“Phil is a true idea man who consistently demonstrates an ability to generate creative solutions. Phil’s a pro at conceptualizing editorial and marketing content and strategies and executing them with precision and excellence. In addition to his professional acumen, Phil is a person of integrity and passion, consistently approaching challenges with a positive attitude and a commitment to making a meaningful impact on the community. I’ve had the privilege of working with Phil Gaudreau and Make It Media Media team on several high profile projects and I happily recommend them.”

“Phil was originally brought on board to support our marketing and communications efforts.

His role grew as a result of his keen desire to help and passion for advocacy, public policy, and improving our community.

During his time working with us, our Chamber has been more visible and proactive on key local policy files, launched new initiatives intended to meet community concerns, and, at a time when many Chambers are shrinking, has implemented innovative approaches to retain and grow our membership base. Phil has played a key role in all of this work.”

-Karen Cross, CEO, Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce

“With a small team and a need to create content for our social channels, website, and to demonstrate impact with our stakeholders, we were thrilled to work with Make it Matter Media. The team is composed of skilled professionals who work hard to get to know the people behind the stories we are trying to tell. They have consistently delivered us stories on time and on budget. We look forward to the stories we will tell together in the future.”

Erin York, Manager of Communications and Marketing, Queen’s University Faculty of Education

“Working with Catherine and Phil is a pleasure. Since 2019 we have used their services to help tell stories about communities across Ontario. Our work often involves complex topics with many moving parts. Catherine and Phil handle this effortlessly. Regardless of the topic or timeline I know once I have handed off the assignment it will be handled professionally and the quality of work I get back will be excellent. All our client feedback has been positive. Looking forward to working on many more projects together.”

Len Montague, Director of Operations, Perspective Marketing Inc.

“Phil is the kind of unique individual that can look at the big picture and be detail-oriented at the same time. Precisely the sort of person you need to help grow your business. Phil took on many challenges during the time we worked together – he started and significantly grew 13 social accounts, creating beautiful, engaging posts every day of the week. He handled complex projects with many stakeholders for my internal clients with great attention and care. And he was available to assist with lots of sudden changes and pivots. Phil’s marketing competencies run the gamut – social media, strategy, event planning, media production, to name a few. I would have been so lost without his guidance and hard work. I know I wasn’t Make It Matter Media’s only client when we worked together, but I felt like I was.”

-Kait Brady, Manager of Marketing, Product & Partnerships, Algonquin College Business Development


“Make it Matter was the perfect fit for a challenging mandate at the Faculty of Law: to coordinate and execute on a complex set of research promotion initiatives on a limited budget. Phil showed tremendous autonomy, creativity and drive in the execution of the mandate, not only meeting every need of the mandate but bringing new ideas and creative energy to the table in ways that added value to the project at every step.”
