Upcoming PD Session: Nov 14, Shape a culture of storytelling in your organization

The story is out there.

Join us on November 14 to learn more!

Fostering mutual understanding, trust, and support amongst its stakeholders is one of the greatest challenges of an organization today.

Jennifer Pawluk, communications officer, Balmoral Hall

Public relations professionals have a greater stake in reputation management than ever before. Your voice, in amplifying that of everyone around you, matters. We have a variety of tools at our disposal. Our resources are expanding all the time. Developing strategies in community relations is meaningful work.

Storytelling, in particular, is the most effective strategy Jennifer Pawluk has developed in her work as a communications specialist at Balmoral Hall School.

For more than a century, Balmoral Hall has been committed to empowering girls to pursue …their dreams. Rigorous teaching prepares students for post-secondary success. Emphasizing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM), a curriculum spanning classical studies to 21st-century technology fosters academic excellence.

Jennifer believes that if you seek inspiration everywhere, then you will find it anywhere. This is why she leads by training, advising, and guiding stakeholders in their storytelling efforts. She empowers them to tell their stories. In the words of Dale Carnegie: “To be interesting, be interested.” So let’s do it together.

Sarah Tone, Communications Manager

Sarah joined the 2017 Canada Summer Games in 2014, on secondment from her role as Marketing Coordinator at Sport Manitoba. As the communications manager, she collaborated with communications staff and volunteers working in media relations, crisis communications, web and social media, publications, venue development, and special events. A Creative Communications graduate, Sarah has an adoration for sport, entertainment, and the planet, is a dedicated volunteer, and is the event organizer of Between the Pipes: a sponge hockey tournament fundraiser held in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

David Hultin, APR, Communications Coordinator

David joined the 2017 Canada Summer Games via HSC Winnipeg where he brought the rigour of effective, consistent messaging, audience understanding, and reputation management to the hospital’s change projects. Several summers back thanks to a “other duties as assigned’ clause in his contract with the Winnipeg Goldeyes, his alter ego was the Arby’s Oven Mitt as he ran the bases with a pack of kids in hot pursuit! He can be found on the field with a baseball glove or on a sheet of ice with a curling broom when he isn’t chasing his offspring.

Rielle Nault, Web & Social Media Coordinator

Known for being an avid reader, writer, and communicator in both French and English, Rielle’s bottomless curiosity and eagerness to learn drives her communications interests. After discovering the significant power of the digital space, she pursued her studies in Public Relations, Marketing and Strategic Communications at the University of Winnipeg. In July 2016, she was recruited to work for the 2017 Canada Games and just recently finished her 13-month contract as the Web and Social Media Coordinator. You can now find Rielle spending time at the lake planning her next adventure!
