Red Dot Digital’s co-founder, Karima-Catherine Goundiam, will be speaking at the British-American Business Council 2018 Transatlantic Conference on June 7 in Birmingham, England. The BABC annually brings together members from its 23 chapters in North America and the UK for a two-day program of high-level business discussions and networking with business executives actively involved in transatlantic business.
The event’s theme is The Future of Transatlantic Trade, and Karima-Catherine will be speaking on two panels. The first is on digital trade, moderated by John Simmons, Counselor for Commercial Affairs, US Embassy London. The second addresses opportunities for SMEs in transatlantic trade and investment.
Only 4% of Canadian small and medium businesses are involved in export. That makes Red Dot Digital a leader in this area. At Red Dot, we believe that Canadian SMEs need to expand their footprint in the global business world. Karima-Catherine is proud to speak about the challenges and opportunities she has encountered as an entrepreneur in international trade. She recently shared her perspectives on this same topic to Canada’s House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade.
The BABC has 23 US-based chapters and one Canadian chapter, the British-Canadian Chamber of Trade and Commerce, for which Karima-Catherine sits on the board of directors.
