Magazine Coach Program

Helping Your Magazine Perform To Its Highest Potential

About the Program

Why your member magazine should participate

Participants of this program have overwhelmingly given their consultants top marks, judging that their time and money was well spent and that the consultation and coach made a significant positive impact on their magazine.


6- to 8-Month Consultations

MagsBC has received funding from CPF for 3 subsidized consultations between member magazines and Katahdin Media Management May 2024 to February 2025. Each consultation consists of 6 hour-long sessions over 6-8 months.

Katahdin will be offering the first session free, as long as spots are still available, in order that members can decide whether this firm is a good fit and can assist their team with its goals.

To arrange an initial session, please contact John Wilpers and Peter Medwid of Katahdin Media Management, cc’ing Sylvia Skene, identifying yourself as a MagsBC member, by June 28, 2024.

If the member magazine would like to have a full consultation with a further 5 sessions with the Katahdin team, the member must apply to MagsBC. If accepted, the member will be invoiced $400 toward the cost of the full consultation (a small magazine may pay $200), which is used to leverage funding for this program to pay the remaining costs.

Applications are first come, first served.

1/2 Day Consultations

MagsBC has also received funding to offer two 3-3 1/2 hour consultations to member magazines between May 2024 and February 2025 on a specific issue or initiative between an expert and member magazine staff.

Member magazines pay a $150 contribution towards the cost ($75 for a very small magazine), fill out a pre-consultation survey, have a short chat beforehand and a consultation with the expert, and receive a 1-1 1/2 page summary of recommendations.

To apply, please fill out this form and submit to Sylvia Skene, Executive Director, MagsBC. As consultations are “first come, first served,” we suggest you apply as soon as possible to take advantage of this program.

Note: members can suggest an expert, but we may choose to assign a coach we feel is a better fit, or who has more knowledge and experience. See below for some of our highly rated experts.
