I was an entrepreneur running my own company. I am now a bureaucrat helping entrepreneurs through the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS), Foreign Affairs Trade & Development Canada (formerly DFAIT). Many companies enter foreign markets early. TCS can assist. We also can suggest other organizations, when going to a foreign market is not the answer. In my career, I have worked in both the private and public sectors, establishing a number of new programs and enterprises.
Early on I established, with my mother, a temp secretarial company. With my husband, we co-founded TM Denton Consultants, telecom and regulatory policy. I branched out established my own consulting company, serving the Ottawa foundation community and was a pioneer in community fitness programs. My last private endeavor was establishing the Foundation for Education Exchange between Canada & US, the Fulbright Scholarship program (funding by the Canadian & US governments.
