Tammy Deausy, Regional Director of Operations – West Coast Seniors Housing Management:
You have hit every nail on the head when it comes to the confusion, stress, barriers and road blocks that occur to navigate this complex system, when it should be so easy. There are so many layered challenges, BC with the 5 health authorities, and different funding structure, Alberta slightly different and offering an in between model with SLD4….just so many grey areas, people think they are speaking the same language and yet we come to find we are not. You add the residential care regulations alongside the community care and assisted living act, peoples heads explode. Now lets add the POA, which differs from a medical rep agreement and then talk about a MOST… Having a personalized tour guide, who has had first hand experience and broad understanding not just of interprovincial regulations but the politics that can be associated would be beneficial not just to those caring and or looking out for this vulnerable sector but also being an advocate for those seniors themselves.
Rea’s Italian Cucina
“Not surprising, the social restrictions implemented due to COVID-19 had a severe impact on our restaurant. Nancy regularly communicated with me to ensure I was aware of any government assistance we were eligible for to help us get through the financial uncertainty during this time. She also provided some guidance on post-COVID plans, giving some very viable concepts and options to consider implementing when our society opens up that will hopefully avoid a replay of this experience.”

“I am the owner of Southridge Motors Inc. Over the past several months, Nancy has helped me to streamline office and marketing processes. Most recently, during the COVD-19 health crisis, she has helped me to navigate the various relief programs available to ensure that my business will be in a position to continue to operate once the lockdowns have been lifted and we are able to function at full capacity again. I look forward to continuing to work with Nancy to enhance the growth of our business in the future.”

“I met Nancy through LinkedIn. I was in need of some ideas on how to build and run an organization. That was over a year ago. We eventually ended up meeting in Calgary when I was down for a visit. We would chat weekly about marketing, business and direction. She was extremely helpful in helping me find direction and asked hard questions to to help me grow. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to meet Nancy through LinkedIn. She is truly a passionate marketer and business coach. I would recommend taking the time to speak with her, she can help in ways that are hard to explain. Thank you Nancy for everything you have taught me.”

“Nancy Boisvert has helped me orchestrate a strategic marketing shift this year and her expertise may be of service to you, those in your organization or clients who come to you with special needs.
Nancy is an expert at strategic marketing and helped me take my 5 various and separate brands and tie them together into an overall comprehensive portfolio approach. Additionally, she helped develop my website, LynnKitchen.co, as well as managing the strategic planning for the Cafe of Dreams marketing campaigns.
I sincerely can and do highly recommend Nancy, especially when you need someone to help provide an objective top-down strategic view of your business, your marketing assets, and how to grow. And if clients are coming to you with complex problems, Nancy will make a great person to have on your team that you can partner with to help your clients achieve their objectives. “
Lynn Kitchen Consulting, LLC Financial Consultant, Producer
“My name is Seeletso Bogosi from Botswana, Africa. I started working with Agapi Marketing last year and was helped by a nice lady called Nancy. The lady is a very good asset for this Company. She mentored me on a lot of things regarding Marketing. At the time that I was talking to her, I was establishing a Marketing company so I lacked lot of information. I saw Agapi on Facebook and started talking to Nancy through messenger. She took all her time answering all my questions step by step and made me understand how this Marketing Business works, and right now I must say all the information she gave me is really benefiting me. It’s really working and she indeed made life simpler for me in business. So with this I recommend Agapi Marketing & Consulting Ltd for whoever wants to do business with them. They are good and they know what they are doing. Customer service is of high class and you can never go wrong with them. Nancy, may God help you to continue having that love for customers and take this company to greater heights. Next year is the year of growth. Stay blessed and cheers. “
Jean Marie River Development Corporation
“When Nancy was first recommended to us there was very little time and a lot of work to be done, various parties involved and several years of documentation to review. This did not phase Nancy as she approached her task with a positive attitude and was able to meet the application deadline. I would recommend her to other first nations development corporations.”

The Thomas Project
“My company has had the pleasure of working with Agapi Marketing on several projects over the past several years, and it has been our experience that Agapi brings strong expertise in marketing to the table. We primarily work with online markets and Agapi has been able to translate great marketing concepts to our online clients. Some of the ideas and support that they have provided have helped us to create successful marketing campaigns that would not have been as successful without their help.”

Integrity Pump Service
“In the fall of 2014, we contracted Agapi’s services to manage our marketing requirements. Our website was old and had many issues, and we were also looking for ways to showcase our products and services and increase awareness of our company. Nancy and her team were able to clean up our existing website and added features, such as downloadable links to products and a link to a sign-up page for clients and prospects to obtain information about product updates, making it more functional until we complete our new site. We also wanted to improve our visibility to our prospective clients, and Nancy researched various options, securing the services of a company that was able to provide online listings of our products to an existing audience. She also initiated a marketing campaign that, within the first 6 weeks, increased the number of unique visitors to our website by nearly 500%. We found Nancy to be capable and reliable, and all work was provided on time and within budget. We plan to continue to use the services of Nancy and her team as we move forward, and would not hesitate to recommend her to any company that is looking for solid, reliable and effective marketing services.”

Nancy reviewed the site and, working with Club staff, the issues were corrected in a timely manner. Nancy proved to be a very capable and reliable consultant, easy to reach, whose work was done on time and budget and who made many valuable suggestions along the way.

Investment Planning Counsel
“I am the owner and operator of a fmancial planning firm in Osoyoos, BC, conducting business in the community for the past several years. About 2 years ago I was looking to hire a marketing person to help advance my business. It was at that time that I hired Nancy Boisvert as a consultant and she has been working with me ever since. During this time she conducted a variety of duties involving marketing, public relations, policies and procedures, securities compliance, and customer service. Nancy was very keen to learn all aspects of the business and even took the initiative to get herself licensed; in a very short time I might add. Since she began consulting with our firm we have steadily grown all facets of our business but more importantly, we have further streamlined how we operate the business by systemizing the internal processes. This has increased our efficiency and increased our bottom line. Nancy’s coaching abilities have been greatly appreciated both by me and all staff. Nancy has been an integral part of the success of my business and I am sorry to see her leave. Her flagrant charm and endearing personality will be sorely missed. She has truly touched the lives of everyone in our office and my extended client base. Her splendid behavior and caring attitude, in my opinion, far exceeds the expectations of any business owner. I sincerely wish Nancy all the best in her future endeavors and I have made it clear to her that should she consider returning to Osoyoos, I would welcome her back to our organization with open arms.”

She is punctual, efficient, and genuinely interested in making our company grow. We look forward to a long-lasting, profitable relationship.”
