I acquired the Tradebank Ottawa rights in the beginning of 2014 and continue my passion to grow the Ottawa Trading community. The trading business model attracted me to Tradebank and I could see the potential in growing a strong Ottawa network. The opportunity to work with SME's and business owners from the local community is extremely rewarding. Tradebank has become an efficient platform for businesses to reach other businesses across Canada, growing their own client base and network. It is very fulfilling to connect vendors and buyers and see the benefits of trade deals boosting local businesses. Every day I meet local business trading allies and partners, understanding their business and needs and gathering a better understanding on how to grow their business. Our clients benefit from our business know how, our coaching, our business development mindset, our advertising mindset and also we consistently show our clients where and how to effectively spend their TRADEdollars increasing their cash flow.
