I believe that many project teams can do better when it comes to connecting and understanding their outside world. So, I've dedicated my life to helping them look up from their Gantt charts and participate in conversations with those who have a right to be heard. Connect right from the start, I say.




Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.

Pure Project Relations and Consulting


Pure Project Relations and Consulting is an innovative company specializing in producing professionally crafted relationship-building frameworks and strategies for large-scale projects so that Project leaders can "Connect Right from the Start."
We understand that building stakeholder trust is a key component of any business plan, and is most successful when calculated alongside project schedule and budget. When stakes are high, leaving such a fundamental business element to chance is a gamble that frequently leads to delays and cost overruns, as well as a loss in credibility and a damaged reputation.

Sydney Tar Ponds Agency

Communications Manager

The Sydney Tar Ponds and Coke Ovens Remediation project was one of Canada's largest cleanup projects. It was both controversial and complex. The Project was governed by a $400 million agreement signed by both the Province of Nova Scotia and the Government of Canada.
I was contracted to lead, direct and manage communications and stakeholder engagement for the project on behalf of both levels of government and the Sydney Tar Ponds Agency.
