Colleen Power is playing an important role in Nova Scotia’s international trade development as a Trade Strategist with Nova Scotia Business Inc., the province’s private sector-led business development agency.
“I’ve always been drawn to the dynamics and diversity of international trade,” says Colleen.
I chose to apply for the FITTskills program to expand my knowledge on trade fundamentals, and to apply this knowledge to my work in trade research, strategy and development.
As NSBI’s trade sector strategist, Colleen supports the research needs of the agency’s trade development team; working with them to help identify international markets that are a good fit for trade missions in NSBI’s sectors of focus. Colleen also manages NSBI’s Trade Market Intelligence (TMI) program, in which she works directly with Nova Scotia companies by providing customized research and analysis to help companies evaluate and pursue international markets for their products and services.
“I’m proud to have received the CITP designation and feel it is a great complement to the work I do leading NSBI’s TMI program and in helping Nova Scotia companies become more globally active and competitive,” says Colleen. “As a born-and-raised Nova Scotian with over 10 years of experience helping SMEs start and grow, I care about the local economy and want to contribute to its success.”
