About

We are your coaches and confidants with unmatched scope and expertise

Our Story

Our experience comes from having once sat on both sides of the table: the political and the private sector. We were once senior staff in ministerial offices or elected officials, have run provincial or national campaigns, designed and overseen complex strategies from start to finish, developed and executed complex government relations programs, or managed successful organizations.

Today, we recognize the synergy between government relations, stakeholder engagement, and research, and the advantages of examining a challenge and building strategy from multiple fronts. We have come together to create a powerhouse of expertise under one roof and commit to a multi-dimensional team at your back when it is your turn to take the stage.
