About Daniela

I was born in Switzerland, but my family immigrated to Canada in 1991 when my dad invested in a dairy farm in Avonmore. Growing up on a farm was very busy as it was strictly family operated and there were lots of mandatory chores to be done on a daily basis. It was a great growing up on a farm where at a young age we learned life lessons such as; the value of a dollar, success for hard work, teamwork and family is everything.

 Career Path

The dairy farm was not calling my name so I attended Algonquin College for Restaurant Hotel Management in 1999. That led to my career in the meetings industry.

Personal:

What is the last big change you made in your life?

I left Alberta after 17 years for a new career in a different sector of the meetings industry. The move to Ottawa has brought me closer to family.

Networking:

What is the best mistake you ever made at a networking event?

 I once called someone by the wrong name. This taught me to be honest when I don’t recall a name, unless I can read their name badge.
