Robyn Quinn, APR, MA

Although I grew up on the East Coast, I'm now officially a proud West Coaster, calling Victoria home since 1994. My history with CPRS goes back to when I signed up as a newbie to the profession in 1989. I received my accreditation and served on the National Conference team in 1992. In 1999, I won PR Professional of the Year, and became CPRS Vancouver Island Chapter Co-President in 2000. I served on the CPRS National Board as National President in 2004 and 2005. Being a bi-coastal member has its advantages, I've spoken about communication best practices to CPRS chapters across Canada.

Whether I was managing public consultations for the federal government or creating excitement about a new season for performing arts, the common thread has always been the excitement and challenge of creating meaningful connections. I am currently communications manager for a unique family of companies based in Victoria. Our businesses range from software development and corporate management services to an entertainment management firm based in Los Angeles. I also believe in life-long learning—recently earning my MA in Professional Communications from Royal Roads University. I love the way communications, as a profession, has adapted to the rapidly evolving disruptive technologies and growing demands for transparency. Today, being a public relations professional means being a problem solver and visionary.
