“I began working with Nazaneen in January 2015 on the Global Leaders ofTomorrow Mentorship pilot project between the NIC School of Business and the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce. She is wonderful to collaborate with and has proven to be an invaluable resource for me. She is also a committed professional with a passion for her work and the community she lives in.”

“I consider anyone to be able to work with Nazaneen and her team to be very fortunate. Nazaneen has been an integral part of the team building LIFT Startups since 2015- and very important to our success as winner of BC’s “Entrepreneur Promoter Award” (Startup Canada 2018). I can’t say enough about Naz’s professionalism and her strategic insights into how to help us grow. I’d also like to say that Naz was an Honourable Mention at the 2018 Startup Canada Awards (BC region), and I believe that this is only the beginning of the accolades and acknowledgement she will receive as she continues to build 50th Parallel Public Relations.”

Hans Peter Meyer , CEO, LIFT #WeAreYQQ Project
