Alex Keenan (J.D., LL.L) is a public speaking and communications consultant who has served on boards and committees for several non-profits, including grassroots, provincial and national organizations. She is passionate about sustainable communities, protection of wild spaces, and building a strong, well-resourced non-profit sector.
In her previous career, Alex worked as legal counsel for First Nations in Ontario and Quebec. She then went on to start her business, Stage Light Communications, which provides communications strategy, training and facilitation for organizations and professionals. Alex grounds her work in the principles of creativity, empathy, storytelling and community-building. She combines the art of persuasion, honed through her years in the practice of law, with techniques of performance and play that she has learned as an improv performer and teacher.
Alex lives in Ottawa with her spouse, lots of houseplants, and a sourdough starter named Stacey. She enjoys hiking, camping, sailing and cycling, and harbours the impractical dream of one day owning an alpaca farm.
