What they’ve said about us:

“For 2 years, Georgina was contracted to provide marketing and fundraising services to our organization.  She was able to envision and implement two new annual events to raise our profile which made a dramatic change in the levels of recognition throughout the City of Richmond.  This resulted in surpassing our original marketing and fundraising goals, and countless other benefits to support the community with mental health challenges.”

Dave MacDonald, Executive Director, Pathways Clubhouse

“Touchstone Family Association contracted Georgina Patko as communications and fund development director.  She brought enthusiasm and energy to her work. Touchstone truly benefited from her commitment to the projects that she managed. As a result, Georgina was able to provide us with a profile and credibility within the community at large and promoted the mission of the organization to support families and children.”

Michael McCoy, Executive Director, Touchstone Family Association

“Her positive and powerful community vision, coupled with her natural networking skills led our organization to greater success.”

Trish Gorton, Caring about Kids

“Georgina is respected and admired for her leadership qualities and enthusiasm. Her commitment in turn encourages others, resulting in vital organizations.”

Chris Evans, Richmond Community Foundation

“Georgina will always, doggedly if necessary, find the way to overcome obstacles and make an initiative she believes in, happen.”

Chris Kelly, Superintendent, Vancouver School Board

“Her approach was exceptional in building what has become a respectful relationship between Junior Achievement and McDonald’s Restaurants. She demonstrates the value of partnerships and the all important win/win philosophy that has made a difference in the level of support she has solicited from McDonald’s.”

Lauren Kano McGregor, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada

“Georgina is extremely adept at securing resources. She has an ability to motivate people to become involved in their communities. Georgina’s vision and passion to build community has left a lasting legacy here at Station Stretch.”

Noli Cole, Station Stretch Alternative Program

“Her vision, energy, drive and ‘can do’ attitude inspires us all to be involved, stay involved and, in fact, encourages us to get others involved as well.”

Val Caskey, past Business Development Officer, City of Surrey

“I am always impressed with Georgina’s capacity to pick up an idea and run with it. As a leader, Georgina is a visionary who knows how to implement; a leader who walks the talk; and a person who has community support as her driving vision.”

Jennifer P Leary, Regional Manager, Junior Achievement of B.C.

“Georgina organized a disparate (and disorganized!) group of actors into a focused and successful marketing team. She helped us come up with the idea of ‘live advertising’ and for 6 months – under her direction – we ran an office out of our backroom working shifts to cold call advertising agencies. The outcome was their nice closing cheques!”

Peta Masters, Writer/Producer, Wyre’s Cross (for Mrs. Worthington’s Daughters, London, UK)

“Georgina came to us as a referral and was able to take our mix of diverse cultures and diverse personalities and achieve our purposes and goals. Visioning with Georgina was fun and more insightful for us.”

Nancy Chivario, Executive Director, Multifaith Action Society
