Starting back when I was around three years old, my mother made me look people in the eyes, smile, and say hello. I never stopped! At some point, I actually started enjoying it. Maybe that's why I've connected to so many interesting and diverse people over the years.
I discovered as much as I enjoy connecting with people I liked even more being a connector, connecting people who had something in common, a business interest, the same hometown, alumni of the same school, whatever it was. My mind sparks when I find those common connection points and I act to make the introductions.
I started my consulting firm in 1996 focusing on clients in the real estate industry. I soon realized the part of every engagement I enjoyed the most and where I had the greatest success was the relationship-building I did on behalf of my clients.
So, I pursued that passion and widened my industry target list, providing service to help clients achieve goals using strategic networking interwoven with person branding,
Today, I work passionately on behalf of diverse clients seeking to join corporate boards of directors. Their success is my success. I love helping clients connect with their targeted companies to find opportunities and build awareness of their board service pursuit.
