Canada just isn’t enough anymore—companies looking to flourish increasingly must look beyond the country’s borders for opportunities elsewhere. Danielle Goldfarb, Associate Director of the Global Commerce Centre at the Conference Board of Canada, understands those overseas opportunities better than most.
