Research & Discovery
When MPI Cascadia approached me, I was extremely excited to be a part of such an organization. The mission of the MPI Foundation is to fund education and pan-industry research that drive the success of meeting professionals. The fact that I was part of the team to promote their mission through their website was a great "feel good" moment.
As I reviewed their website, I saw that it needed some love and a bit of optimizational elbow grease. So, with that in mind, I got to work.
Concept & Design
WordPress sites are quite convenient, when it comes to content management systems. It's a great platform to use because not only is it open-source, but there are so many great plug-ins to choose from.
The Cascadia site allowed for a great Slider to be utilized; which would be easy to manage, as well. It made it easy to create the necessary event pages and update the main menu. What more could you ask for?
Launch & Delivery
The website worked as expected and the event was a success! I'm having a great time managing MPI Cascadia's website. Being able to build a working relationship is great and making sure the client is fully satisfied is my target. I make sure my clients know what they are being given, nothing but quality service and a person that cares about their growth.
