It is an honour to be recognized by Forbes beside my fellow peers in business. With multiple exits under my belt, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest in the industry, building and scaling businesses, attracting the perfect fit customers and – in some cases – finding the right suitors to bring our companies into their fold and to the next level. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and helping others fast-track their sales, marketing and business development efforts.

Big ideas on small business.

With exposure also comes influence. As a member of the Council, Anastasia will have an opportunity to advocate for issues that impact small businesses, like those of Wagepoint clients.

Anastasia looks forward to sparking discussions about new, disruptive paths to success, like incorporating emotional quotient (EQ) into every molecule of business.
