“My client firms are often daunted by the divergent attitudes and objectives of the different generations in the workplace and seek solutions for better productivity, retention, succession planning and business development success. I work with clients to conquer the things that get in the way of better business results, whether institutional or personal behavioral style obstacles.”

  • Creator of *Next Generation, Next Destination* senior professional transitioning planning services and the blog
  • Author of the marketing/business development classic book The Rainmaking Machine (Thomson Reuters, 2014) and The Marketer’s Handbook of Tips & Checklists

  • Thought leader on professional services firm workplace dynamics
  • Influence strategist and personal behavioral style expert

A special focus is on the profitability of improving inter-generational relations at work and knowledge transfer, succession and transitioning planning. We point the way to meeting those challenges with perceptive insights, grasp of the economic issues, understanding of personal style and creative tactics to achieve constructive change.

Here’s how clients and colleagues characterize her “signature style”

  • A catalyst for getting people and organizations to transform
  • Inquisitive, curious, insightful
  • Thrives on diversity
  • Bent on finding and expressing uniqueness and authenticity
  • Creative ideas and artistic flair
  • “She won’t let you off the hook” - and stays with you

Personally, she prides herself as a mother and loyal friend. She is a lover of theater, improv, jazz, cabaret, dance, and travel and an enthusiastic baseball fan as well as a collector and exhibitor of wearable art. Fun is a requirement in both work and personal life.
