When Gil arrived in Quebec, he did not understand a single French word, he had no family or friends in the province to help him, no established professional network and no knowledge about Quebec’s business etiquette. Today, after assisting hundreds of companies with their marketing strategies, he will share with you some stories and tips important for those considering setting up a business in Quebec.
