Amelia Kennedy, MA

Lecturer, Univeristy of Victoria
Owner, Crosspoint Communications

As an international lecturer, university faculty member and business owner, Amelia Kennedy is no stranger to the public relations industry. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Royal Roads University, a diploma in public relations from Kwantlen Polytechnic University and recently completed her Masters of Art degree in Communications, Media and Public Relations from the University of Leicester in the UK.

She has spent the past several years working in the corporate and education sector and in 2007 launched Crosspoint Communications, a full-service PR consultancy that specializes in communications planning, public relations, design and event planning. She has taught at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, BCIT and the University of Victoria and has been fortunate to guest lecture at FH Wien University in Vienna, Austria and the University of Dubrovnik in Croatia. She has a passion for teaching and passing on knowledge to up and coming professionals and feels that if she can combine her love of teaching and travelling, she's got it pretty good. She has recently re-located from Vancouver, British Columbia to Minneapolis, Minnesota where she lives with her husband and stepdaughter.
