WHO WE ARE

—— AN ECLECTIC GROUP FOR DISRUPTIVE MARKETING ——

Meet Team Strategis

Strategis Consulting is a mashup of creativity, talent, and expertise!

The Strategis cast falls somewhere between Monty Python and Saturday Night Live. We are artists, wine tasters, parents, travelers, golfers, surfers, film buffs, gamers and everything in between.

We apply to your projects a kaleidoscope of creativity, talents and experience. We are a multilinguistic, multicultural incubator where the cross-pollination of ideas flow freely. For each project, we mindfully select the best talent for outstanding results.

Get To Know Us Better

Our Story

Our Goal: Connect our Clients with Success.
Philosophy: People want to do business with people they like and trust.

Trust is the bedrock of our relationships. We knew that to earn the trust of other business people, we would need to demonstrate integrity in all aspects of our work—always. Earned trust also demands that we have the expertise to deliver to our clients what wesay we will.

Inter-business friendships make life better. We emotionally invest in your success. How so? The work we do for our clients’ is personified by collaboration, teamwork, and professional partnerships. We want the experience of working together to be both fun and productive. Being likeable on and off the “playing field”, fosters open communication, reduces stress and increases productivity. It’s the only way.

Business is serious business. Money and profits are important to us. We know it’s important to you, too. At the same time, our reputation with our clients is more important than for us to turn a profit. We still like to turn a profit! But we will not sacrifice our professional friendships with our clients for the sake of profit.

To some this may appear unrealistic in the 21st century. To others it may sound quaint or old fashioned. But for us it’s our philosophy. And it works!

We are with you in success!

He leads a group of executive level professionals who specialize in online and offline marketing, branding, media relations, and social media marketing.

Dennis is fully bilingual in Canada’s two official languages.

Tiffany

Communicator by Design

Tiffany has been in love with graphic design her whole life. It’s in her DNA.  So, not surprisingly, Tiffany graduated from Malaspina University College in 2006 with a diploma in Graphic Design.  Her philosophy is simple: “It takes the eye 300-400 milliseconds to blink. And people form aesthetic reactions to a visual in the first 17 to 50 milliseconds after exposure. So, keep it simple; keep it compelling.” Tiffany has worked with a variety of clients on a broad spectrum of projects from branding to website design. She has lived in South Africa, Italy, Nicaragua, Vancouver Island and now in the Lower Mainland of BC.  This experience and her international travels, brings a unique perspective to her designs. Tiffany is waiting to tell your story through graphic art.

Vivian is an engaging people person who everyone loves to work with. And he also has the chops to dig deeper into the science of online marketing strategies and tailor them to your unique business needs. In other words, generate sales leads and conversions.

Vivian’s philosophy is that there are numerous methods to effectively generate sales, however the ones that really deliver are those that draw on the behavioural sciences to help determine the best marketing channels for a given audience, and that a company puts its heart into.

Contact Vivian to learn how to capitalize on online marketing—Google ads (adwords), social media marketing, geoconquesting, e-mail campaigns, chatbots and CTAs, and others.
