“I have leveraged Stephen’s marketing advisory expertise to help generate new business in new markets during my tenures at NEC, Planar and Microsoft. He is a seasoned professional who is able to quickly gain an understanding of strategic objectives and translate this into marketing strategies and tactics that resonate with internal teams and are well received by clients. His creative thinking and focus on delivering timely, quality results has continually set him apart from the pack.”

Mark Campbell, Broker @ EXP Realty Canada

Stephen has the ability to ask the right questions in drawing out the essence of what an individual or organization strives to be, or perhaps to reawaken what has always been. He has a keen sense for what makes that entity unique and the creative instincts to establish a solid foundation upon which to flourish. He employs a rigorous approach to discovery of what constitutes a “brand”, within its current context, then an intuitive yet structured plan and imagery on which to act. I value Stephen’s perspective, his amiable nature and look forward to opportunities to work together.
