I spend about half my time as an Executive Coach and guide in Leadership Development. The other half - I serve as adjunct faculty at Lewis University and Benedictine University. With over twenty years of marketing, management and communication experience, I strive to bring real world experience to the classroom.
I spent sixteen years with IBM Corporation selling, managing, recruiting and training. At IBM I worked extensively with customers – developing solutions, integrated marketing programs and developing / delivering business seminars and executive presentations.
Now, as a consultant, I have had the opportunity to work with leading edge organizations, such as McDonald’s Corporation, in leadership development. In the past few years, I have delivered management training and Executive Coaching for McDonald’s Corporation in Japan, Singapore, and Shanghai, China. And in 2010, I worked with a partner in Shanghai, delivering training to one of the largest multi-national classes at the newest Hamburger University (HU) in the world.
I have provided coaching and training in interpersonal communication, presentation skills, business writing, professional development, conflict management, emotional intelligence, team development, and other areas key to success in business.
