ONQ is a family of live event professionals. Our team includes event managers, client consultants, artist managers and a branding team. Each team member brings a specific skill-set to your event by communicating together, ensuring that the planning of your event is a harmonious process. The ONQ “SOP’s” (Standard Operating Procedures) ensures every client event is professionally managed exactly the same, from start to end.


ONQ scouts train & manage world-class artists all year round. Every clients event is different, therefore ONQ has a diverse array of artists covering a collection of different genres. Every year, you can expect something new from our line-up of artists. A wide array of performances can be provided from 10 piece themed Big Bands, Cultural shows (West Africa, Spanish Flamenco), to experimental new forms of musicianship combining traditional instruments with new technologies giving new sounds and visuals.

Rouba, born in Lebanon, moved to Canada with her family at a very young age and settled in the neighborhoods of Toronto.  From a very young age, she believed in the notion of 'you can do whatever you set your mind to'.   She’s always had a passion for creating fun-filled events for her close family and friends, but always wanted to take it further.

She has also activated events for several organizations with the most recent ones being the Lebanese Film Festival, the Toronto Chapter, hosted at TIFF and the Taste of Middle East Festival (TOME). Her role at both festivals was to oversee the execution of all the logistics and augment the curation of the live performances.   

In 2017, she joined OnQ Live Entertainment to lead the sales division from inception. She continues to succeed in establishing a name for the organization while offering opportunities to diverse world class entertainers based in Canada.
