HOT OFF THE PRESS.
As our time in OLIP quickly comes to an end, we would like to reflect on one of our more recent sponsor meetings: Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO) and Brown & Cohen. It must be the end of the OLIP year because it has become tradition that we meet once our academic papers are complete, in order to share our findings.
On April 13, 2019, Brown & Cohen President, Howard Brown was inducted into the Liberal Party of Canada (Ontario) Hall of Fame at their annual convention in Toronto. Howard was one of a select group inducted at the event and accepted his honour with an inspiring speech, that can be read below:
Brown & Cohen may be an independent public and government relations firm, but international connections have helped set it apart from the crowd.
Being the only firm in the country that’s a member of Public Relations Organization International (PROI) Worldwide is quite a feather in the cap of the Toronto-based firm. Brown & Cohen joined PROI in 2010, making it a part of a network of independent integrated communications agencies in more than 50 countries.
“It turned out to be one of the best things we’ve ever done,” said Howard Brown, president of Brown & Cohen. “I think [it] allowed us to overcome a lot of obstacles [in that], when people see you as small- or medium-sized, having that international network is so key.”
