Stir Marketing was a dream long before it was a reality — a dream to form a company in the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada that would provide excellent online solutions to clients who were eager to discover the power of the internet for their business needs. Now that Stir is in its 16th year (a dream come true), we try hard not to take any of what we’ve learned and achieved over the past decade for granted.
We are an innovative company that values new input and ideas. We have an exceptionally strong work ethic and a systematic approach to project management. Stir Tourism is directed by strong leaders and forged by creative genius, and we never forgot that our marketing medium is changing daily so we aim to learn constantly. We are always grateful for opportunities to apply our skills wherever we can make a meaningful impact.
In terms of culture, Stir Tourism makes use of new technology to create a work environment that allows us to get the most out of our work and our lives. We love to travel, hike, bike and play. We have families. We have hobbies. We are determined to get the most out of life and work. And that determination has been our success since 2002.
