I spent 21 years as a TV and print journalist, the last 13 as an anchor, reporter and producer at CTV British Columbia. I understand the issues people care about, the factors that sway opinions, and how stories can shape outcomes. Let’s work together to share your vision, core values and message with clients, stakeholders and the community. Let me tell your story.

Renu is a true professional when it comes to communications services -- from research to media management. She's easy to work with, knows how to make things simple, and she's constantly looking for ways to add true strategic value, which in the loose world of consultants, is truly extraordinary.

Renu is professional and efficient. She was able to quickly put together a creative story angle that, along with her connections, helped me get appearances on two TV newcasts. As a Certified Financial Planner, working with Renu helped enhance my marketability by getting me on the most watched consumer segment in BC, "Olsen on Your Side".
