Marketing & Business Strategy

We’re a Marketing Firm.

So, let’s begin with an analogy. (It’s only fitting.) On a browser, when you hit “Refresh” you don’t leave the page you’re on – you get a renewed look at that same page. Clicking Refresh means an update – not a brand new start. If a page has gone stale, you hit Refresh. Magic happens. Links work again and content repopulates. Choosing Refresh breathes life back into the page and renews the conversation.

You’re here. So, unless you’re an envious competitor checking out our latest work, you’re probably considering a Refresh on some aspect of your business or organization. Perhaps your website is lazy; or maybe you have stagnant merch collecting dust on shelves; or there’s a chance you simply need to attract new talent to a couple of open positions. Refresh can do that for you. We refresh websites. We refresh marketing and business strategies. We refresh advertising. But, most importantly, we refresh brands. And a Refreshed brand is a powerful brand. A Refreshed brand aligns with your long view and gets folks engaged.

You know your business. You’ve built your client base. We appreciate that fact. As such, we feel our business is not telling you how to do your business. Our business is to provide you with practical advice, strategy, planning, and creative related to how your clients look at (and, more importantly, talk about) your organization. And a Refreshed brand means we provide expertise on how you can manage that perception – especially digitally and online. Our job is to hit refresh in your clients’ minds. Keeping you top of mind.

Creative Execution

We hit Refresh through marketing, advertising, digital smarts and social prowess.We integrate innovation, technology, and business strategy through a marketing lens. Often, we do this through online or digital means. But we’re no strangers to traditional forms of advertising. A quick look at our portfolio will show you we have industry leading strategic smarts and creative chops.

Our Why

Why do you do what you do?

This is a question we take very seriously. (And you can expect to hear this question when you visit or call us). For those of us at Refresh, it’s not so much a soul-searching question as much as it is a simple statement: we love advertising and marketing, especially digital, and we exist to inspire our clients to be remarkable.

Some people put their heart and soul into creating craft beer, others a fine wine, and others still a multi-layered sauce customized daily to compliment a perfectly-grilled pork tenderloin. We put our heart and soul into tirelessly developing an understanding of who you are as an organization, punctuating this understanding with an agile and aligned strategy, and finishing with metric-friendly creative — executed with precision.

Clearly, we should be working with you, too.

The Marketing Students’ Society Presents:

The 2016 Refresh Case Competition






Our mission is to create an exciting event where students can demonstrate their skills and knowledge to the business world by applying them to a relevant marketing problem.



We are excited to announce the third annual Refresh Case Competition, brought to you by the Marketing Students’ Society (MSS) at the University of Saskatchewan and Refresh Inc.

This case competition is open to all undergraduate students enrolled at the Edwards School of Business, with a focus on individuals pursuing marketing and management majors. The event was created to promote innovation and creativity, and to enable students striving to pursue a career in marketing an opportunity to showcase their talent to established business professionals in Saskatoon.

Last year, fourteen teams of two students participated in this exciting and unique competition. Teams were given a case provided by a local business, requiring students to analyze and recommend strategies on an identified marketing problem within the company. The top three teams presented their ideas at the final gala to the case sponsor, industry professionals and sponsors, Edwards’ faculty, and their peers.

The case competition serves as a platform to bring business students together with industry professionals to inspire future partnerships within our community.



The Refresh Case Competition is a three-day event that involves networking, case presentations, food and fun.

  • Opening Night: Competitors are introduced to the case. Students have an opportunity to mingle and meet their opponents. (Date: February 11th , 2016)
  • First Presentation: Each team presents their analysis and recommendations to a panel of judges. The top three teams then advance to the Final Presentation Gala. Prior to the Gala, the final three teams meet separately with Edwards professors to hear suggestions on how to improve their recommendations and hone their presentations. (Date: February 24th, 2016)
  • Final Presentation Gala: The final night is an opportunity for sponsors, industry representatives, businesses, and students to connect, socialize, and share ideas. The final three teams present their revised solutions to a panel of judges who then select the winner. The winning team is awarded a four-month internship with Refresh. (Date: February 27th , 2016)

For more information please contact us below.



In order to make this event possible we require support from our local business community. By sponsoring this event your organization will not only be providing students with an amazing experience, but also receive several benefits:

 Network with future employees and industry representatives

The Final Presentation Gala presents a unique opportunity for students and industry representatives to connect, and allows business professionals the chance to seek out potential future employees. The Gala also provides an atmosphere conducive to connecting industry representatives with one another. We encourage all of our sponsors to attend the Gala, as their participation is what makes the event so special and valuable to students.

Promote and showcase

The Refresh Case Competition is designed to afford industry representatives the opportunity to showcase and promote their organizations to everyone involved. Business leaders are able to meet with Edwards students and other sponsors to discuss the attributes of their respective organizations.

Brand Recognition

We provide our sponsors with numerous opportunities to showcase their brand during the competition. And, to that end, we ensure that our sponsors are well-recognized for their contributions to the competition’s success. As shown by the chart below, higher levels of sponsorship mean greater exposure for your organization’s brand. Our Gold, Silver, Executive, and Case-Level sponsors all have the opportunity to contribute promotional items to our “swag bag” given to all participants in the competition. All sponsors’ logos will be showcased on a large banner throughout the competition, with Gold and Silver sponsors receiving additional media recognition.
