People and Process. I have been fortunate to work in a variety of companies and industries, from financial services to manufacturing. Large companies, small companies, services and hard goods all have the same things in common: People and Processes.
I have been introduced as a "Strategy Consultant" and most recently as a "Motivational Listener". My undergraduate degree is in business (finance) and a minor in behavioral studies. The combination of psychology, sociology, and cultural anthropology have benefited me in my career.
I love what I do because I inspire people. (Allow me to not be humble for a moment) Spend time talking with me and you will be inspired...I say this because it is what others tell me.
I look forward to working with you. I am an open-networker, so reach out on the channel that is best for you.
