Testimonials

Anita is great! I worked with Anita for six years in my role as the Chair of the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society’s Communications Committee. Anita was a key part of our success in raising our profile with the media and she helped to establish the CFAS as a great source for quotes and information. Together, we created and ran a responsive, forward-looking communications plan for the organization – not only did we get a lot done, but we had fun along the way!

I was referred to Anita when I wanted to publicize the launch of Yuk Yuk’s Vancouver, our 17th location. Anita acted quickly and strategically and was obviously well-connected. Our media coverage was strong and targeted. I attribute our full houses on opening weekend in part to her hard work!
Mark Breslin, Founder, Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Clubs

Anita was so positive and energetic. She provided the understanding and support that we needed. Thank you Anita for your terrific work!
Jim Reis, Senior Producer, Shaw TV Vancouver

Thanks for all your help, Anita. You did your job superbly.
Reporter, Ottawa Citizen

We achieved outstanding results in Vancouver through Anita’s hard work and contacts … From start to finish Anita was determined to get coverage for our story. At one point I told her she was “a dog with a bone (and I mean that in the nicest possible way).”
Shelley Pringle, Polaris Public Relations Inc, Toronto

We needed someone to work as a seamless extension of our busy team and to hit the ground running. You absolutely got it from day one. At our first meeting I outlined two initiatives with imminent deadlines and right away you had ideas, acted and got us coverage. Your quick response with story ideas, contacts and action continued over the months we worked together.
Stephanie Thatcher, former Communications Manager, Vancity Credit Union

We value Anita’s services as she combines the ability to identify, write and pitch a news story with ease in dealing with the media one-on-one.
John Winter, President and CEO, British Columbia Chamber of Commerce

What you submitted was really good. It was nicely written and exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you.
Barry Link, Editor, The Courier

I’m always happy to work with a consummate professional like Anita, who I know I can rely on to get me what I need for a story, often on a ridiculously short deadline. I always pay attention when I get a pitch from her because I know … she’ll do everything she can to make my job easier and my story better.
Joanne Blain, former Arts and Life reporter, The Vancouver Sun

You tailored a media list to reach our target audiences and advised us on timing and pitching angles. When it came time to make calls to the media you were quick, professional and effective. The resulting coverage was just what we wanted.
Susan Pinton, Director, Marketing and Communications, Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon

[Anita is] singularly adept at the “people skills” required for media liaison work. Her range of contacts in this area is extensive, and I know she is highly regarded in the media community.
Ron Richardson, Director Media and Information Services, Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada

Many thanks. You fall under my ‘good PR people’ file. The ‘not so good’ file is much, much larger!
Wendy Vreeken, Segment Producer, Living Vancouver, CBC Television

Anita’s quiet-yet-firm guidance and her knowledge of how the media works were a huge help. I learned a lot from her about how to craft a message, state it clearly and get coverage.
Chris Bayliss, Executive Director, Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau

You are a ROCK STAR! You did a wonderful job of looking after Vancouver’s Grey Goose vodka mixologists competition. The media judges you selected were ideal and the resulting coverage was amazing – right on target.
