MEDIA RELATIONS TRAINING
Media training for leaders and communications teams who need to confidently convey their social impact story to the media and on stage.
Kathryn's media training was focused, practical and highly engaging. It is the perfect introduction for subject experts who may be anxious about interacting with media. The training demystified the process and created a framework to make it easier to prepare for interviews and stay on topic. It was a great way to build understanding and confidence!
– Anne-Marie McElrone, Director of Partnership Development at The North Grove

Services we Offer
You want to make a difference, and we want to help.
Our services help our clients build their brands, fulfill their missions, and increase their impact. To accomplish this, we offer communications strategy and training services to our clients.
It’s time to invest in building a strong, strategic foundation for your organization, and working with us will get that done.
We start by building a Communications Plan to build a strong, strategic foundation for your organization’s communications.
Our Communications Plans are our signature service because they deliver the biggest impact on improving our client’s communications. Our Communications Plans bring our clients from Point A (where they start) to Point B (their dream brand that propels their social impact success).
With our years of experience, we deliver campaigns focussed on advancing progressive public policy and securing government funding. Our services help further progressive causes within society, government, and the media.
Communications Training and Coaching:
We offer workshops and one-on-one coaching on social impact communications. We focus on speaking at events and training communications teams and managers.
Our media training sessions are geared towards spokespeople and communications practioners. With our years of experience working with media, we’ll help you tell your story in a compelling way.
Our “done for you” approach to annual reports will showcase your organization’s impact and bring your storytelling to life. Annual Reports are a key touchpoint for your communications strategy. Our approach will celebrate your community and hook funders that want to help propel your organization’s success.
If your nonprofit needs a rebrand, we’ll tell you — and we’ll help you get it done.
Our Visual Brand Guides service was created as an add-on to our signature Communications Plan service. Adding a Brand Guide onto your Communications Plan will overhaul all of your communications at once.
To build cutting-edge Brand Guides, Our Brand Director, Shannon Hawn, leads the design process and our Principal Consultant, Kathryn LeBlanc, leads the strategy.
We have been so incredibly lucky and grateful to have Kathryn deliver a training to our small (but mighty) team at Capital Rainbow Refuge! She took the time to understand the unique context of our work and help us adapt our existing comms materials and strategy to be practical for our team to implement. She supported us to refine key messages that authentically speak to who we are and took the time to walk us through developing and implementing our plan. She is a delight to work with and is incredibly down-to-earth and real — which feels like a tough thing to find in the comms and marketing spinning world.Sophia Lowe, Executive Director
