Andrée Paige’s Bio

Andrée Paige, founder and president of The Write Paige Inc., is a corporate communications specialist and professional writer whose career spans more than 25 years working in the private and public sectors, through communications networks and as a business owner.

Career Highlights

Oversaw community outreach initiatives that targeted 12 municipalities, 150 communities, 800,000 citizens, and over 14,000 affected employees during a 14-month amalgamation process.

Developed an internal and external communications program for a client that merged six companies and more than 500 employees and provided support to two of its newly-launched subsidiaries.

Provided full-scale communications, writing and media relations support to a private sector company through a period of unprecedented growth as it tripled in size and revenues, opened four new offices, expanded its services, and emerged as one of the largest private employers in Ottawa.

Performed full-scale communications, media relations, social media, promotional and liaison support for a high-profile annual event that attracted thousands of supporters from seven municipalities while raising funds for military families. This included writing speeches and preparing high-level briefing notes for national and regional VIPs and politicians while serving in a lead role in the Command and Control vehicle. The event was so successful, achieving national exposure, that it risked becoming a full-time volunteer commitment. With businesses to run, co-organizers made the difficult decision to cancel the event and redirect volunteer efforts to smaller events interspersed throughout the year.

Over the years, ghostwrote thousands of newsletters, magazine/newspaper articles, blogs and social media posts. Developed content for and designed hundreds of ads, brochures, posters and displays. Interviewed and profiled hundreds of business leaders. Ghostwrote several business achievement award submissions that won gold.

On an ongoing basis, Andrée manages social media platforms on behalf of multiple clients. She is also frequently approached to revamp or launch websites.

Andrée is sometimes hired by high-profile individuals for private, confidential reasons to address sensitive issues, provide discrete guidance or serve as a personal ghostwriter. Clients who require these services are never named or discussed.

Prior to her career as a consultant, Andrée served as a Page in the House of Commons and went on to work for various Members of Parliament and private sector business leaders. She travelled across Canada and overseas as a backpacker for nearly six years, immersing herself in many different cultures, jobs and experiences. She was also a recipient of the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award: “In recognition of having demonstrated the highest ideals and qualities of citizenship and humanitarian service while in pursuit of excellence in academic, amateur sport, fitness, health and voluntary community service. In so doing has reflected those ideals of courage, humanitarianism, service and compassion, which Terry Fox embodied.”

Andrée’s volunteer experience extends back to her childhood and is ongoing—with her lengthiest commitments involving caretaking and companionship for pets, seniors, veterans, and individuals living with illnesses or disabilities.
