Hassaan Basit

From a Behavioural Ecology lab at the University of Toronto, to the prestigious Queen's University, Belfast for a post grad in Science Communication - my journey across the science\public engagement expanse continues! The pursuit of scientific discovery and clear communication with stakeholders are two aspirations that have driven my career, thus far.

A Masters Certificate in Business Administration from the Schulich School of Business has augmented my business knowledge, strategic planning and marketing skills.

My experience in environmental, recreation, and Canadian public service sectors has given me the ideal canvas to innovate in my field - public affairs, corporate communication, marketing management, branding, community engagement, and strategic planning. In a nutshell, it is all about telling a story, your story, to your audience.

My goal is to continue working and consulting in communication, knowledge brokering, and marketing, while specializing in engaging diverse stakeholders and multi-ethnic communities. I want to help inventive science and technology businesses, individuals, and public agencies to build their brands, engage stakeholders and transfer knowledge. Working for the UN or the private sector in the international development field would be fantastic!

Staying a step ahead of stagnation - I am always looking for the next big challenge, the next big collaboration. Thanks for dropping by and feel free to contact me.
