Here are some of the brands I have been fortunate enough to work with.
WHAT OTHERS SAY
Over the years I have become self aware of my career goals and what I look for in an opportunity/challenge. I have said it many times and I'll say it again, I fully believe in storytelling! Consumers buy into great stories when not only choosing their favorite brands, but also when choosing their next opportunity. Each company listed below has helped me grow my strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly has offered me a great learning experience. Apart from the learning experiences, I believed in the organization's vision, providing real value add solutions to customers across the globe. The day I stop learning is the day I look for my next challenge.

At the moment audio just simply fascinates me! YouTube has helped place the user in the driver seat. Podcasts enable me to listen to what I want, when I want... It's really a means for me to stay up to date on certain topics while expanding my knowledge base. Don't get me wrong, I like listening to Virgin radio or CJAD, but with podcasts I am able to specifically choose the topics I want to listen to. When you listen to enough podcasts you will also find who you prefer listening to, whether it's Mitch Joel on Six Pixels or Guy Raz on NPRs How I Built This. So it goes without saying, I wanted to create somewhere I can publish all the great talks I have with entrepreneurs. Welcome to the Montreal Marketeers storytelling podcast!
I have had the privilege to work with various types of entrepreneurs. I chose the below two examples, not only because their businesses are nothing alike, but because they were the two brands that also helped me better understand what I wanted out of this experience. For me I always enjoyed discussing opportunities for growth, and if I couldn't get a specific experience from my 9-5, I chose to help an organization that can.
