About Cristina

I am a highly motivated and resourceful professional with over fifteen years experience working for large multinationals in Canada and South America. I specialize in business development, sales and entrepreneurship.

My professional work experience has been focused on leading proposal and capture management activities with a particular focus aimed at winning government and public sector bids. This involves managing proposal responses and leading multiple subject matter experts, particularly in the fields of technology, document management, call centre services, outsourcing, program administration and other service operations.

As a graduate of the MBA program at the Gustavson School of Business (Victoria), I am an active leader of business alumni and have served as Chairperson of the largest Alumni Chapter for the business school.

I am passionate about entrepreneurship and looking forward to meeting like-minded people interested in entrepreneurial ideas that disrupt the world for the betterment of the environment.

I am currently working on an online platform start-up I believe will have worldwide reach and has the potential of disrupting the printing industry. I am currently looking for potential co-founders to join me in this journey...
