Corporate & Internal Communications

01 — Overview

I have experience leading communications campaigns from conception to execution on the business side both externally through corporate communications and internally.

Leveraging research and understanding awareness, attitude and action outcome objectives, I take pride in having led the roll-out of significant partnerships and internal change management shifts over the last 10 years.

I have also been a part of new product roll-out and managing desired perceptions in the B2B space as the organization looked to seek additional partnership growth at scale.

I enjoy being able to work with cross-functional teams in delivering added value to internal and external stakeholders through thoughtful and creative mapping that leads to intended audiences thinking, feeling or doing.
