business strategy

The business marketplace requires strategy advice from professionals who have a pulse on market trends across industries and the world. I help businesses to grow by strategically positioning them to leverage opportunities, become market leaders and influencers, increase their impact and exposure, and scale to new heights. I advise on diversity strategy, helping businesses to recruit, retain, and advance women and millennials. I also set strategy and innovate on products and services and help start-ups and entrepreneurs pitch themselves and their organizations.

leadership & Career STRATEGY

Career advancement doesn't happen on its own. It can be challenging to know how to get from point A to point B or even know what the next step is. Working with individuals and companies, I help professionals to be better self-advocates. I listen intently to understand your holistic value and goals and combine that with my expertise to uncover and realize hidden opportunities for you. This becomes the strategy that gets you to the next level in your career and increases your impact, exposure, and influence. 

I consult on, for example, leadership presence, networking, interviewing, online presence, thought leadership, board opportunities, and management.

policy strategy

Policy and politics are complex systems to navigate. Having worked on issues ranging from cybersecurity to public health to international affairs at all levels of government, I help organizations with research, legislative testimony, advocacy, and a strategic approach to making an impact on society.
