Bassem was a fellow student during Algonquin College’s Mobile and Social Media Management program (2013-2014). He recruited me in the final semester for an internship with the ADAO (Anxiety Disorders Association of Ontario). All the other students took the option to work alone or for a business/company, but Bassem was able to bring me and another student on board through his vision of helping out a non-profit organization, allowing us to sharpen our skills and implement our collective knowledge, taking on a focused project management role.
Even before graduation, he was planning to launch a start-up company, called Grassroots Multimedia and approached the two of us in the project to join him because he had seen potential, commitment
When he knew that I was looking for extra income, he referred me and helped me get a position to work in the 2016 holiday season as a Menswear Sales Associate at the Hudson Bay Company. He has also referred me to a current client I’m working with, for which he couldn’t continue with himself, as he took on other more intensive contracts. Finally, I have also done work with him on a recent Grassroots Multimedia client project of building a membership website using the platform
For these and other reasons, I would recommend Bassem in the role of a digital marketing coach and consultant or related
I worked with Bassem and his team during my time at the 2014 Ottawa Tea Festival. We worked together on several large and small scale projects ranging from social media material to creating actual video footage. He was punctual, thoughtful and provided deliverables on time. He was always a pleasure to speak and work with, and definitely contributed to the success of the festival.
