Awards and Recommendations
Awards for doing good things better and better…
Sophia Kelly and Tailored Tech have won awards. Not that we are bragging or anything (okay a little). We won a local award for running our business in an environmentally sustainable manner. A health literacy project that Sophia Kelly managed won a national award for program excellence. The same project was also featured at three international academic conferences while under her management. Creating and managing high quality programs and projects is what we do. We can help you do it too.
Business owners and Directors of non-profits love Tailored Tech. We make you look like a hero while saving you a lot of work. We help you get more done, and we help you do it better. Sophia Kelly explains things using non-technical language, and she helps you focus your efforts where they give the most value. Read what they say about us below.
Tailored Tech designs and delivers program evaluation for many of the projects we manage. The results of our work measuring the health impact on student and school behaviour of an educational program was selected for presentation at an international conference attended by academics and clinicians from all over the world. We’re very proud of it.
The ReachOut Psychosis program, managed by Sophia Kelly of Tailored Tech, won the Schizophrenia Society of Canada Initiatives/Programs of Excellence Award for 2008.
Tailored Tech (formerly Sophia Kelly Technology Tailoring) has been involved with the ReachOut psychosis project almost since it’s inception. As project manager, Sophia Kelly has coordinated rapid expansion of the program, which provides important early intervention education to psychosis onset age youth, embedded in a rock concert and spoken word presentation. The program reaches over 24000 youth per year with information that helps get young people with emerging psychosis to medical help fast.
Sophia Kelly Technology Tailoring (now Tailored Tech) won the 2006 Environmental Stewardship Excellence Award from the GLBA (now LOUD business). The other nominees were two environmental organizations doing great work – The Cooperative Auto Network and Better Environmentally Sound Tranportation.
Sophia was awarded the prize in recognition of many years of service to the environmental movement, including most recently co-founding the Vancouver Renewable Energy Cooperative, a workers cooperative and nonprofit which sells and installs solar energy systems. She also practices environmental conservation in her business and transportation practices.
