Teck just asked Canadians to have a better conversation about our future. We should listen.
Argyle marks 40th anniversary with pro bono communications training for 40 charities.
Kim Blanchette brings fast-growing firm 25 years’ experience in communications, engagement, brand & reputation management.
The Argyle Group, one of Canada's largest management-owned communications firms, has been included on the inaugural Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies, with three-year growth of 157 percent.
Context: An Argyle Company was a top recipient at the 2019 International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) conference with two Canadian Core Values Awards – one for Indigenous Engagement and the other for Creativity, Contribution and Innovation.
In the fall of 2006, just a few weeks after Facebook became available to the general public, I invited a friend to speak at our company’s annual retreat. I asked him to tell the Argyle team about his pioneering work in “word-of-mouth marketing” – and to help us read the tea leaves about how communicators should think differently in a world in which audiences were about to become more empowered than ever before.
Communicators in the agricultural sector face a paradox: the way food is grown and produced matters more than ever, and yet the urbanization of Canada means consumers are increasingly disconnected from the farm.
When I founded Context Research in the mid-1990s, ‘public engagement’ was rarely considered an independent practice. Engagement often consisted of town hall meetings or open houses, led by planners, engineers and company officials.
It’s a paradox of the digital age that even as technology makes communication easier, it seems to make relationships harder. Truth and trust – the twin enablers of a healthy relationship between an organization and its stakeholders – are often elusive. To succeed, organizations need new mindsets – and communicators need new skillsets.
