Dani Gomes Ortega at Reimagine Women in Leadership
“There were so many incredible parts to the case competition! A couple of highlights would be the exciting and very steep learning curve experienced, and receiving feedback from industry leaders who could put our recommendations into practice. Their feedback helped me gain a better understanding of the real-life impact initiatives like open banking could have on Canadians. Embracing the steep learning curve with an amazing team was an unforgettable learning experience and confidence booster.”

  Dani Ortega-Gomez, Ted Rogers School of Management 2021 Winning Team Member

“My favourite part was the challenge in having to solve a complex problem that was presented as part of the case. Taking on open banking was daunting but it forced me out of my comfort zone and I enjoyed the outstanding learning opportunity."
