We love our clients and they love us back. Most of Ignition’s business comes from word of mouth referrals. Here’s a few of the companies we’ve helped.

From our first meeting, Ellyn provided tremendous value, rapidly editing our press release for maximal impact, engaging her strong network and moving quickly to drive results. She was phenomenal! The results? Over 20 media mentions, local and national interviews, 400,000+ impressions and a big splash in North America. Ellyn is entrepreneurial, fast-moving and an expert in her field! She knows what resonates and who to connect with. I highly recommend working with her and I know that both myself and the LEO family will continue to engage with her strong expertise.

Miron Derschanskly, Head of LEO Innovation Lab Canada

Ellyn is an extremely talented, personable, and creative public relations professional. The insights, connections, and creative, out-of-the-box ideas she’s provided have proven to be invaluable to my company. She’s helped my start-up come up with several brilliant marketing campaign ideas, gotten us into national publications such as the Globe and Mail, and provides on-going strategic recommendations on solving difficult problems. On a personal level, her passion, humour and outlook on life is contagious. I highly recommend Ellyn to any company looking to break through the noise in an overly crowded marketplace.

Emily Rudow, Oneiric Hockey

Ellyn is an outstanding communicator, brand expert, and entrepreneur. I have known Ellyn for many years and have always found her to be fun, creative, and insightful. She is always at the forefront of current thinking in her field. A client of Ellyn's is assured excellent work on deadline. I highly recommend Ellyn.

Ric Ament, Vital Images Inc.
