Apply lessons of innovation, ambition, growth at scale and forward-thinking leadership

I am a Silicon Valley veteran with 15 years of experience as the Executive Business Partner for Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO of Amazon, and Eric Schmidt, CEO/Executive Chairman of Google.  My very first job when I was 16 was working at a startup in Redmond, Washington called MusicWare - back when no one knew what a startup was. Growing up in Seattle during the original dotcom boom, surrounded by companies like Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks, was a master class in innovation and it changed the course of my life.

Hello

Build a global growth strategy and perspective

get in touch 

I love applying the lessons of innovation, ambition, growth at scale and forward-thinking leadership that I learned at Amazon and Google to expanding businesses and individual careers. I bring a global lens to every project and am committed to democratizing the internet and bringing underrepresented voices to the forefront. I value being the down-to-earth mentor you always wished you had for the key decision points in your life and career. 

Let's work together

I am committed to helping high performing CEOs obtain their ultimate dreams through strategic decision making. I only take 5 consulting clients at a time to ensure my ability for deep impact and availability. I commit to each consulting client a minimum of 1 hour a week for strategy calls and up to 1 week a quarter of face-to-face time at their headquarters for strategy sessions with their senior leadership team.
 
Some of my consulting clients include the CEOs of international corporations like Plenty (vertical farming - San Francisco, USA) as well as Armadillo (customer relationship marketing in Bristol, UK), and Zinkers (digital transformation solutions in Spain). Some of my past consulting clients include major international companies like Under Armour (USA) and Telefonica Alpha (Spain) and Siemens (Germany). I am also currently on the board of directors at Armadillo and Board of Advisors at Invstr (UK).

I value sharing the lessons I’ve learned from Silicon Valley giants with global audiences. I am a sought-after international speaker and have spoken at conferences across 5 continents. I particularly value speaking to entrepreneurs to help give them an edge in competitive global business and to forward my mission to democratize the internet and bringing underrepresented voices to the forefront.
