My passion? Connecting the dots between business opportunities and transformation. I love showing my clients the way to operational excellence, workforce innovations, and supply chain sustainability.
As Reinvention Strategist and Innovation Catalyst for Risktaking for Success, LLC, I’ve learned that fearlessness and transformation go hand in hand. I’ve worked for nearly three decades in strategic planning, change leadership, supply chain operations, and program transformations.
I take a practical approach to catalyzing innovation. I show my clients how to spot gaps in their business strategies and planning, how to lead and navigate disruptive environments, and how to reinvent their supply chain models in a smarter, sustainable way. My book Innovation in a Reinvented World: 10 Essential Elements to Succeed in the New World of Business (John Wiley & Sons) showcases those strategies.
Because the Past is Important
I'm proud of my teams' past efforts that have resulted in over a million dollars in savings and the creation of new revenue streams for Fortune 500 companies. Possessing the skills required for leading high impact programs, combined with an ever-evolving expertise for business group turnarounds, a colleague re-branded me as someone who would ‘Fix it, Get rid of it, or Reinvent it’.
Using my corporate experience and involvement for the past 30+ years in helping to address the challenges faced by businesses, I was inspired to take a year off in 2010 to research, interview and write IIRW, both as a practical guide for thriving in a new reality, as well as a wake-up call for executives and career professionals who haven't connected the dots between the old world and the new world of business.
Because the Future Matters
I've stepped up development of our online learning and new membership site--Seeding Change--in order to have the flexibility for researching and writing a second book. Blogging continues to be a passion of mine where I share tips, insights, and a lifetime of experience at The Practical Professional—Business Smarts for a New Reality™.
