tina barnes

I have spent many years leading strategic initiatives in Toronto working for large organizations, and am now passionate about leveraging that skillset to help organizations grow. I have over 20 years experience in strategic planning, commercialization, product marketing, consumer packaged goods, technology and media,  I love rolling up my sleeves, sharing ideas and knowledge and driving results.  I also have extensive experience in digital and mobile media, applications, and am still well connected within the retail, wireless, digital and media industries in North America. Many clients call me fixer; I have the ability to see through an existing approach and provide strategic direction, then pave the path to opportunities for growth, new revenue streams, market development and commercialization.

I spent several years working internationally and throughout the US/Canada. I am comfortable with executive level discussions and planning, while having an eye for the details in the execution of marketing tactics and digital transformation. Scale Ups and Small businesses leverage her depth and experience as a business leader to coach and mentor businesses from product ideation to market development and sustainability. My clients have included Rogers, Symantec, EastLink, Xplornet, and many small/medium businesses across Canada.
