In 2011, the Winnipeg office of the Canadian Mental Health Association was embarking on a capital campaign and was looking for a compelling marketing campaign to support their financial goals.We developed the “Elephant in the Room” campaign. The campaign included superimposing an elephant into everyday social contexts in order to emphasize the need to keep the topic of mental health out in the open, and to remove the stigma and isolation associated with this serious health issue.

Catherine has been great to work with and has been able to anticipate the needs of DIY Chix and keep my company branding on track. Catherine is great at thinking outside the box.
Catherine is an exceptional individual.

Where would we be without you, Catherine?! You make us sound and look great, and you do it with a turn around time that seems almost superhuman. Plus it's just fun to work with somebody so creative and collaborative. Give my name to anyone looking for a recommendation - you couldn't get a higher one from me.
I enjoyed working with Catherine. She was very resourceful and got the job done without a lot of direction, which was very helpful to me as I worked in an extremely fast paced environment. I was always happy with the final product.
Catherine is such an amazing woman. Great attitude and a pleasure to do business with. A natural leader that Gets Things Done! You want Catherine Pate on your team... Period.
Catherine at Stage Left Communications was amazing at helping me set up a brand and website for my company. She took the time to sit down with me and find what my company was all about along with my values. She was very easy to talk to and interactive in finding out what kind of look I was going for keeping within my budget. Her input was very valuable in the whole process. I look forward to working with Catherine and State Left in the future.
I have had the pleasure of working with Catherine on an ongoing Marketing project where she is the Project Manager as well as a volunteer with The Canadian Liver Foundation. She is extremely efficient, very creative and a pleasure to work with. If you're looking for an 'idea person' Catherine is the one for you!
I have to give a huge thanks to Stage Left Communications for taking my company from looking like a 'start up' to looking like a force to be reckoned with. We saved more money and got a better product than I could have dreamed up. The level of service was more than we could have asked for or imagined.
