Natalie Riviere empowers entrepreneurs & social businesses to #ShineOnline & #BtheChange they wish to see with her international communications agency Commetta, specialized in digital brand marketing, strategic, reputation, & relationship management. With the understanding of entrepreneurship she acquired via her green family company & studying commerce at John Molson School of Business, Natalie realized that there is often little to no practical entrepreneurship training in professional education programs. This became the inspiration for an entrepreneurial endeavor of her own; a mission to empower conscious business owners, thought leaders & social projects with the communication tools they need to share their unique offerings within the mainstream media & local economies.

A trilingual Lean LaunchPad Educator (Steve Blank, Stanford University), Natalie has taught & collaborated with institutions like Global Entrepreneurship Week, Dawson College Centre for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, HEC University, YES Montreal, Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi, English Montreal School Board, Lester B. Pearson School Board, BDC, RBC & Rogers among others. Through her work relationships in Mexico, Natalie was chosen to introduce FuckUp Nights, a global event series that gathers entrepreneurs to discuss business failures & challenges, to Montreal.

Passionate about health & nature, Natalie is also certified in her practices of Plant-Based Nutrition (Cornell University, Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine), Yoga (300 Hour YTT), Meditation (Vipassana) & Snowboarding (CASI).
