“I have known Colleen since April, 2020 when I met her through her work on the Tranquille Road Sanitary Main Upgrade project. Throughout the project the residents of our strata, Kirman Mews, next to Save on Foods had many issues and concerns surrounding the project and the potential impact to our strata. Colleen was hands on every step of the way addressing every issue. She contacted every resident either by phone, email, mailbox notice and/or texts. She is extremely proactive and gave us ample notice with the pertinent details of what was upcoming from week to week. She communicated every concern to the people in charge and never left any issues unaddressed. She is a great representative for the City of Kamloops and she always communicates with everyone in a respectful, attentive and friendly manner.”
“I’ve known Colleen for many years and was able to work with her on a professional level on some key projects. Colleen has earned her reputation as a consummate professional and excellent consensus builder. We knew a project would be professionally managed, team oriented and results driven when we knew she was attached to it.
Specifically, her work with us on the 2015 Overlanders Bridge Rehabilitation project changed the entire dynamic of interaction. She was able to bring all of the key stakeholders together, keep them holding hands and working together, and greatly minimized public discontent and business losses. She and her team were so engaged and thoughtful on this project that the owner of one of our most affected businesses went to a Kamloops City Council meeting, asked to speak to Council, and spent 10 minutes applauding the communications and engagement work being done during the disruption. That had never happened before during a major arterial shut down.
If you want successful, sincere, and results oriented public engagement; Colleen is the person for you.”
