About William

William brings experience as a government relations consultant in outreach and advocacy from all three levels of government and the cannabis information sector, as well as significant professional and volunteer experience for a various of non-profit and environmental organizations. 

As a government relations consultant, William has always specialized in designing and implementing targeted engagement strategies, identifying strategic alignments between government priorities and client offerings to focus on the most efficient and cost-effective ways of spreading a message to communities of interest. A dedicated campaigner, he is equally comfortable outlining a client’s key offerings to senior political or bureaucratic staff and taking the mood and feeling of a voter on the doorstep. These experiences have given William a strong skill set in research, communications, and client services, and how to best apply them to your day-to-day needs, be it data mining, crafting key messaging, or management of outreach campaigns. His work both in-house and on behalf of clients has resulted in successfully achieving regulatory change and moving the political needle on issues of critical concern.

William holds an Honours Bachelor degree of Public Affairs and Policy Management (BPAPM) with a Minor in History from Carleton University. If you’re looking for experience and expertise from a government relations consultant, feel free to reach out to William to see how he can help you.
