With 20 years working in public relations, marketing and strategy, Tim Conrad has been through the grinder in business, government, non-profit, and advocacy circles. His career as a generalist practitioner has been far-reaching, with many experiences working as an employee, volunteer, and entrepreneur with dozens of organizations. The news and media industries have changed drastically in those years, (see this blog post for a few examples) and Tim has always been ahead of the change as he is a futuristic thinker.

“Tim was an excellent support to me when I held the Chief Operating Officer’s position with Aquatera Utilities Inc. Tim was an integral part of the Aquatera Corporate Team and, when needed, would always provide his excellent input.

I found Tim as an intelligent, knowledgeable and incredibly resourceful individual always willing to provide his assistance when requested.” – Michel Savard, Senior Manager, Opus Stewart Weir, via LinkedIn
