Examples of Achievements

Business development in Asia?

L1140088One of my major achievements was to open up the Asian market by conducting market research and getting a first project with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for the Consortium for International Development in Education (CIDE).

The overseas training program for upper secondary and professional teacher development project was to support the training of staff of the Ministry of Education of Vietnam and Vietnamese principals through a partnership with several Canadian colleges and universities, including McGill University and the University of Toronto.

I set up a satellite office in Hanoi to make the selection and to prepare 24 participants. The Asian staff recruited subsequently supported various efforts to respond to calls for tenders for projects in education in Asia.

I also developed a network of contacts in Montréal and Toronto, enabling better integration during official visits, including interpreter services.

Finally, I set up a Web platform in 2 languages ​​(Vietnamese and English) to make all relevant information available to participants.

The project is one of many other technical assistance projects that I coordinated for the CIDE, which included projects in Cambodia, Laos and Mongolia.

Investment plans and financing strategies?

iStock_000004737163LargeI developed fifty projects, some worth over C$10 million, as head of business development for CIDE, and thirty projects for Oxfam-Quebec (OQ).

At OQ, between 2011 and 2013, I participated in the development of a five-year investment plan for Oxfam International to ensure the growth of small and medium-sized Oxfam affiliates. The Oxfam Confederation has 15 affiliates worldwide, including Japan, Hong Kong, Great Britain, France, Holland and Australia.

In addition, I developed joint strategies with more than ten new OQ institutional partners.
These partnerships have enabled the organization to negotiate access to new financing through the affiliate’s donor, including the French development agency (AFD). These funds were to support OQ’s programming in West Africa, North Africa and the Middle East, as well as in Vietnam.

Among financial arrangements for the École de technologie supérieure (ETS), are agreements with science and technology funding agencies in Peru (CONCYTEC) and Ecuador (SENESCYT). These agreements have helped secure funding for thirty doctoral students at ETS, covering their tuition fees and living expenses.

COLLABORATION IN RESEARCH AND INNOVATION?

1969278_225790507616750_984706683_nThrough an analysis of opportunities in the Latin America and a series of targeted interventions, I acted as a Senior international adviser for the École de technologie supérieure (ETS) for the negotiation of several bilateral agreements frames in Latin America.

In 2013–2014, I led and supported the arrival of delegations from many countries, such as Brazil, Columbia, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador and organized missions in Ecuador and Peru with researchers from ETS. I also participated in the CONACYT promotional tour in Mexico.

Research collaborations between ETS and partner universities were among the programs negotiated, specifically with the head of research programs in aerospace, robotics, renewable energy, environment, health and safety, health technologies, and many other engineering programs.

Expertise

As a consultant in different countries and director of business development, I participated in the design, management and evaluation of several international projects, many in the field of education, in partnership with Canadian and foreign firms.

I recruited and selected educational experts from around the world, many from universities.

In addition, as a communication expert, I carried out several international projects funded by various multilateral banks.
