Dominique Bergevin 2016

Dominque Bergevin has 15 years international business experience at Export Development Canada (EDC).  She has held positions in business development, marketing, risk assessment and underwriting; and through these different lenses has supported Canadian companies in going, growing and succeeding internationally.  Dominique has published articles, white papers and delivered online webinars and vlogs, broadly sharing her knowledge of emerging market politics and international trade.   

As EDC evolved its corporate culture with Lean management systems, Dominique shifted her career focus.  In 2012, she took on the role of Lean Sustainability Advisor where she coached employees on Lean problem solving and spearheaded a Lean Leadership initiative, blogging on lean practices and challenges along the way.  Dominique is now the Operational Excellence Coach of a senior leadership team at EDC, supporting the corporation’s chosen top down Lean maturity model.  Dominique has taken a particular interest in Appreciative Inquiry as a complementary approach to continuous improvement and Lean sustainability, which has helped her humanize and energize the cultural change dimension of Lean.
