A graduate of the University of Toronto, Canada, with a focus in English and Sociology, Abigail Brown brings close to 20 years of experience and expertise in communications strategy, media and public relations, crisis communications, stakeholder communications, and CEO and executive thought-leadership.
Abigail has worked for and led teams with a diverse mix of brands and organizations – including a leading global NGO and humanitarian agency, one of Canada’s largest national banks, a global publishing house, and a number of health, human rights, and youth-focused charitable organizations.
Abigail is a writer and creative thinker who has been successful at driving positive brand profiles for organizations through compelling narratives and integrated campaigns. One of her proudest career accomplishments, while working with a global NGO, was leading a communications campaign to highlight the impact of Canadian-funded maternal and child health projects overseas. This campaign also made a case for additional funding and coincided with the global summit on Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) hosted by the Canadian government in May 2014. At the summit’s conclusion, the Canadian government announced an additional investment of $400 million for MNCH initiatives.
Abigail loves giving back to the community and has been involved with several community organizations and initiatives, particularly those engaged in protecting the safety and rights of women, children, and marginalized communities.
She is also delighted to be a volunteer and mentor with the Victoria College Alumni Association at the University of Toronto.
