Memorial with Clear Vision

Date: April 10, 2017 Author: Susanne Sukic Categories: Blog

With the advent of Canada’s sesquicentennial, I find myself reflecting on one the first projects I witnessed manifest from bare wall to meaningful tribute.  Our relatively young nation has developed as a result of visionaries, a united belief system and continual investments of our fellow Canadians.  I think of the maple leaf, Justin and his infamous father Pierre Trudeau, Louie Riel (Heritage Minutes), Laura Secord... the discovery of insulin and all those who served and continue to...

Here We Go Again

As I take a look at our website to see where we can improve, update, add etc…I came across our CIBC Wood Gundy case study in our portfolio section and I can’t help but chuckle.  I am working on their 2016 awards right now and I am amazed at what a long standing relationship we have developed.  I have had the pressure; I mean pleasure of working on their sales awards for 15+ years now.  As illustrated in the case study, we have come up with many very unique awards and gifts for this...

Unrealistic Expectations

Date: March 13, 2017 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

From time to time we come across clients that have very unrealistic expectations.  They have a beer budget but champagne taste.  They want impressive recognition plaques or awards that recognize the accomplishments and/or generosity regardless of their assigned budgets .  It is not uncommon for not-for-profit organizations to think that because they are a charity that we should be working for them for free.  So how do you deal with this demographic?  We walk them through the process and...

Satisfaction In A Job Well Done!

Date: February 27, 2017 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

We recently completed a massive project for SickKids Hospital.  It is the biggest donor wall that we have ever produced and it truly was an enormous amount of work.  The level of commitment and intense concentration required was substantial.   The timeframe for completing this project was the shortest we had ever faced considering the scope of work that needed to be done and it required an intensity unlike we had ever experienced before.   To meet the deadline it was an...

Accuracy & Accountability Are In The Details

Date: February 13, 2017 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

We produce several donor walls a year, both cumulative and campaign walls.  There are typically many donor names / donor plates or plaques on these walls which require a great deal of organization in order to make sure no one is missed.  The level of attention that the Project Manager needs to dedicate to projects such as these is remarkable.  But this is where we excel.  We are known not only for our high quality of work but for the ability and willingness to service our clients after...

New Year's Resolutions

Date: December 23, 2016 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

As we approach the New Year we can look upon it like a blank book open to any and all possibilities.  It’s that time of the year when we make promises to ourselves to change bad habits, adopt healthier habits and make positive changes that will lead us to a happier self.   It is also that time of the year when we are bombarded by advertisements suggesting we join a new gym, purchase new exercise equipment, start taking vitamin supplements, buy and eat healthier snacks, get into a new...
