Team and Careers
Team and Careers
Orkestra: somewhere between a family, a cult and simply an incredible work team. Here, you take out the trash despite 20 years of experience and you have your say on projects even if you arrived yesterday. Taking ourselves too seriously, we leave that to others who take themselves for others. Interested?
President of the Republic
Colin has been president of one thing or another since he was 11. From his lemonade stand to his teams of technicians to his side of the table at Christmas parties, he likes being president. Period. That drive is probably what gave him the confidence to build a small team (of which he’s president) and quintuple his sales in just two years.
General of All Kinds of Stuff
Alex is a master of straight talk. In fact, if you don’t like hearing the truth, you may not take to Alex. On the other hand, that’s probably the quality that explains why, every year, dozens of companies rely on him to develop their campaigns and plan their events. It’s easy to see Alex has a good head on his shoulders—it positively gleams!
Emperor of Concepts
Unconventional in every respect, Dominic still hasn’t quite grasped the limits of our society. He likes to explore them by deliberately (or accidentally) causing public discomfort that forces people to adopt a new point of view. Unlike some, he can tell the difference between efficiency and bullshit. That’s all it took to persuade us to put him at the head of our creative army.
Queen of Production
When Frédérique takes on a project, the first step is to ensure that everyone is up to the standard of her organizational skills and sense of priorities. She’s the kind of woman who, in just a couple of weeks, will know more about you than you do yourself. She manages our video production, and from near or far, pretty much anything that can be managed. And for that we are deeply grateful.
Grand Creative Magus
Hold onto your hat: Sacha belongs to that rare class of young professionals who know what they’re talking about. Up to date on just about everything, he finds time to devour a book a day to get a solid grounding in the concepts he presents to agency clients. Unlike some who are content with creating beautiful things, Sacha creates beautiful things that are also precise, strategic and functional. Your mission when it comes to Sacha: Be on top of things in your field, because he certainly will be in his.
Some people are born in an entrepreneurial environment. Amélie probably invented the word “entrepreneur”. Looking for strength of character and drive? No problem, we’ll set up a meeting with Ms. Gauvreau. Believe us, she represents our clients as a lawyer would: nothing gets past her. If you want to thank her, be advised that she has a fondness for bubbly.
Director of Foreign Affairs
It seems that every self-respecting agency has someone from France on their team. Not to boast or anything, but we snagged the best. Justine is a super marathoner, and she applies the same discipline and dedication to every project she manages. Don’t be fooled by her cute little accent. She has a real French personality, and that’s good for all our clients, because nothing goes out until Madame is happy with it. And Madame has very high standards.
Knight of the Brand
David is a quiet force at Orkestra. From within a loud and talkative team, he rises above the fray like a shining knight and hits the mark every time, especially in his innovative concepts for corporate branding. Actually, it’s almost as if your handyman uncle and your artist cousin were one and the same person.
Illustrator of Darkness
At first glance, he looks like the kind of biker who’d run over a litter of kittens without a backward glance, but deep down, he’s our sensitive artist. He just rides a Harley. Illustration, design, screen printing—the guy can handle just about anything. What’s important is talent and vision, never mind the tool you’re using. A family really suits you, Rémi.
Countess of Cyberspace
Maxime is the youngest and smallest member of our agency team. She’s also proof that you shouldn’t judge by appearances! She applies herself to her work with a maturity and creativity that quickly make you forget that she only recently got her driver’s licence. Passionate, you say? Put your devices in airplane mode, because she’s liable to send you creative flashes at all hours of the day or night. In fact, the only thing that will calm her down is an episode of Occupation Double.
Mistress of Space
It doesn’t take long for people who don’t know Jeannine to embrace her (usually figuratively). A young artist of outstanding talent, at our agency she focuses on environmental design. She has the amazing ability to transform a warehouse into Disneyland, using two or three lights and a half-pint container of milk ... so imagine what she can do in a real work context. Jeannine is sure to surprise you, for many reasons.
Captain of Logistics
An event is stressful by definition, but it’s a lot less stressful when Alex is in charge. This isn’t his first rodeo: he’s managed the logistics team for events such as the Montebello Rockfest and the Navy Bike Ride. You read that right: he manages an event for the Royal Canadian Navy. We could go on, but we’ll let you judge for yourself when you meet him. Ah, and we apologize ahead of time for the puns.
Control Tower Operator
Once in a while, if you’re lucky, you run into a person with talent beyond their years. Andréane is in that prestigious category. You know how it is when you meet someone, and five minutes later you already trust them enough to lend them your cottage? Well, that’s why we’re confident about putting you in her hands.
Maestro of Social Media
Your posts aren’t getting any Likes? Your reach could be greater? Your shares, comments, feeds, stories, and all that other social media stuff could use some love? Mariepier will take care of all that. Besides being a Swiss army knife of event logistics, she’s our secret weapon in online community management. We’re still wondering where she finds time to study for her doctorate.
Marie-Pier will go down in history for several reasons: her flaming red hair, her boundless love of dogs, and her organizational ability. That third point may be less hot, but for us it’s the most important. It explains why this slip of a woman is assigned to so many of our projects, and why she goes through to-do lists like a hot knife through butter. And there you have it.
You have to get up early to put one over on Chantale. Amidst our motley crew, she’s a solid and reassuring quasi-maternal presence. She ensures that everything is done according to the rules of our art. Yes, art … because we’re absolutely convinced that her Excel spreadsheets will end up in a museum one day.
Strong Right Arm
Ah, Guillaume. Where to begin? He’s the kind of calm, quiet guy who takes the time to fully grasp the issues in any situation, both in the workplace and in the field. Then he channels his silence into a spreadsheet of people to call, things to buy, permits to apply for, rooms to reserve, and so on. You could almost remove the word “Assistant” from his title: Guillaume IS production.
Mireille has a major challenge: acting as liaison between Alex and Colin to oversee the Beerfest project. Those who know Alex and Colin will tell you that’s no small task; on the other hand, those who know Mireille will tell you she succeeds brilliantly. In her, kindness and character combine in perfect proportions. Thank her if you can, because she’s the one organizing the best party in town.
Minister of the Front Line
It’s important to have people who are actively involved in their workplace. That’s Geneviève. She’s involved in just about everything, especially our biggest events. She ensures that every detail is carried out according to best practices, as if it she herself had written those best practices. Because on top of everything else, Geneviève is a really good writer.
Diva of Events
Yes, it’s true: “Grandmaître” (“Grandmaster”) is her real last name. It’s a far cry from last names like “Faucher” and “Plouffe”, and it gives you some idea of her efficiency: before she’s even thought of a concept, she’ll likely be calling you to negotiate something. Jacinthe is the kind of woman who says “I’ll take care of it” 50 times a day. And she takes care of it like you wouldn’t believe.
