Natalie Riviere


Driven to improve society by enriching the media with authentic content & the economy with social business & entrepreneurship, Commetta is Natalie’s brainchild.

Graduate of the Seth Godin Marketing AltMBA with over decade of experience in digital marketing and brand communications, Natalie and her international collective of marketing talent empower their communities to #ShineOnline.

Nominated to introduce the global FuckUp Nights movement to Montreal, Natalie and her team volunteer to grow corporate communications culture towards transparency and vulnerability through failure research & storytelling.

Passionate about peace, equal opportunities & health, Natalie is also certified in Yoga & Plant-Based Nutrition. When Natalie isn’t in Montreal, she’s globetrotting to broaden Commetta’s impact, exploring nature with her rescue dogs, or assisting meditation retreats.

With the understanding of entrepreneurship she acquired via her green family company & studying commerce at John Molson School of Business, Natalie realized that there is often little to no practical entrepreneurship training in professional education programs. This became the inspiration for an entrepreneurial endeavor of her own; a mission to empower conscious business owners, thought leaders & social projects with the communication tools they need to share their unique offerings within the mainstream media & local economies.

A trilingual Lean LaunchPad Educator (Steve Blank, Stanford University), Natalie has taught & collaborated with institutions like Global Entrepreneurship Week, Dawson College Centre for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, HEC University, YES Montreal, Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi, English Montreal School Board, Lester B. Pearson School Board, BDC, RBC & Rogers among others. Through her work relationships in Mexico, Natalie was chosen to introduce FuckUp Nights, a global event series that gathers entrepreneurs to discuss business failures & challenges, to Montreal.

Passionate about health & nature, Natalie is also certified in her practices of Plant-Based Nutrition (Cornell University, Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine), Yoga (300 Hour YTT), Meditation (Vipassana) & Snowboarding (CASI).
