Every year, we pay a visit to our "regional office" in the north - Tammy and Mark Beese of What's Up Yukon. Each trip, we meet more great clients, and visit some very beautiful places. We first met the Beeses in 2007 at the BDC Young Entrepreneur Awards (Tammy won for the Yukon Region).
Our partnership with them as the Modern Earth Yukon Branch office has been good for both What's Up Yukon, and us here at Modern Earth - allowing both companies to provide services to a diverse range of northern businesses like North Star Mini-Storage, Terrotirial Auto, and the Norcope construction group.
This year, for example, we visited our clients in the Town of Faro, north-east of the Territory's capital Whitehorse. In the picture below, you'll see Tammy Beese and myself with Erica Ward from Faro's municipal office, who we're working with to build a new website to show off the mountain town's charm.
Our partnership with What's Up Yukon and the Beese's has expanded our horizons as a web design and online marketing company by opening up an entirely new market for us - and we are excited by the ongoing and growing business development and entrepreneurship that is happening in the Yukon. It always reminds us of the dynamic growth that is happening here in Manitoba - only with much different scenery. We look forward to exploring more of Canada's north and working with more businesses in the Yukon!
