Career strategist with 15 year history in start up companies and academic health care centers. Specializing in change management, medical research administration and compliance, with a strong focus on cross team initiatives and employee development.
With experience as the COO of a start up biotech company I understand how to set a strategic vision, and how to operationalize the right action items to facilitate sustainable growth.
Having spoken in front of audiences of 10 to over 25,000, I have the experience to help you tackle virtually any public speaking opportunity. From confidence building, to strategic planning of content, to authentic voice development and audience engagement.
How do organizations successfully lead teams, made up of different individuals, motivated by different things, all with their own ideas and visions of how and what is needed for a project? Leveraging a group's skills and motivating them to work together as a unit can be challenging, but it can absolutely be done. I have extensive experience in strategic team leadership, in organizations of all sizes, to motivate diverse teams to work together to achieve common goals.
Individuals within an organization can often feel isolated and insignificant, which leads to lower performance, dissatisfaction and instability. Over the past 15 years I have coached and mentored hundreds of individuals as direct employees, peers and colleagues to achieve and grow in their chosen careers. Leadership is inspiring people to reach for more, and providing them with the right environment to thrive. I look forward to helping you do the same in your organization. At the end of the day, loyalty and productivity cannot be demanded, only inspired.
