How Daniela is building a better working world
“I believe in creativity, innovation and change in any business or industry. I’m continuously helping clients seek new ways of leveraging technology for the benefit of investors and other stakeholders – being at the forefront of developing and testing innovative, next-generation tools which have the potential to shape the industry in the years to come.
In order to shape the future of the profession and efficiently and effectively advise clients who are rapidly embracing technology, assurance professionals have to understand, live and breathe it. I’m committed to providing my team with the learning and development resources to enhance their skills and have a blend of business and technology training. The goal is to equip professionals with everything they would need to ask the right questions, spot the right signals and provide the right insights and support to clients.
In the spirit of embracing visionaries, I’m also inspired by Canadian entrepreneurs in emerging industries who are passionate about their skills, take risks and are creative in their approach. I’m committed to connecting this group to the right mentor, business advisor or investor with a goal to empower and create future opportunities.”
