A New Initiative for the Digital Commerce Community

The early months of 2011 were busier for us than usual. Thanks to some funding from IRAP, ITAC was in a position to conduct a series of forums on digital commerce in cities across Canada.

When you ask Denise Shortt about her background, the answer often depends on who is asking. This isn’t because she’s trying to be elusive.
