You made it! You wanna know more about us Gals? You wanna hear more about our PERSONALITY, PASSION & PURPOSE?
Ok.. You asked for it!
Personality is a BIG part of Gal Friday. Yours is important, and so is ours. IT’S BIG! Ours, I mean. We laugh loud, groan about needing more coffee and we cuss.. (that’s swear words to you young folk.) We also show our love. We get enthusiastic about EVERYTHING! We say the words “OH MY GOD” and “Long story, short” (and it’s NEVER short). We talk in thought bubbles, not in a linear fashion AND we hug. We hug a lot.
Passion is also a BIG part of the way we work. We LOVE our jobs. Simple as that. It means that if we get carried away you may receive emails at all hours of the night about an AMAZING idea we just had. Also - and this is not a cliche plug - Going above and beyond is in our DNA. Honest. Sometimes to the point of our detriment but you and your business become OUR business and we care so much that we give and give. It’s just in our nature.
Purpose. OK Purpose is the biggest part of GF. (I know you’ve read that before lol). But this is a biggie. We realized the true reason (aka Purpose) why marketing is it for us. It’s because we LOVE to help. Help build you up as a person, as an entrepreneur. We love to help you solve problems and we love to make your life easier. The goal of GF is to work with Non Profit Organizations, Charities and well.. good people who DO GOOD.
Want More? Here’s Our Values
01. WE WORK HARD
Really hard. Your success is our success. We run instead of walk to get your projects done right, on time and on budget of course. We bend over backwards to give you what you need to succeed. You may get emails at all hours of the night. We apologize in advance.
02. WE <3 PEOPLE
Relationships are everything. We value time getting to know you and not just cause you're the BOMB.com. We want to find out what makes you tick, what makes your heart skip a beat, and what makes you extra special. We love using those goodies to your business' advantage.
03. WE <3 GIVing
We've got a heart on -- for charities and not for profits that are near and dear to our .. well .. hearts. Anything community that we can get our hands on, we are all over it (like us on a bag of potato chips.) If you work for a company that does good in your hood, we want to work with you.
04. WE COLLABORATE
We have a tribe. a gang, a posse, a formation. Our network of badasses is indisputable. If we can't do what you need done, we know a gal who can. If you need a rare taco experience in your life or to meet one of our friendtrepreneurs for a trep-shesh we'll hook you up.
Wait… Who Dis?
Founder | Creative Director | Ray of Sunshine
Chantal Crockatt, Founder of Gal Friday is best known for her intense laugh, humour, and strategic creative wizardry. Her weak spot: tacos & social good collabs, especially with other local big hearted businesses.
Chantal is a natural marketer. She's a Jane of all trades. She designs. She writes. She sees the magic in you and can teach you how to use it to your professional advantage. Chantal also happens to be a superhero multitasker. Her past experience with being a preschool teacher with an exciting (yet very opposite) juxtaposition as a purchaser, estimator and contract specialist in the homebuilding industry, gives her the benefit of a right-brained and left-brained approach. She can see your business from all angles.
She will be your new best friend and your best ally for marketing your business.

Account Manager | Writer | Culture-ologist
Dani lives by the five C's: caffeine, curiosity, creativity, community and conversation. Throw in some live music, some good books and a glass or two of wine and you've basically summed her up.
She has a deep love of the arts and culture (so much so that once upon a time she opened her own commercial art gallery), a knack for words and a passion for building stronger communities and making the world just a little bit better.
A serial optimist, creative and a new Calgarian (yes she cheers for the Jets... don't hate her), when she's not pounding the pavement as Client Success Manager for local tech start-up Goodpin or being the newest Gal Friday, she's probably wandering the bookstore drinking coffee or heading to the mountains, music in her ears.

Meet Julia. She’s the quiet one. Jules is our resident calmness specialist. She’s the Yin to our Yang.
As a long time professional in the energy industry, Julia’s specialty is Corporate Social Responsibility.
She’s the gal you call when you need someone ballsy but chill in your corner. Not the one screaming go go go but the one calculating just how hard your next punch needs to be as she whispers into your ear that “yes, you can do this”.
A mom of two crazy boys AND she’s got an MBA… that she took while pregnant and chasing a toddler around. NBD!

Ad Guru | Data Nerd | Herder of Cats
Say ahoy-hoy to Robin. If you need to get your message out, he's your new best friend. Robin is highly skilled at turning cash into clicks and conversions. (We like that here).
Like no one ever, Robin loves to live in spreadsheets. All his decisions are driven by data, which makes him pretty much the most popular person at a mixer.
He's a super outgoing closeted introvert with two perfect children, a perfect wife, a perfect house, and a perfectly distorted sense of humour.
Robin has a cautiously pessimistic outlook on life, a teeny fear of flying, and one hell of a squash backhand.
He'd be delighted to make your acquaintance.

Steph’s photos are dreamy. She has a knack for making you LOOK GOOOOD. She’s also a hoot.
When she’s not behind the camera you can find Steph chowing down on mozzarella sticks, hanging out with her cat Gus and watching Friends (for the 15th time).
She loves food like the rest of us: “If the option to get sushi is on the table I am always game.” And if we're being honest, Steph would rather be living in a lei than a parka - Hawaii there she goes! NO QUESTION. Too bad all the people she loves lives here in “Berta. Travelling is as much a part of Steph as breathing - She has (so far) visited 16 countries and she ain’t done y’all.
