Our Areas Of Focus

Social
Enterprise

Our team brings a dynamic and innovative approach to our work with Social Enterprises. We advertise events by conventional means, such as print media and posters; and by harnessing the power of online technology, such as instagram stories to bring live coverage to your event. Our instinct for choosing locations, vendors and making agendas, means that, with technology old or new, our clients have a memorable experience.

Tech
Public Relations

The success of a new invention depends on an inventor-salesperson relationship. Without the right salesperson even a great invention goes unnoticed. So let us be your salesperson and make sure your work gets the attention it deserves by bringing in the right investors and influencers. We manage your product launches, media coverage, pitch-coaching and more.

Corporate
Public Relations

We help corporations share their stories with others. We write press releases, speeches and newsletters on your behalf with the goal of enhancing your public image. As your representative, we take charge of facilitating meetings with executive personnel and we serve as a bridge connecting communities at the corporate-municipal level.

Government
Public Relations

Now more than ever, government agencies are seeing the benefits of meaningfully engaging with their internal and external audiences. It is a great way for all levels of government to inform citizens about news, upcoming events, and policy changes that affect our communities. 50th Parallel Public Relations can show your organization the best way to fulfill its mission. We can manage your public advisory messages, your social outreach campaigns and your public events. We also offer extensive communications plans and have experience running political campaigns.

Our Clients
Testimonials

“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

“Nazaneen was a phenomenal addition to the Raise-a-Reader team. She brought her expertise in marketing and community engagement to boost the profile of the campaign, raise funds, engage business partners and promote literacy and learning in our community.”

“She is bright, smart, detailed and dedicated and my clients love working with her. She is genuinely personable and easy to work with. I am lucky that I found her and was able to scoop her up to be a part of the Nikita Marketing Communications team. I feel fortuitous to have come across this hidden gem before another organization did!”

Ruby Gill, Principal, Nikita Marketing Communications

“I am pleased to say that Naz provided tremendous customer care to our organization while preparing for, and executing, our event. Naz worked seamlessly with our staff team and we were confident that the contracted portions of our event would be realized through her high level of professionalism, efficiency and attention to detail. At the end of the day Naz delivered exactly what we needed.”

Anita Brassard, Manager of Community Engagement, Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island
