Before launching Kathy Penner Communications, I was a successful professional in the non-profit sector for 20+ years, working with a number of wonderful groups making a real difference in our community. Most recently, I served with Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) where, over the course of eleven years, I supported a $160M, national fundraising campaign in several senior roles, including Chief Development Officer and Director of Donor Relations.
Prior to working with Friends of the CMHR, I filled various development and communications positions at other community organizations, including Manitoba Theatre for Young People, FortWhyte Alive and the Winnipeg Core Area Initiative.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience through volunteering, and currently serve as a board member and co-chair of the Development Committee with the amazing Winnipeg Folk Festival.
I bring my skills, experience, and passion for communicating to my work.
The ability to identify and understand a variety of audiences – plus the savvy and skills to customize messaging for maximum impact – is a unique and valuable combination.
