After one year of law at the Université de Montréal, Paul Ouellet decided to go into journalism. Today, he has over 35 years of experience in both private and public radio. In 2001, he took 13 months off to work as communications consultant to the chair of Comité de transition de la Ville de Québec. He was also in charge of producing the final report of this committee. Over the course of his career in private and public radio, he has served as field reporter, host of public affairs shows, news assignment journalist and press reviewer. Paul Ouellet has also worked as literary commentator on public and private radio. In addition to his career as a journalist, he also teaches journalism at a private school in Quebec City and collaborates with RTCOMM on workshops and in communications and crisis management.
I loved RTCOMM’s course on crisis management. The workshop really alerted me fact that a crisis always happens when you least expect it and disrupts a business. So it’s crucial to be prepared in order to deal with it as calmly as possible. This is what RTCOMM’s crisis management course with a round table simulation showed us.

Sûreté du Québec called on Richard Thibault Communications Inc. to provide distance communication training to its 85 station managers. This service enabled us to train all managers within two weeks—a process that would otherwise have taken months—and all without requiring them to travel. RTCOMM’s services saved us time and money while helping us reach our training goal.

The practical simulations of radio and TV interviews as well as media “scrum” with seasoned journalists followed by personalized feedback were the definite highlight of this top-quality course. It was professional, dynamic, expertly led, and fun.

Since our relationship began, we have been fortunate to benefit from RTCOMM’s main areas of expertise: strategic positioning, crisis management, and spokesperson training. Though their team has a knack for dealing with the unexpected—which is a valuable asset for a fast-growing company such as ours—we have always felt that nothing unexpected would ever occur because of their ability to keep one step ahead of events.

Our business relations with RTCOMM have been extremely positive over the past several years. Whether in terms of strategic positioning, training or consulting, their services have always met our expectations. We have built special ties with RTCOMM that go well beyond mere client relations; they have taken the time to really get to know us.
