Jeff’s clients are involved with strategic change —from structural to program to personnel.  Once a new initiative/project has been agreed upon, Jeff helps the leadership team plan, manage, and implement that effort across the organization by engaging all departments and/or regions to ensure successful roll-out. He has almost 30 years of national and multi-national experience from all business vantage points: entrepreneurial, agency, consulting, and client-side. Jeff brings unique and professional approach to aid C-suite leaders with project support, insights, business cases, methodology and/or project management services.

His offer is measurable: Jeff takes on projects to ensure the time, work and effort invested in the strategic planning is actually realized.  Great ideas are not realized until they are implemented and adopted: Jeff facilitates and helps manage the changes required.  He’s an expert in leadership and employee engagement: Jeff develops relevant training for each project and conducts team/departmental facilitations to generate win-win outcomes.

A former Navigating officer in the Royal Canadian Navy, he has a Bachelor of Commerce from McMaster University and an MBA from Schiller International University, Heidelberg, Germany, he went on to build a national sporting goods manufacturing and distribution business that continues to be successful and profitable today, Jeff then joined an established agency and advised and serviced both start-ups and multinationals on strategic brand, marketing, and communication efforts. After two multinational client-side experiences with Carlson-Wagonlit Travel (Paris, Minneapolis, and Toronto) and Scotiabank (International division, Toronto-based) he established his own company to provide experienced, contract staffing resources to larger institutions and companies to help them roll-out their good projects and ideas.

Jeff’s critical input is his personal leadership value system: business and project success are best achieved by facilitating frequent collaboration, truly listening, and finding mutually beneficial results. This process provides C-suite management with expertise mentoring to support the awareness, understanding and engagement of all company stakeholders—both internal and external.

Geoff Seigel Joins DART Insight and Communications Inc. as Senior Associate, Multi-Platform Media and Content Strategies

25+ Year Marketing, Advertising, Media and Strategy Veteran Has Provided Major Not-for-Profit, Corporate, Brand and Market Leaders with Insight About and Activation of Key Audiences 

Toronto—John Wright (CEO – Insight) and Victoria Ollers (CEO – Communications) of DART Insight and Communications Inc. are pleased to announce that Geoff Seigel has joined the DART team as a Senior Associate specializing in Multi-Platform Media and Content Strategies.

Geoff’s kinetic drive for each of his clients is their need to raise money or market share with new prospects, or reposition their connectiveness, with customers, clientele, or donors for big-ticket, longer haul campaigns using confident, targeted multi-platform media and content strategies.

For over 25 years, his absolute passion has been to affect change among those key audiences to activate measurable behavioral outcomes that attract and retain their attention and involvement for his not-for-profit, corporate, brand and market clients.

In a world where loyalty is literally fleeting, Geoff uses creative stimuli and communications media tools to convert those mere moments into a commitment to a long-term relationship.

Geoff’s innate skill is in getting a brand or entity right down to its molecular level—discovering the what matters to people—and then making it combustible through media and communications platforms that convey to select audiences why it matters to them and how they must participate.

While he can be drawn into a client need at any stage, his greatest achievements begin on the ground floor with RAW research—a 360-degree, inclusive investigative and interactive phase which creates maximum insight and buy-in throughout the organization for building a long term, sustainable effort.

A graduate of York University—where his honours degree encompassed a heavy dose of psychology—he’s owned, managed, and served in marketing, media and communications collective supplier agencies and spends his days doing good and influencing others through motivating and activating. Harnessing his infectious energy and infusing a high level of passion in his work and life. Not one to use an economy of words. Cycling fanatic, coffee addict, early tech adopter, media junkie and hopeless hockey dad.
