Productive, International Expansion department too small and stand alone to have maximum impact and reach
Director, Business Development Advisory Services (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 21 February 2018
Open culture, collaborative, decentralized. Enjoyed meeting SMEs and helping grow their business with proven strategies and business model. How to work with other Crown corporations like EDC, global Affairs and Provincial counterparts. Requires more strategic thinking to set programs that maximize impact and reach and make Canadian SMEs the most competitive in the world.
Genuine interest to help SMEs
Better undertand SME needs and develop right programs to maximize impact and reach
BDC offers great opportunities and challenges. The mandate is one of the main reasons why I applied : help create and develop strong Canadian businesses through financing, advisory services and indirect financing, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises. How can you not be engaged when you work for an organization with this mission? People are extremely competent and collaborative, BDC is a great place to work and grow.
The challenges, the opportunities, the recognition by the management
