Tailored Tech redeveloped this extremely successful program and managed it for 10 years (though March 2017). Performing turnkey management, Tailored Tech took care of all the funding proposals, meetings and reporting, hired and supervised all staff and contractors, oversaw and evaluated the program to make sure it met it’s objectives on time and on budget.
The objectives were (and are) important: save the lives and futures of young British Columbians by making them aware of a serious treatable brain condition and how to get help. Reaching 20,000 youth across BC each year, the program used an edutainment presentation format that got results, identifying young people with the beginnings of the condition and getting them to effective help.
During Sophia Kelly’s tenure as project manager, the program won a national programs of excellence award, and was featured at three international academic conferences. The unique format is being studied for implementation in other regions of Canada and around the world.
Please click on the presentation poster at right, created by Tailored Tech for the International Early Psychosis Intervention Association Annual Conference, for more information. (Note the format of the poster was a 8′ x 4′ academic poster size and has been reduced for easier viewing. )
Sophia has helped us maximize the use of our website, greatly improving communications internally between our provincial network of members, staff and volunteers, as well as externally with professionals and the general public. She has helped us quantify and evaluate our services by being available to assist provincial staff with technical matters.
In addition, she has done an excellent job of managing a number of important projects, always doing excellent work that is completed in a timely fashion.
An intelligent and clear communicator, Sophia has provided valuable advice and generous assistance far above and beyond what can be written in a formal contract.
I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
