“Thank you very much for the very helpful training session. That was a very informative day, with good information on the realities of the news world and excellent tips on what they are looking for and how we can get traction.
The camera sessions were excellent. While it is painful to watch yourself on video, it was extremely beneficial.”
-Dick Bakker, President, Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative
“The media training session you offered was extremely helpful. We get a lot of media requests as an organization and I can certainly say that the board now feels more comfortable fielding questions from the media thanks to your presentation. I hope we can work with you again in the future.”
– Henry Annan, President, Canadian Federation of Medical Students
“We were thrilled to connect with Kimothy, Eric and the entire team at Ottawa Media Group. As a brand new organization looking to launch in Ottawa, their support, advice and connections were a massive help to establishing Mealshare in the community. Beyond all that, they were fantastic to work with and definitely share our mentality that work should be fun and enjoyable!”
– Jeremy Bryant, Mealshare Co-Founder

“Eric and Kimothy are a power duo. Together they took our grassroots charity to another level, using their unique media strategy and extensive contacts to put us front and centre in Ottawa.”
“Eric has provided media training to FCM Presidents for the past several years. I have witnessed Eric providing concrete, objective feedback to FCM elected leaders. As CEO, I have also received media training as well as on-the-spot feedback related to specific interviews on radio and television.
As a trainer, Eric provides clear, concrete and practical instruction based on real experiences. His feedback is professional, direct and constructive.
As a result of his training I have seen an improvement in media performance amongst others he has trained. For myself, I feel more confident and focused during interviews and feel my performance has improved noticeably due to his training and feedback.”
– Brock Carlton, CEO of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM)
“Organizing special events and getting media attention……isn’t easy. You need to be organized, smart and connected. Fortunately, Kimothy and Eric from Ottawa Media Group (OMG) have all three qualities.
Recently, the Ottawa Community Housing Foundation engaged OMG to help manage a special event. The outcome was a “home-run”. We had a great turn out….both with invited guests and with the media. Working with Kimothy and Eric made the job easy. They’re well connected to the community and demonstrate great professionalism. We look forward to working with them again.”
– Howard Whittaker, Executive Director, OCHF
“OMG was the key ingredient to our product launch. They engineered just the right sequence of events to get our product in the right spot.”
