It’s been a big year for Delvinia and AskingCanadians and as we look back on 2013 we wanted to share some of the great things that have happened over the past 12 months.
As many of you already know, we celebrated our 15th anniversary as a company in August and we marked the occasion with a Cuban-inspired Hotel Delvinia party (hence the theme of our year-end video and the reason why Adam and Steve are in a hotel bed!)
Overall, 2013 has been a year of continued growth and innovation. Our team has grown to 50 employees and our AskingCanadians business has grown by more than 100 per cent again this year, which is a testament to our staff, partners and clients.
AskingCanadians kicked off the year by announcing the addition of Petro-Points as an incentive within its online research community and recently joined forces with Research For Good on a strategic partnership that provides our clients with access to 600,000+ Canadians—the largest singular sample reach in Canada.
We’ve also had another great year with our strategy and design work–combining our expertise in digital, data and design to roll out new innovative customer experiences.
In addition to the great client work, we’ve had the opportunity to pursue a number of leading edge projects this year:
- We developed a partnership with the Innovation Policy Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto to study eDemocracy in Canada,
- We worked closely with a new client to re-invent their loyalty program with mobile at the heart of the experience,
- We’re working with the City of Guelph to create Canada’s first open government action plan,
- And we designed an interactive brand health dashboard for The Weather Network.
Our thought leaders have also taken part in numerous speaking engagements this year; Adam and Steve have become more involved with the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association and Canadian Marketing Association, and our work has received some great recognition. You can hear more about all of that in our year-in-review video. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch!
Thank you to everyone who has helped to make 2013 a great year. We’re excited about 2014 and unveiling our vision for the next five years.
