Hello! My name is Linda and I'm the founder of NorthPR.
Throughout my career, I've had the outstanding opportunity to tell the stories of Fortune 500 companies, world-renowned doctors, highly successful Canadian entrepreneurs, passionate non-profits and connected home leaders.
My public relations and marketing communications experience started at global PR agency Hill + Knowlton Strategies, where I learned from some of Canada's most talented PR professionals. At the advent of social media, I worked with Motorola Canada to launch their Twitter and Tumblr presence. Being heads down and actively engaged in this space, I constantly evolved my strategies and shared social media best practices.
With the drive to do more and learn more, I moved to an independently-owned marketing agency, Venture Communications. Learning from leading brand strategists and creatives, we saw through big ideas from conception to execution.
After discovering my true passion for entrepreneurial companies, I moved in-house to an exciting startup at the forefront of the connected home revolution, ecobee - makers of the world's first smart thermostat.
NorthPR is now entering its 5th year helping startups to large corporations tell their stories to the media. Our goal at NorthPR is to always strive for creative and new ideas, embrace new media, challenge the status quo and achieve outstanding results for our clients.
