“It’s my pleasure to serve as a reference for Romina. We worked together at Canadian Art.
At that time, our company was at the beginning of a growth spurt, but we were struggling with our ‘corporate voice’ if you will. Our business was multi-platform and our efforts were fragmented. Romina saw this as an opportunity. She created our corporate presentation with a separate presentation for advertising sales. I currently use the sales presentation to advertising agencies across the country. It combines strong images, compelling stats and a toe-tapping intro video. It has been a wonderful calling card for me, and it has translated into new business.
In addition, Romina refreshed the media kits for both print and online advertising.
She strengthened Canadian Art’s social media platforms to the point that we have surpassed our biggest competitor with Twitter fans.
Without question, people want to work with Romina. She is eternally calm, loyal, kind to her staff but always with a ‘no nonsense let’s get this done’ approach. She has a knack for identifying a good employee and effectively matches strengths to the task. People succeed with Romina’s management.
I am very grateful for the time Romina spent with Canadian Art.”
Amy Corner – Advertising Director, Canadian Art Magazine
“I can say without a doubt that Romina was one of the best colleagues I’ve worked with. Romina oversaw both the day-to-day internal operations at Concrete as well as the client management of many senior clients. She was highly adept at both. She was a pleasure to work with, and I was quickly impressed by Romina’s wonderful combination of intelligence and attention to detail with warmth and humanity.”
Jason Oke – Regional Managing Director, Asia, Young & Rubicam and Red Fuse Communications
“Romina is a creative business development professional. In the early stage of the development of winefox.ca, she researched and identified potential partners in a number of categories, and played an important role in helping us secure a key partnership.”

“Film North has got to be the sweetest, most professionally run, well organized, creatively programmed film festivals ever. Everyone was so generous, courteous, kind and genuinely having fun that it was infectious. Thanks to the entire team for making it an event that will be forever memorable to all that attended.”
Dale Hildebrand – Director of the award winning documentary TO in 24
“Romina leads Get Lit with a wonderful balance of entrepreneurial vision, polished headship and straight-up moxie. She is lovely to work with, smart and thinks of everything. I’m thrilled to see how she has grown Get Lit into the flagship event in the literary community that it is.”

“Beyond her experience and knowledge, Romina has that intrinsic understanding of marketing communications, service, and diplomacy that cannot be taught. She is a unique, personable, and wonderful talent.”
Carleen Bilger – Director of Client Services, Concrete
“Romina is one of those people who are so extremely efficient, so tremendously well-organized and so incredibly ambitious that it would be easy to hate her if she wasn’t so darn charming, gracious and considerate too. Romina was born to be successful. Hire Romina, and you’ll find that her success story can be part of yours too.
Gary du Toit – Creative Director, David & Goliath
“In my view Romina is one of those rare individuals that understands both business and good creative. She clearly understands how advertising and design can change a business. Her personality allows her to build relationships with clients while still pushing for good work. I also found that her outside interests in film and literature made her a more well rounded member of the team at TAXI.”
Dave Watson – Creative Director, TAXI
“Romina was an outstanding Account Executive with Yield. Entrusted with some of our most challenging accounts, Romina was able to foster close relationships while getting the business results we needed. Calm under pressure Romina was a key player on the advertising team for the Conservative Party’s successful run in the 2007 election. In new business presentations Romina was a real star conveying a keen intellect, confidence and warmth which resulted in many successful pitches.”
Ted Nation – President & Partner, Yield
