11 a.m. at inMotion (above):
Ask us about the most important room in our Ottawa headquarters, and you might expect us describe our enormous shooting studio, or our bank of edit suites spanning the back hallway, or our open-format kitchen where someone is always concocting a delicious solution to the noontime gnaw.
The true answer, in some ways, is simpler than that: our boardroom. We love it there. It’s where an iMac brings our colleagues from the Toronto and Calgary offices right into the room with us. It’s where CEO Pat McGowan, pictured centre, orates most profoundly on the craft of doing smart business with smart clients. Above all, it’s where we meet as a team to prepare for every pitch meeting, map out every creative strategy, and review every project delivery to see how we can amp up our clients’ smiles to a thousand watts.

11 a.m. at RocketOwl:
On any given day, on my way into the studio, I might encounter a fellow RocketOwler fluttering up the stairs. Now, there’s a chance they might be heading out for a quick coffee at the Starbucks around the corner, but more than likely they’re leaving the nest to see what’s going on in the world.
We love to meet new and interesting people around the city – sometimes even further depending on how far our wings have taken us. The relationships and partnerships we’ve developed throughout our journey are a huge part of the foundation on which RocketOwl has been built. Come by the studio for a visit and I guarantee you’ll find one of us leaving heading out in search of new friends to bring back and introduce to our flock.
