About
I leverage design-driven storytelling to translate across communication disconnects between people and professional disciplines. Together, we optimize strategic business and human capital value in individuals, workforces and organizations.

Continuous Change is our new Normal. Each day, we wrestle with our capacity to handle Internet of Things technology change while delivering client-focused outcomes. I've found no better way than storytelling to deconstruct mindsets and biases separating "people value" by job titles, pay grades, levels of education and generations working either in cost- or revenue-centers.

My storytelling coaching, consulting and speaking programs focus on how you and I "Build Trust: Tell the Stories Employees and Clients really need to Hear." My customized programs center on achieving these professional outcomes: Innovative Professional Success, a Human Capital Value-focused Workforce, and Strategic Business Growth via Client Retention.

I am a relentlessly curious, extroverted STEM professional, Six Sigma Green Belt (Quality) and Voice of the Customer facilitator. I punched my ticket, as a new product development team member, to each stage of the Internet of Things technology evolution. My first projects began when there only was an Internet of “Thing,” not Things. When smart phones still looked like bricks, cars did not speak, and software interfaces were totally incompatible.

I quickly discovered that people participating in our Voice of the Customer design research projects not only brought their product prototype preferences to our design table. They also brought their stories. When our teams only were design- and data-focused, our outcomes fell short of success. When our teams connected their own stories with our participants' and clients' stories, we all got to where we needed to go: Together.

* Why continue to listen to clients only because you need to sell and make your numbers?
* Why manage projects only to check an item off a To-Do list to fulfill your KPIs?
* Why rush off to design instead of exploring the breadth of innovative possibilities?
* Why overlook the impact of your own Signature Stories in creating the remarkable and enduring outcomes which attract and retain employees and clients?

Let's storytell. To get to where we need to go. One millimeter at a time. Together.

TYPE OF EVENTS: I am honored to speak at Corporate and Association Meetings, Conferences and Events, Conventions, Monthly Meetings, Professional Learning and Development Programs and Professional Development Events.

STORYTELLING PROGRAMS:

Title: Your Professional Purpose is the Key to Your Professional Success
Keywords: Professional Development, Communication, Leadership
Description: When people ask: "What do you do?" do you respond with your job title, function, certifications or academic degree? Do people really understand what those words "mean"? Leverage purpose-driven communication, rather than relying on your professional labels. Become more visible, relevant and valuable in your career trajectory.


Title: Purpose-Driven Storytelling pokes Holes in Organizational Value Silos
Keywords: Human Capital Strategy, Professional Diversity & Inclusion, Communication
Description: How can people, who solve problems differently, better deliver differentiated value to co-workers, colleagues, investors, stakeholders, patients and clients? Attract and retain a workforce co-invested in better serving each other, so they better serve their clients.


Title: Build Trust. Tell the Stories Employees, Stakeholders and Clients really need to Hear.
Keywords: Communication, Workforce Profitability, Customer Retention, Voice of Customer & Employee Experience
Description: Do employees and clients trust the stories you tell? Are these stories actually business- or use-cases? Do your stories stop, just when they need to continue? Leverage the key components of Signature Storytelling. Create one of the most powerful human experiences of all: Trust.
