As a thought leader on the economic integration of immigrants, Horatio is well known for contributing towards evidence-based policy-making aimed at incorporating Canada’s immigrant entrepreneurs in a national ‘go-global’ agenda. He has contributed to public discourse on these issues by presenting at events hosted by the Conference Board of Canada, Ontario Ministry of International Trade (Canada-Ontario Export Forum), and the Economic Action Network. He has made similar contributions on the global stage by partnering with leading organizations, such as the IQ Information Centre on Migrant Entrepreneurship in Mainz, Germany. Horatio’s practical policy insights have been covered by major media outlets, including CBC News, Vancouver Sun and Huffington Post Canada. Prior to joining Ted Rogers School of Management, he worked as a Senior Analyst at Grant Thornton LLP in their Toronto-based International Tax Services (Transfer Pricing) practice.
