Judy Bradt began her career as a business strategist in the technology industry, with IBM Canada in Toronto, and shifted her focus from local to international in 1988. During her 15 years as the foremost expert on U.S. government contracts at the Canadian Embassy in Washington DC, she launched award-winning initiatives and cross-border programs that brought millions in new business to US and Canadian women entrepreneurs.
In 2003, she founded Summit Insight.

As a foremost procurement expert, she's received accolades from international audiences and kudos from the business community...as well as media coverage.
