By Sherri Dickie
To me, our 150th celebration is an opportunity for all Canadians to reflect and to be grateful to live in such an incredible country as Canada. When I think about our country I think of its beauty. I’m fortunate to have travelled and visited many amazing places from coast to coast. I have hiked part of the Juan de Fuca trails on Vancouver Island, taking in the rainforest and gorgeous…

We are stronger because we have both men and women in leadership!

By Sherri Dickie
With International Women’s Day occurring earlier this week, I like many, took some time to reflect on the amazing women in government, technology, science and business who paved the way before me. I also reflected specifically on our own organization, Vector Marketing Canada, and thought about some of our tremendous role models, like our National Sales Manager, Angie Macdougall. I reflected on what we do well, and where we too…

How To Ask For What You Want

By Sherri Dickie
Next month, children all across the country will have no problem walking up to front doors, ringing the bell, and excitedly yelling “trick or treat”. They want candy, and they have no qualms asking for it! In fact, most young kids aren’t afraid of asking for what they want on a daily basis, even if it becomes a little obnoxious or annoying to the parents and adults around them. They…

By Riley Grieveson

I used to see Vector as something that is difficult and draining, that leaves me exhausted at the end of the day and sometimes leaving me feeling like a failure. But in my sociology class It has come to my attention that many citizens of Canada sit below the poverty line, without opportunity to grow. This means…

Tis the season for giving!

By Parker Muirhead
The holidays are here, and everybody is in the spirit of giving back. But what does giving back really mean to you? There are many wonderful people in the world who do so much to help out others in need, but the sad reality is there are many people who look out for themselves with little thought for others. You have bills to pay, mouths to feed, you need a…
