I am writing in response to the opening: Communications Advisor, External Communications, Enbridge
Thank you for taking a moment to review my CV. I know I fit the criteria Enbridge is seeking. I am eager to share my knowledge, experience and abilities with you. I understand the oil and gas industry well in Canada. In Saskatchewan, this is of highest importance, not only for the ruling government, but for the residents who live here. For example, when my news room recently reported sales for oil and gas drilling rights hit low fiscal year-to-date revenues, I went to my resources in order to explain this situation to our audience. I am well connected in this industry and am able to quickly locate contacts.
I offer you over 20-years of experience managing communication teams for top-tier organizations in Canada, such as Harvard Broadcasting, Astral Media, Rogers Television, CBC Newsworld and Standard Radio.
I am adept at communications. My various roles within Canada's broadcast industry not only included delivering and writing news. As the media climate changed, so did I - ensuring my online skills are powerful and undertaking every opportunity to expand my social media skills.
My project-management skills are also strong. I have vision and a great eye for detail. I possess each tool you require: from journalism-writing techniques, PR & engagement, social media, internal government relations and much more. I work well under pressure and my years of news radio have equipped me with the tools to address the media as well as the public. I consistently upgrade my skills and can write, edit, communicate, speak, photograph and finish. I know how to do work required in niche markets and face every challenge which comes my way.
My ability to communicate within an organization is one of my strongest features. I am a team-player and always focussed on building my organization's brand.
I know how to manage many streams of information and absorb or file the information for future use. My creativity provides a different approach publications and my organizational skills ensure projects are done well.
As the current News Director at 620 CKRM in Regina, it is my responsibility to not only present news, but to best-represent residents living in this province. I try to anticipate, prevent and resolve issues. My practice is to always envision the final goal. Then, take every step to achieve that outcome. It is a technique which I have used nearly all of my career: staying one step ahead.
I am organized, efficient and committed. I continually stay abreast of Canadian issues whether through research, tracking or simply following a social stream. I arm myself with the latest technology and am trained in the most-recent industry platforms.
I work with clarity and keep an eye on the final product. I thrive on deadlines and stay until a job is done.
