It was the best of times. Honestly, the best. As the Olympics arrived in Vancouver, I teamed up with a fellow PR professional to provide services for three clients – Atlantic Canada House, Canada Place and Kinder. For three weeks, we travelled between Granville Island, the Convention Centre and Yaletown. Each location involved daily activations and regular media visits. Vancouver was transformed and with it, so were we.

At Atlantic Canada House, we invited media to shuck oysters, play the spoons, take in some theatre, sing along to The Trews, Hey Rosetta!, Wintersleep + more. We also drank screech.
