Nicole d’Entremont

Founder, Writer & Editor, Trainer

Nicole has more than two decades of experience in broadcast journalism, education, training and government communications.

She’s something of an expert in all things international, having worked in foreign affairs, studied international relations, and lived in five different countries. To top that off, she’s also fluently bilingual in English and French.

One thing we admire about Nicole is that she’s an ‘information sponge.’ Her knack for spotting and remembering details makes her a brilliant storyteller and a reliable project manager.

Clients love Nicole’s energy, optimism and commitment to excellence. Their trust in her is summed up by a request she often hears: “Do your magic, please!”
