Warren Weeks sold his first newspaper to his grandmother at the age of five, he was Wayne Gretzky’s PR handler for a day in 1998 and over the past two decades, has become one of Canada’s most popular and trusted media trainers. Thousands of spokespeople from a wide range of industries have called upon Warren to learn how to take greater control over their media interviews and to improve their media relations outcomes.

In the summer of 2000, he spent three-and-a-half months in the Town of Walkerton, Ontario during that community’s notorious E. coli water contamination crisis.

He has worked with a long list of satisfied clients throughout Canada and the United States in both the private and public sectors, including banks, insurance companies, utilities, not-for-profits, health care organizations, social advocacy groups, retailers, municipalities, conservation organizations, global consulting firms, information technology companies, grocery retailers, educational institutions, authors and more.
