“Catherine and her team have been a great asset to our organization. We consider her a valuable member of our team. Her assistance and advice was particularly beneficial as I transitioned into the Executive Director position.”Dale CooneyExecutive Director, Alberta Federation of Regulated Health
“Our first-ever virtual fundraising event worked out beautifully. I’ve had so many of our guests reach out to me since the event saying ‘the event was amazing, the platform, the sound were amazing. Thank you so much!’. Going through that process with Catherine at the helm, and of course her colleague Adam, we learned a ton. But we also learned that things can and are able to be done differently. I have a feeling that we’re going to see a lot more of this in the future.”Mary Jane JamesExecutive Director, Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton
“The book launch was the most important undertaking for our company in 2016, so we knew we needed a team that would understand our goals and could deliver results. Catherine and her team far exceeded our expectations. Their insight and hard work helped us land on the best-seller chart.”Doug GriffithsPresident and CEO, 13 Ways Inc.
#ClientLove from SACE
Mary Jane James from the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton shares her thoughts on the Keill team’s support to SACE for their first COVID-era virtual fundraiser, “One Good Reason”. (September 2020).
Health Policy and Patient Access (AB/MB), Novartis Pharmaceuticals, and Chair “Saddle Up” Event Team
Keill and Company have been an invaluable resource to us in various strategic planning, public relations, government relations and advocacy projects. Their creative input and reliable project management skills have improved every project we have worked on together. Keill and Co are very knowledgeable of the Alberta regulatory, legislative and political environment, and have a proven track record for establishing strategic partnerships with all levels of government and community organizations. Catherine and her team are also an absolute pleasure to work with; I highly recommend Keill and Co and will be using their services again in the future.
CEO, Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors
The Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors (ACAC) is currently engaged with Keill & Company Inc. for strategic communications support. Catherine is a gifted communications strategist who has been instrumental in helping the ACAC successfully navigate some challenging situations from a communications perspective. Thanks to her expertise and clear articulation of strategy, the ACAC is well positioned to respond to future situations as well.
Catherine also provided media training to our senior management team, who all went into the training with very limited experience. Thanks to Catherine’s expert advice and coaching, we are all much better prepared and more confident in our ability to effectively engage with the media. I highly recommend Catherine for both strategic communications support as well as media training. It is an investment in your organization that will provide significant returns.
COO, Supply Chain Canada – Alberta
I have worked closely with the Keill team, Catherine and Adam in particular, on a number of public engagement projects that have proven very successful for Supply Chain Canada, even in these difficult pandemic times. We first collaborated on 14 Risk and Resiliency sessions from November 2020 – April 2021 that provided valuable insight into the field of supply chain management. The Keill team implemented our design for sessions around planning, strategy, and VIP management; all of this served to advance our organization’s strategic plan and reputation in our field.
Additionally, we worked together to facilitate Supply Chain Week, a 5-day conference held entirely virtually that engaged hundreds of attendees in several workshop sessions. Adam and Catherine showed great flexibility if plans unexpectedly changed and engaged in diligent preparation work to ensure that as many presenters as possible were familiar with the online event platform. I appreciate that Keill&Co. takes a collaborative approach with clients, ensuring that every step along the way reflects the sometimes-evolving needs of a project so that the end result is one that all team members can be proud of.
Their small but mighty team is always prepared to take on projects which require deep thinking, meaningful engagement, and lasting results. I look forward to continuing working with them in the near future.
Dan St. Pierre
Director Corporate and Stakeholder Relations, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation
I worked closely with Catherine. I had the opportunity to observe her dynamic and organized approach to project management and delivery. She developed a robust project management framework, outlining milestones and deliverables, which allowed our team to review progress at-a-glance.
She developed communications plans and materials to engage with stakeholder groups. Her management of our public engagement sessions was vital in collecting and analysing important data that served as the foundation for our economic development strategy.
She made herself available for weekly project meetings, was thorough in answering questions, and regularly provided insights and recommendations that improved project execution and outcomes. As our organization continues to evolve, we would actively look for opportunities to retain Catherine and work with her again. She is a top-tier consultant who delivers consistently and to the highest standard of quality. I would encourage any organization that has an opportunity to work with Catherine and her team to do so.
