Telling your story for impact and influence

My services focus on storytelling. It’s what I do best. And I can do it in many different ways—through a journalistic article, a speech, website copy, marketing collateral or a communications plan. I can also help you tell your story in an impactful way through the right media messaging, through internal communications strategy, tools and tactics, or through building a thought leadership strategy that will strongly position your organization to the audiences that matter to you.

ABOUT ME

I have been working in corporate communications and public relations for most of my career. In parallel, I have been a journalist, a university lecturer, an independent scholar and an author. My journalistic and creative work has been featured in magazines and journals internationally. My corporate and agency experience includes working in the aerospace, automotive, construction, education, engineering healthcare, real estate and telecom fields.

 

I’ve been teaching in McGill University’s PR and Marketing Communications program for a decade. I have three published books, Motherlode: A Mosaic of Dutch Wartime Experience (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2014), Journeywoman (Inanna, 2017) and Heart of Goodness: The Life of Marguerite Bourgeoys in 30 Poems | Du coeur à l’âme : La vie de Marguerite Bourgeoys en 30 poèmes (Guernica Editions, 2020). This book, for which I translated my own poems into French, was awarded second prize in the Poetry category of the Catholic Media Association’s 2021 Annual Book Awards and was shortlisted in the Specialty Books category of The Word Guild’s 2021 annual Word Awards. A fourth book, Sensorial, is forthcoming from Inanna in 2022.

“Carolyne Van Der Meer brings the full package to the table. More than just a brilliant writer, she offers the intangibles you don't get from other working relationships. She takes the incomprehensible and makes it something you want to absorb. Without Carolyne as my partner, the story of success would not sound the same.”

“Carolyne has been a valuable asset in the creation of our thought leadership articles.  From interviewing subject matter experts, researching support material, to crafting the final story, we are left with a final product we are proud to share amongst our peers.”

“Our arts education organization needed a document to communicate to our staff, teachers, and students who we are and what we stand for. Carolyne offered a set of workshops to ask the right questions, to support our group's co-creation process, and kept us moving towards the concrete goals we set for ourselves. The thing I valued most during our collaboration (so far) was Carolyne's flexibility and openness to our ideas of how the process should go.”
