We interviewed just over 300 companies. Roughly 1/3 of those companies had the ambition, the scale and the capability to globalize, and they were starting to consider it, and another 1/3 had all those things but no ambition to do so. What that says to me is a 100 [global champions] is a very modest target.

Covered topics:

  • Hitting reset on Canadian ambition to build global leaders in business
  • Highlights from Aimia’s original research on the perceived barriers to globalization facing Canadian businesses.
  • The value of a ‘global mindset’ and impact of personal relationships in shaping international business.
