Highly effective communications enable 47% higher shareholder return.

Situations arise every day that require an immediate strategic communications response, lest it impact shareholder value or employee morale. Yet, many companies say the bare minimum or nothing at all. 

Companies with highly effective communication practices enjoy 47% higher total returns to shareholders compared with firms that are least effective at communicating. (Willis Towers  Watson, 2010)

Companies that report only to meet the regulatory disclosure requirements are missing a prime opportunity to more comprehensively engage new and existing investors about how effectively a business is led and managed. –  (Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation, 2017)

Are you lacking the internal resources to strategically address a communications challenge or opportunity?

Case Studies

Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan

At Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, I served as the lead outside consultant on the company's first three-day global, company-wide, online brainstorming session to refine its mission, vision and values and investment strategy in the context of a changing global environment. This initiative won two major awards in 2015 - IABC's Silver Leaf Award of Excellence and CPRS's Canadian Internal Communications Campaign of the Year. 

The Education Quality and Accountability Office

At the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO), I helped the Agency identify its key stakeholders to engage, and key messages to share, when redefining its role in contributing to the academic success and well-being of Ontario's students. 

Concerned Children's Advertisers'

At Concerned Children's Advertisers' (CCA), I worked with academic experts to gather data on Canadian children's greatest challenges, such as bullying. I also chaired a Creative Committee of SVPs of Marketing from Canada's top child brand manufacturers to create award-winning PSAs and online content for parents, teachers and children.
