Philippe Desjardins is Business Consultant at the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) where he helps entrepreneurs use Internet to promote their business and make the best use of technology. Philippe has over 15 years of experience in technology and marketing and has worked for companies such as Telus and Distributel. He has developed digital strategies and revamped websites for many of his clients, helping business owners increase their company’s sales, brand awareness and productivity. An entrepreneur himself, Philippe has a practical understanding of the daily challenges business owners face and is well positioned to provide adapted strategies that speak to both technical and entrepreneurial audiences.
