I started Communicable to use the power of digital communications to make the world a better place.
Through Communicable, I co-organized fundraising events, like HoHoTO, a tech geek fundraiser, for which I run Communications and PR this year, raising over $275,000 for the Daily Bread, and HaiHaiTO, a fundraiser for Haiti benefiting Red Cross. I helped develop and launch websites for entrepreneurs and small businesses, moderated live chats for The Agenda with Steve Paikin, led workshops on social media strategy for nonprofits, and managed social media, communications, and media relations for local candidates in the municipal elections. I served on the first-ever advisory board of the Canadian Immigrant Magazine and on the GTA board of the Canadian Women in Communications.
I love good conversations, new ideas, digital communications, and coffee.
This year, I am helping to organize Toronto Mini Maker Faire, l a two-day, family-friendly festival where you can MAKE, create, learn, invent, craft, share, think, play and be inspired. Come to experience hands-on workshops, building & hacking, cool science and engineering projects, 3D printing, strange creations, garage technology, arts and creativity. Come to be inspired.
I’m also doing a 50 Coffee Meetings challenge.
I was invited to present at conferences such as MyCharityConnects, PodCamp, Innoversity’s Roadmap 2030, TechSoup Canada’s Net Tuesday, ShesConected Conference 2012: Connecting Brands and Top 200 Influential Women, and others.
I provide strategic advice on digital communications, nonprofits and online fundraising, online brand engagement, stakeholder relations, and integrating digital and social into operations, advertising, PR and outreach.
