It's summertime here in Saskatchewan and that means festival season is well underway!
I had the opportunity to meet up with my friends and official search partner Directwest for the 32nd Annual Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival. This 10 day festival featured over 70 artists and attracted thousands of music fans to Saskatoon's Riverbank and downtown core.
Directwest is a Saskatchewan company focused on helping over 20,000 customers in the province grow their businesses and reach a bigger audience. Using a "locals first" approach, they strive to help businesses flourish with eye-catching advertising services like website development, social media marketing, digital billboard ads and so much more!
But that's not all they do.
Directwest is also an active supporter of the community. At the Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, Directwest was the presenting sponsor of the City and Colour concert and took the chance to thank some of their local business customers by treating them to the show!
High up, overlooking the Bess Gardens, we enjoyed the views and sounds of the show. I chatted with a number of people who were representing either their business or company at this fun evening out at the Jazz Festival.
Often, there were words spoken of their deep roots with the Directwest team. Passion, loyalty and amibition were common themes from those I spoke with.
Chatting with a number of customers, I could tell they sincerely valued their relationship with Directwest. And, it wasn't like a typical business relationship: "It's like a family relationship, where we feel we have full support all the time." said one enthusiatic Directwest customer.
Another spoke fondly of the company saying, "From a local business, to another local business, I am happy to be working alongside a loyal, energetic and motivational company, who strive to help customers succeed!"
Directwest is focused on Saskatchewan, and that is clearly important to their customers.
So on the night of taking in music and majestic views of the Bess Gardens, a great time was had up top the Castle on the Prairies. From this experience, I learned more about Directwest - how a great team of dedicated people continuously make a postive impact on local businesses and the community, help drive the local economy, and how service comes first to provide the best quality experience for their customers.
I am more than happy to be partnered and working alongside such a great company, and even better, people!
