Following the success of our project at the élixir contest, I received professional recognition which opened doors to new opportunities. Most notably, I participated in the definition of each step for transformational and strategic projects, the elaboration  and  application of the governing framework for large projects and programs as well as the implementation of project management best practices for the City of Laval.
