Being new to Canada and Vancouver, I had zero professional network and a limited understanding of what made the province’s economy tick. From day one of becoming a GVBOT member, I was instantly plugged in to the most active and connected trade network I’ve seen globally. From what’s happening in higher education, social and civic issues, local and federal government hot topics and international trade discussion, my business acumen has increased a hundredfold. Now leading a young, international sales team, I can’t recommend the board of trade enough to help develop networking skills, have up-to-date knowledge on industry trends and give back to the Vancouver business community where we can.
