Today’s guest is a speaker and advisor who helps companies tap into the human side of business. Over the course of her expansive career, she has experienced her fair share of disruption and corporate upheaval. Surviving all manner of corporate restructuring, reorganization, and multi-billion dollar acquisitions, she has seen firsthand how growth objectives suffer because people strategies fall short of expectations. That’s why she’s made it her mission to help companies cultivate the human point of view in today’s data-driven era.
An internationally skilled C-suite marketing executive, she has over 25 years of experience working in global advertising, marketing, and corporate communications for a variety of industry-leading companies such as Kraft, Unilever, Nokia, Cadbury, Coors, Gerber’s, and NAVTEQ.
She is currently writing the book, Now What? A survivor’s guide for navigating and thriving through acquisition, which will help companies and their workforces flourish through mergers and acquisitions.
