When BC Women’s Hospital Foundation was invited to join with the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant, it was Helen Yu and her team at Choice Communication that helped allow us to make the most of this valuable opportunity. From planning two major press conferences to assisting with the pageant’s gala dinner, it was Choice Communication’s leadership, grace and cultural understanding that connected us not only with the audiences but also engaged staff and volunteers as well. Their dedicated and collaborative approach enabled BC Women’s Hospital Foundation to exceed its expectations and raise even more support to benefit our community.

Laurie Clarke

CEO, BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre Foundation

You have been so helpful in translating documents, providing interpretation and helping me prepare speeches in both Mandarin and Cantonese. Thank you for providing such a flexible and professional service! Vancouver is such a multicultural city and you have certainly been a great asset to the Mayor’s Office. Your work on organizing a media roundtable and your help in media relations was instrumental in communicating important issues with the general public, especially with the non-English-language media.

Sam Sullivan

Former Mayor of the City of Vancouver

I had the pleasure of working with Helen Yu and the Choice Communication team on numerous occasions over the last decade. Not only were they pleasant to deal with, they are cost-effective, efficient and really understand BC’s multi-ethnic communities. I was particularly impressed by their ability to work with our local Chinese-media in helping to raise significant interest regarding a number of initiatives and program launches we undertook. I’d recommend them to anyone looking for a professional team of communicators who understand the Vancouver media market.

Choice has been handling the corporate communications for Aspac Developments since 2003. They’ve always provided us with professional service in every aspect of their work – with fresh and innovative approaches. Their work is especially valuable when handling projects for us overseas, in Shanghai and Beijing. Their local network and knowledge of the cities allow us to achieve the objectives in a very efficient and cost-effective manner. They are always on time and on budget and often exceed our expectations.

Raymond Li

Senior Vice President, Aspac Developments Ltd.

Choice Communications did an outstanding job planning and executing our marketing campaigns for The Vancouver Sun’s new Chinese website, Taiyangbao.ca. Their strong attention to detail, deep understanding of the local Chinese community, and extensive knowledge of Cantonese and Mandarin media landscape proved to be an invaluable resource for us. In terms of results, their radio campaign directly resulted in an increase in awareness and traffic to Taiyangbao.ca; it would be my pleasure to work with Choice Communications again.

Marketing Manager, The Vancouver Sun

Helen and her team at Choice Communication provided the Richmond Spirit of BC Committee with support and advice at every step of the way. Without Choice’s involvement, our programs for the residents of Richmond would have been greatly curtailed in number and scope. Thanks to Helen and her team of professionals.

Ed Gavsie

Chair, Richmond Spirit of BC Committee

Choice Communication was a valued member of the Vancouver 2010 Bid Family. Helen Yu and her team provided excellent media relations and communication services helping the Bid deliver its messages to the Chinese community. Choice supported the Bid with outreach to the local Chinese media, event management, media monitoring and translation. The professional expertise from Choice was one of the contributing factors to Vancouver’s successful bid for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Sam Corea

Former Media Relations Director, Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation (2001-2003)

I have had a great working relationship with Aspac Developments and its communications team. I have received tremendous support each time I visit Vancouver and I am continually impressed with the professionalism dedicated towards each event. I am proud to be an ambassador for Aspac and work with a team creating memorable experiences for all. 

Patrick Chan

Canadian Figure Skater, Two-time Olympic Silver Medallist, Ambassador for Aspac Developments Ltd. (Client of Choice Communications)

We have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Helen Yu and her team at Choice Communication on several high profile and challenging projects.  One of the unique attributes of their firm is their ability to handle complex multi-culture engagements and deals with multi-levels governments at the same time.  I believe that this ability to work in both public and private sectors is one of their special qualities.

James Cheng

Principal, James KM Cheng Architects Inc.

We’ve collaborated with Choice Communication on a number of projects over the past decade, including many events and programs related to Richmond’s participation in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Their professionalism, attention to detail and insight into cross-cultural communications have been invaluable in ensuring that we successfully met the objectives of the City, her clients and our community and corporate partners. I have one simple, over-riding expectation of fellow communications professionals: that they follow through and deliver upon their commitments. Helen and her team have never failed to deliver.

Ted Townsend

Senior Manager, Corporate Communications, City of Richmond

Helen Yu and her team at Choice Communication did a terrific job helping Vancouver Foundation build connections to Chinese media. She organized a very successful event with skill and professionalism. We could not be happier with her work.
