Awarded to 1 Archbishop Carney Secondary Student Yearly

My daughter Zoe Boudreau graduated Archbishop Carney Secondary School in 2013. She took part in all of the art programs while she attended including participating in the design of the school yearbook which won multiple awards. At the graduation ceremony, we were overwhelmed with the generous scholarships and grants that she was awarded for her achievements in the art programs that she was a part of. Zoe attended Emily Carr University of Art + Design. With the award money that Zoe received, she was able to pay for her whole first semester. It really helped out a lot.

We wanted to show our gratitude by supporting one graduating student of ACRSS who was pursuing a post-secondary education in the field of art. Each year we donate $250 to a student who is selected by the facility.

If you are interested in applying for this grant, contact the student services to get more information.

It’s no secret that attracting and retaining customers is essential to your company’s survival as a business owner.

The evolution of the internet has changed the dynamic between businesses and customers. Consumers are no longer limited to one small geographic region to purchase their products and services. Combined with the wealth of information available at their fingertips, businesses are selling to customers who are better equipped to make informed purchase decisions.

The response from business owners has been to track, analyze, and predict future consumer behaviour through the use of statistical tools and data collection. The use of this data to predict and adapt to the changing marketplace is known as analytics.

What is Analytics?

It is anything that uses mathematics, statistics, predictive modelling, and machine learning techniques to find meaningful patterns and information in the recorded data.

Analytics has been used for some time; however, the level of sophistication of the tools used today vastly exceeds what was once available in the marketplace.

  • When you Google a product only to notice advertisements for it following you around on other platforms.
  • When you receive personalized offers in email form pertaining to a product you regularly purchase.

As a small business owner, it’s not necessary to understand the math behind analytics to make use of it. The following tips will show you how it can be used as a powerful business tool.

Understand the Behaviour of Each Demographic

By tracking the behaviour of each customer demographic, you will get a better sense of who your customers are. Analytics will show you exactly what each demographic purchases, when they purchase it, and what marketing strategies they respond strongest to.

Formulate and Adjust Marketing Strategies

Analytics is merely a tool. It arms you with a statistical break down of information to help you make better-informed decisions. While it seems only logical for business owners to track their customer’s behaviours, many are unaware of the most basic details of their desired target audience.

With analytics, you can understand the effect each decision you make has on your overall performance. This is vital for new businesses who have yet to establish a reliable clientele.

Do you need help setting up a Google Analytics account or deciphering the vast amount of information? Longevity Graphics can help!

To help introduce her to our clients and followers, read below for a brief Q and A.

1.What are your hobbies and interest?

I enjoy doing many things. I love to read and I try to do this whenever I have some free time. My favourite writers are Hermann Hesse and Mario Vargas Llosa.

I also enjoy painting in acrylic. I’m not a professional painter, but my family thinks I am very good at it.

Watching movies and documentaries on Netflix, going for walks among nature or by the ocean, watching my son’s soccer games, and listening to music are some other things that keep me busy in my spare time.

2. What do you bring to Longevity?

I bring my easy-going personality and a positive attitude, along with some previous office experience (having worked in retail, the automotive field, and construction).

3. Why did you get into the industry?

I have always enjoyed learning and trying new things. Website design was just the next point on my list! I find the entire process to be very interesting and I hope I’ll learn as much as I can about it while working for Longevity Graphics.

4. What is your favorite part of the work you do?

I enjoy the variety of the job – no two days are ever the same. There is always something new to do and something new to learn.

5. Any words of wisdom that you would like to share with our readers?

Don’t take life too seriously. Just be happy.
