation of your Crisis Communications Plan, call me.
There is a new generation of journalists wanting to help inform people and communities and, in the process, help people better understand our uncertain and fast-changing world. I have never forgotten my media roots and how much I always appreciated those who helped me do my job. I now work to develop and maintain good working relationships with media in Northern BC and throughout the province.
Whether you are hosting a meeting or gathering via Zoom or In-Person, it often helps to have an independent third-party Facilitator moderate the session. This is especially true if there is anything controversial on the agenda or program. I have facilitated dozens of sessions in past years and a few that could be described as testy. I am not afraid to respectfully confront anyone looking to dominate meetings or control the agenda. And, if you require an energetic, entertaining Master of Ceremonies for your next conference or gathering and someone who knows how to manage the clock, I am your MC.
There is nothing more satisfying for me as a communications consultant than to help clients build excellent working relationships. Only by working together can we achieve the community and corporate progress that everyone strives for. This is even more important as we merge onto the Road to Reconciliation and enter a new age of relationships with Indigenous communities and nations. BC is in the process of implementing the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (DRIPA) and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ‘Calls to Action’. Is your organization ready to embrace new opportunities, new relationships, and new shared successes?
