Neovation - Ideas Whose Time Has Come - Modern Earth Web Design - Online Marketing - Winnipeg Manitoba

January 1, 2012 brought a major change at Modern Earth Web Design that was to us the natural next step in growing our business capacity as a forward thinking customer focused company – we underwent a kind of mitosis.

Dan Belhassen, founder and owner, promoted Philip Giles to President of Modern Earth. Philip, who as Vice President has been responsible for Modern Earth operations since 2011, will expand his role and take on full day-to-day management responsibilities. Dan will remain as Founder & CEO.

A new company was formed, Neovation Corporation (@neovationcorp on Twitter) which will be the development and commercialization company for R&D projects which were previously under the Modern Earth umbrella.

In addition to Dan, moving over from Modern Earth to Neovation are a number of former Earthlings, including:

  • Chad Norris – Support & Development
  • Alexandra Richards – Digital Design
  • Kathy Murray – Account Manager, SmarterU.com
  • Susan Hurrell – Marketing & Communications

All the “neovites” are committed to the creation, sales, support and promotion of great online applications for the global market.

Current products already on the market are SmarterU.com (online training and learning management system) and BinaryCanary.com (website uptime monitoring).

The newest product to graduate from R&D beta is Conference Sensation – a mobile conference application that mobilizes your event, putting event details into the palm of your hand. Conference Sensation launched in December at the 2011 LERN conference in New Orleans to enthusiastic reviews from conference attendees.

Neovation has offices in the Modern Earth Business Centre, 449 Provencher Blvd, and team members can be reached at 204-885-2469. There are positions opening in web development and sales/account management – interested persons can send resumes to [email protected] // .

You’re invited to the biggest gold party Winnipeg has ever seen, in support of cancer research and the Canadian Cancer Society.

On Friday, November 18th and Saturday, November 19th, KMG Gold Recycling will be hosting the biggest gold party ever held in Winnipeg, to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

This very special fundraising/open house event will be held at KMG Gold’s new processing facility in Winnipeg Manitoba.

Everyone recycling old, unwanted gold jewellery, gold or silver coins, or other precious metal will have the opportunity to donate all or a portion of the appraised value of their items to the Canadian Cancer Society. Tax receipts will be issued by the Canadian Cancer Society for donations in excess of $15.

Bring in all your unwanted gold, silver, platinum jewellery and KMG will appraise it on the spot for free.

If it’s not gold or silver, KMG will donate all costume jewellery and other non-precious items to Canadian Goodwill Industries.

In addition to supporting Canadian Cancer Society and Canadian Goodwill Industries, everyone will qualify for lots of great prizes contributed by many of Winnipeg’s leading companies. Such as Atomic Hair Studio, Acci-Care Accident Recovery Experts, Winnipeg Gold Buyer, and Roger Watson Jewellers.

“It’s an honour to have the opportunity to work with the Canadian Cancer Society and Canadian Goodwill Industries. This is a great opportunity to raise funds for cancer research and help the community”. Says Michael Gupton, President and co-founder of KMG Gold Recycling.

“My family has been directly affected by cancer, and Canadian Goodwill Industries helped me start KMG Gold”. Says Gupton.

As winner of the prestigious Better Business Bureau Torch Award, two years in a row, recognizing integrity, ethics and honesty in the marketplace, KMG Gold has established themselves as the leading precious metal recycler in the country. Independent third party surveys, including CBC News, confirm that KMG gold pays the highest price for recycled precious metals.

Customers outside Winnipeg who cannot make it to the gold party, visit http://www.kmggold.com and order your Secureship™ Envelope with complete instructions on how you can participate in this special event right from your own home.

KMG Gold is pleased to host this event and support Canadian Cancer Society and Canadian Goodwill Industries.
