Some people are keen to meet celebrities. I enjoy meeting politicians, and regardless of their political party. I appreciate the people who commit to spending their time serving an often angry and critical public. In my role as executive director, I have had dinner with our Member of Parliament Wayne Stetski, I have met Christy Clark, twice. I have been in meetings where Bill Bennett has spoken about his early days of running a fishing lodge. And, every two weeks I attend our City Council meetings, and get a chance to chat with our Mayor and City Councilors.

In order to give you a real life example of how communications and public relations can help your business, we asked Fernie Brewing Company some questions. As the favourite brew of the Elk Valley and beyond, Fernie Brewing is obviously doing something right. Keep reading to see how they mingle with their people.
