    A little bit about Mark Buzan, Action Strategies President

    Apart from operating my consultancy, I am the Director of External Communications for the Canadian Construction Association. One of my chief responsibilities is media relations. In particular, I have just begun the process of re-branding our association as a credible source for the business media in Canada. To date, my successes have included coverage for the association on Bloomberg Business Newswire and in the Atlantic Business Journal. Additionally, we were just given coverage for the first time in Maclean�s Magazine, Canada�s national news weekly!

    My work with trade publications has made the Canadian Construction Association a regularly quoted source for information on the industry. To get a glimpse of what I have done, please visit and click on the media releases link.

    I guarantee timely and informative monthly reports as well any availability you may require for teleconferences. In fact, I founded Action Strategies on the principle of accountability to the client and action oriented results for the client.
