Paula Attfield

Paula Attfield

CEO

It’s my passion to see what’s on the horizon for the non-profit sector, both here in Canada and abroad: namely, the innovative thinking that is at the intersection of brand, marketing and fundraising. That’s what will be key to our clients’ success.

Bryan Tenenhouse

Bryan Tenenhouse

EVP and Chief Creative Officer

I spent 25 years in the commercial sector working my way up from copywriter to VP, Chief Creative Officer, selling everything from Apple products to Amex Cards, but nothing makes me happier than using what I've learned to help our clients raise more money and build their brand.

VP, Fundraising Strategy

It’s a privilege to help our clients raise more money for their organizations with the right mix of strategy, donor insights, data, and creative. It’s an exciting challenge to figure out where the donors are, and then engage them there — giving them the opportunity to respond where they see fit. That’s integrated thinking and it’s how we’re helping our clients win.

Advisor, Digital Transformation

It's an exciting time in digital. Forward thinking and a strategic approach can help you build brand awareness, strengthen relationships with your supporters & donors, and raise more money. So, it’s vital, now more than ever, for non-profits to be innovative and try new things online. Think small and think big! Digital doesn't always have to be complicated to get results.

Tonie Granata

Tonie Granata

Advisor, Digital Transformation

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that non-profits need to be more integrated than ever – they need to be where donors are. Donors are online in larger numbers and more comfortable donating from that channel than ever before. Of course, as the sector changes, we need to be mindful that donors are not a monolith, so we need to be smart and strategic about how and where we’re interacting with them – to help them feel connected emotionally to the cause so they want to keep giving. An insightful, integrated strategy is just the beginning.

Lisette Gelinas

Lisette Gelinas

Advisor, Brand Strategy

Connecting with donors on an emotional level is key to effective fundraising. A charity’s brand is their best, but often under-leveraged, asset to drive donors at all stages of their lifecycle.

Candice Gregoris

Candice Gregoris

Account Director

The first step to achieving a mutual goal is empathy. You need to truly understand people’s strengths and the obstacles they’re up against before you can build a plan to accomplish a goal. It’s absolutely the best way to map out success.

At heart, I’ve always been a storyteller. Being able to use that skill to make an emotional connection with donors and raise money for important causes is immensely rewarding.
