How to tackle the many difficulties entrepreneurs face today?
Dorothy Tembo, Deputy Executive Director, International Trade Centre
Dorothy Tembo will talk about ITC’s mandate to reinforce the private sector in developing countries, focusing on women and supporting them to develop further and help tackle difficulties through a new application that facilitates networking and visibility amongst women leaders. Indeed, women’s contribution to the economy is undeveloped everywhere. One of ITC’s goals is to improve that through trade and export.
Dorothy Tembo will tell us about her career path, negotiating with politicians, ambassadors and other public figures. How did she get to where she is today? What kind of obstacles did she face and how did she overcome them?
