Our panel included prominent individuals experts in their field of work: Sylvain Fabi, Director of North American Relations & Policy Division for the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development; Alvaro Pombo, MBA (Telfer), CEO & Founder of Pronto Forms; Nadia Avila Lopez, Senior Associate, International Business Development Group, South America for Export Development Canada (EDC) and Sophia Leong, Director of the Telfer Executive MBA Program. The panel was moderated by Telfer’s MBA Executive in Residence and Professor, Marvin Hough, MBA.

The conference was organized by a group of MBA alumni and candidates leading the newly created LAMBA Ottawa Chapter: Angela Valdes, Ana Cerrato, David Serpa, Diego Aguirre Orué and Rodrigo Delgado. Two members of LAMBA’s Executive Team from Toronto also joined the event to support the launch of the first chapter of the association in Canada.


The evening brought together approximately 70 guests from various educational, professional and cultural backgrounds with an interest in learning about Canadian-Latin American commercial relations. Following the panel discussion, guests had the opportunity to network, interact with our panelists and exchange their perspectives on career success in Canada and potential trade opportunities in Latin America.
