Who we are


We offer hands-on, brains-on communications consulting services to some of Canada’s most consequential businesses and their leaders.

The two of us, Ted Bravakis and Shellie Suter, bring decades of experience in creating communications strategies that punch through the enormous clutter in the marketplace for ideas. Especially at the top management level.

Among our clients are major financial institutions ranging from BMO Financial Group, Great-West Life and Genworth Financial, to biopharmaceutical companies like Seqirus, Janssen and Roche, and other leaders like the Cayman Islands Government and the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.

We are as nimble in our work arrangements as we are in our thinking.

We can supplement your existing team or help fill in the holes in the short-term. We are as at ease in the boardroom as we are in leading an employee workshop or even doing opinion research for your business.

We play well with others.

Even five years ago, ideas like mindfulness and work-life balance were on the outskirts of corporate thinking. Maybe some lip-service, but not much action.

That’s all changed. Research has caught up and proven the benefits of being more mindful. Then the pandemic taught how vital these practices are to us as people, and by extension, as companies.

Shellie Suter is a certified life coach, mindfulness consultant and developer of the mindfulness@workTM training program.

Shellie can help you, no matter what stage of life and work you fit into, break out and make your life and work more meaningful, productive – and sane.
