Our areas of focus
Over the years we’ve zeroed in on our passions, and made it our mission to work with companies that are making waves in the community development, technology, and impact sectors. We’re fortunate to have done just that.
Infrastructure and community projects often have a tangible impact on the way we experience everyday life. As a team committed to positive change, we’re on board with that. High-stakes community projects require thoughtful communication strategies. We listen carefully to our clients, then make sure everything is in place to turn their big vision into beautiful reality.
Switchboard is delighted to work with some of the most progressive teams in Canada’s technology sector. We’re here to push boundaries, and so are they – so it’s a great fit. Tech leaders know that their products, services and ideas are brilliant – but sometimes need help explaining why they matter. We communicate game-changing ideas in a way that’s accessible and exciting to our clients’ most important target audiences, whether they be investors, clients, the media or the general public.
Creating positive change is what gets us out of bed in the morning, so our social impact projects are some of the closest to our hearts. We love working with non-profit organizations, social enterprises and corporations with a mission to do good. We’re storytellers, and impact organizations have some of the best stories to tell. We make sure those stories are told how, where, when and to whom they need to be.
I am so impressed with Kathleen’s ability to pivot at a moment’s notice and offer up insights and strategies I didn’t even know I needed. They have provided innovative strategic direction, first-class media training, and invaluable event support in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment. The Switchboard team is a secret weapon in our communications tool kit and an ally in our work to grow BC tech.

Very few initiatives are as aspirational and complex as the supercluster. Switchboard led our media and PR effort, allowing our story to translate into something that was both powerful and consumable.

Kathleen worked with us on several special events and online projects. Kathleen infused our work with great ideas, excellent creative design, and super delivery. She is fun to work with and fit into our small team with ease. What more can I say, we are repeat customers!
