Kerry Harris

After leaving her role as President of the Canadian business unit of global PR agency Weber Shandwick in 2010, Kerry formed brand strategy firm Reboot Consulting.

After spending the majority of her over two decades long marketing communications career either building her own international communications management firm or working with major agencies and brands, she decided to take her extensive channel neutral marketing experience working with government, big brands, not for profits and other private sector clients and marry it with her brand strategy experience to form a unique consulting group.

Kerry has worked internationally with The Governments of The Bahamas, South Africa, Cayman Islands, Barbados, Turks and Caicos, Ontario and Canada in a variety of sectors including CSR, tourism, international business, economic development and trade, education and health and long term care.

On the private sector front, she has worked with professional services firms, banks and other financial services firms, CPG companies, QSR and a number of hospitality companies.

Her not for profit experience includes work with The Special Olympics (World Winter Games), The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Foster Parents Plan, World Vision, Jewish General Hospital (Montreal), The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery and many others. Her ability to develop and manage powerful CSR programs for clients has resulted in a number of award winning programs and campaigns.

She has extensive experience in developing and implementing traditional marketing strategies and plans with digital, interactive, social media and mobile delivery channels and is a contributing blogger for The Huffington Post Canada.

As a brand strategy consultant, she works with owner/entrepreneurs, government, large private sector clients and a number of start-up’s just to keep it real. She has recently finished her first book and has started on her second.

Kerry speaks frequently on CSR, brand strategy, reputation management and demographics in the digital age and was a visiting professor for five years at Ryerson University in the Department of Radio and Television Arts. She is also one of just 200 Canadians personally trained by Al Gore to present “An Inconvenient Truth”.
