Shari Forden-Phillips
Advertising Consultant

I have been working with CJWW for over 12 years and truly do love helping businesses succeed and grow. I graduated from the U of S with a Commerce Degree majoring in Marketing.

After graduating I worked for a few different companies, one of which was doing the marketing and advertising for an international trucking company.

Having experience on the other side of the table regarding marketing allows me to look at advertising from your perspective. Advertising has to make sense and positively influence your company’s image and bottom line.

When I am not working I am having fun with my two munchkins. I am married with a 10-year-old girl and an eight-year-old son. To say that life is busy and exciting is an understatement. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, fitness is extremely important to me. I also enjoy coaching my kids in sports and spending playtime with them.

I believe in having fun and working hard, this is something that I teach my kids and this is also how I approach working with clients as a sales representative with CJWW.

Kris Dancey, Senior Advertising Consultant with The Saskatoon Media Group since 2005. After graduating high school from MUCC in Melfort, SK I moved to Moose Jaw where I received my business diploma specializing in marketing.

Since then over the past fifteen years I have enjoyed putting together marketing strategies for hundreds of different organizations throughout Saskatchewan.

With literally thousands of companies actively marketing on a daily basis my experience has taught me the importance of being creative and finding campaigns that help you stand out from the crowd. The best part of my job is the different people that I have met and the relationships that I have developed, Saskatchewan truly is filled with great people.

Currently, my wife Jennifer and I live in Shields, SK and with our children Linden and Kate we are enjoying every aspect of lake life daily; nature walks, swimming, fishing, hiking, driving the ATV, socializing with neighbors, it really is a great place to be. Other things I enjoy in my spare time are hunting, playing sports, exercising, runs by the river, coaching and chasing the kids around. Being a Dad, watching my kids grow and develop is even more rewarding than I ever could have imagined.
