Toronto’s Red Dot Digital Honoured with Major Award from OWIT
Red Dot Founders’ Mandate of International Trade Recognized
Toronto, ON – September 20, 2018 – Red Dot Digital, an international management consulting firm that meets with digital genius, today announced that their Founder and Managing Director, Karima-Catherine (KC) Goundiam has been recognized by The Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT) with their Joanna Townsend Excellence Award for Leadership in International Trade.
The award recognizes an outstanding woman in Ontario who, through her business and personal networks, acts as a trade advocate and mentor for women, fostering opportunities that actively support women entrepreneurs or professionals to achieve success in international business.
With representatives in Toronto, New York, London and France, Red Dot Digital has spent much of the last 2 years actively building relationships in the UK and France, including participating in a Toronto Board of Trade mission to the UK. Red Dot has joined both the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry and The British-Canadian Chamber of Trade and Commerce.
“This is an important time to be looking for business growth opportunities in International Trade. Though we are still dedicated to growing clients in Canada and the US, we’re finding that other markets are much more receptive to our holistic Digital consultancy concept,” said Karima-Catherine (KC) Goundiam, Managing Director of Red Dot Digital. “Canada is catching up, but businesses in London are already seeking out this type of consulting engagement. Not to mention, company’s outside of North America are looking to Canada as a more stable country to do business with.”
The awards were presented at a ceremony on September 19th in Toronto.
