Lou Fabiano is the COO of a small equity research firm located in Toronto, Canada. The CIMBA program had a huge impact on his career and life. Lou commented on his experience in Italy. “I went to school with kids from all over the world. Sometimes we think that our countries have a monopoly on education and intelligent people. The people I met were extremely bright. In fact, they were so smart that I was concerned that Canadians were not doing enough to compete with all these bright people. I also learned that every person has their own strengths and weaknesses. The goal is to find those strengths and be great at those things. You can try to fix your weakness but you’ll never be as good as those people who are great at it. So, surround yourself with great people. I apply this to my work today.
