“Chris has been instrumental for me in managing the media at several major events including World Championships and Paralympic Winter Games. He manages in a way that minimizes any stress that may come working with the media. He continuously helps me build my brand as an athlete. At any time when I have a question regarding a request for media, or a speaking appearance, Chris has always been there with an answer. I’ve worked with Chris for more than a decade because he deserves a gold medal for what he does!”
“For Christmas 2015, WestJet set out an ambitious goal of performing 12,000 random acts of kindness, while also taking Santa to five major cities across the country in 24 hours. We also had a lofty goal of sharing this unique story with as many people as we could across Canada, and around the world. We engaged Chris and High-Performance Public Relations to help us achieve this. Chris not only made it happen, he performed a mini-media-miracle of his own. From live TV and radio morning shows to print, magazine and online coverage, Chris exceeded our expectations by delivering unprecedented national media coverage in every corner of the country.”
“Rarely do I get to work alongside consummate professionals who are the very top of their game at all times: Chris is one such individual. He is experienced, intuitive, strategic and personable. I have engaged him for his skill with everyone from athletes to managers to CEOs. He knows how to create messages and communicate through stories in a compelling way that delivers results. He uniquely combines this skill with top caliber issue and crisis communications skills. I will gladly work with Chris again and recommend him anytime, anywhere to anyone seeking high-performance communications.”
It’s all in the details when it comes to creating impactful events and promotion. All too often, the details bog down even the most seasoned communications professional, and opportunities are missed. Chris’ experience as a broadcast journalist, and his perfectionist’s attention-to-detail make sure the opportunities to deliver your message don’t get lost in the minutia of details required to deliver a creative, and impactful event and promotion.
