Meet Wendy Giffords
As a trusted thought leader, corporations and individuals rely on me to devise practical innovative solutions to complex business and personal challenges. I'm a strategy consultant and executive coach with a unique capability to connect efforts to outcomes for achieving short and long term goals.
My background includes employment and consulting at Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, privately held businesses and politics. I've built and run a $100M online business; conducted extensive due diligence for investors in the US and abroad; been part of the launch team in a wide variety of industries: consumer electronics, consumer packaged goods, social media, pet products, mobile medical services, legal and financial services.
This range of experience and educational background has given me a deep understanding of how people and process align for success (or failure) in the workplace. I view companies as unique entities that interact with the people, process, and products they are comprised of. This perspective creates leads to some unique insights.
In other words, I'm called on to work with clients to:
Build "structured start-ups".
Effectively use data for decision making.
Identify and fix internal communication problems.
Powerfully connect brands to consumers.
Create a culture where people want to work.
Negotiate contracts and structure deals.
My education includes a BA in Philosophy from the University of Michigan; a Leadership Coaching Certification from Brown University; and attendance at the Stern Graduate Business School at New York University.
