Colleen Dane, Director
Colleen is an award-winning journalist with experience in newsrooms big and small. She has covered socially responsible tourism in Africa and been part of Poynter.org sessions on social media storytelling in a news context – both as a result of Jack Webster Foundation Canadian media fellowships granted for her journalism achievements. She holds a Bachelor of Journalism and Communications from Carleton University in Ottawa.
After gaining attention for her skills in the newsroom, Colleen was wooed away to do strategic communications for organizations involved in the contentious aquaculture sector. She loves a tight deadline and a challenging issue which makes her an invaluable resource for government and private-sector ZINC clients.
