Who will take care of your project?
" I have been working in the marketing & communication sector with a strong specialization in the travel industry my whole carreer!
I have a Master's degree in Communication & Marketing Management and I also have degrees in Tourism and Languages (Spanish & English). For the past fifteen years, I have worked both on the agency and client side. Those experiences have equipped me with the necessary skills to understand the unique challenges facing clients, and what can be done to address those challenges.
In 2015, a new business opportunity led me to become a freelancer and to launch Saphir Consulting... and what was supposed to be a single project in between 2 jobs turned out to be "a revelation": I truly enjoy taking the time to listen to my clients, uncover their needs, and craft tailored services for them. The size of my company also enables me to be very nimble and to adequately support my clients in high and low seasons. Building a trust-based relationship is paramount to me, and this is something I thrive to do with each of my clients. In other words, I finally apply everything that I love in my job! "
Why this name?
I chose « saphir » (i.e. sapphire in French) because your project is like a sapphire in the rough which requires precise and skilled cutting before becoming the stunning focal point in any jewelry. My mission is to polish your marketing and communication strategy and execution in order to grab the attention of the media and tourism professionals. »
And why a blue gem?
Because that is the color of the sky and... "the sky is the limit" !

Odile Palustran, Director Opal Collection
Vanessa was our PR representative in Paris. We worked together to promote Montreal in France. That year was very important for the city as it was its 375th anniversary. Vanessa did a wonderful job: although she was not familiar with the destination at first, she created a year-long strategy to promote it to French journalists. It was an excellent collaboration. I recommend Vanessa for her determination, commitment and experience!
Geneviève Archambault, Trade & PR Manager at Tourisme Montréal
Vanessa is a very enthusiastic and professional person. She is perfectly aware of how to work with the media and she did a great job for us. I also appreciated her good spirit: she is always in good mood which makes even easier working with her.
