He is the author of the ‘Do or Die Communications’ series for Arlene Dickinson’s blog, the ‘C-Suite Communications Toolkit’ blog series and the ‘Build Business Through Strong Relationships’ book series.

Beatles not Stones. Bagel not croissant. Hiking not hammock.
According to Elizabeth, Andrew is that guy who orders too much dim sum.

Communicator, teacher, writer, consultant.
I help you say what you mean and get on with your day.

Elizabeth started out as a journalist but soon learned the hours were better in corporate communications. She has since worked in the insurance, technology, advertising, telecommunications, cannabis and financial services sectors in a variety of senior communications, brand and marketing roles. Prior to the Academy of Business Communications, she was head of brand and communications at ADP Canada. She has a Master’s degree in Professional Communications, with a research focus on executive communication. She writes a syndicated blog, speaks at conferences and is a part-time professor at Centennial College

Over the past 20 years she has worked with companies including Rogers, Shoppers Drug Mart, TELUS, The Beer Store, Constellation Software, Bank of Montreal, and Aon to help them tell their stories and engage their employees and customers in meaningful conversations. When she isn’t doing all of this, Elizabeth is negotiating with her children, refereeing soccer, cooking, or golfing very badly. She secretly wants to be a figure skater.

Brubeck not Bieber. Whiskey not beer. Soccer not football.
According to Andrew, Elizabeth is perpetually curious and genuinely fun despite being right far too often.

Our promise

The journey to authentic, awesome and aligned communications is exhilarating. But it’s scary too. That’s because, regardless of the strategies, tactics or tools, communicating for your organization is personal – and means harnessing a range of difficult emotions. So that your journey is always safe, here is our promise to you:

We focus on what matters to you.

After all, only you know the dynamics unique to your organization.

You are not expected to have all the answers or be perfect.

That’s right it’s okay to be fallible.

We provide you with practical tools and guidance.

That’s because we want you to feel confident and empowered when developing and rolling out your communications.

You will be welcomed into a community of communications professionals.

That’s because we want you to be supported with ongoing learning to ensure your continued success – even well after you’ve completed our workshops.

We will always ‘tell it like it is’.

That’s because to guide you safely we must be honest. And, like all good guides, we only succeed if you arrive at your destination safely.

You will have fun as we learn from one another.

That’s because we are passionate about guiding professionals to develop and roll out authentic, awesome and aligned communications.
