Colibri Software

Colibri Software engaged Strathdee & Company to assist in the business development for a mobile application that had specific use in the tourism sector. Leanne Strathdee introduced Colibri to a wide-range of tourism partners to beta-test the application and showcase its multiple uses.

Think Sail Inc.

Think Sail Inc. realized it was difficult to attract people to a small tall ship during Tall Ships events, as people tended to be captivated by the larger ships. The owners developed children’s educational programming to attract families to the small tall ship during events, and wanted to explore the potential of replicating the program at other port festivals.

Strathdee&Company was contracted to develop a proposal to showcase the opportunity, and represented Think Sail Inc. at a Tall Ships conference, presenting to an audience of festival and event organizers, and networking with participants to determine the viability of the programming.
