Career Coaching for Executive & Management Level Professionals

Career Services that Enable Your Intentional Career Growth & Strategic Career Moves

Hello! In the '90s as an Executive Recruiter, I became fascinated by deciphering the personal marketing success patterns of business talent. That led me to start my first career business, get acquired, lead a product team for the world's largest job board, found Bold Career in 2002, and lead a global top 100 B-school careers program. After three decades, I'm still fascinated by finding ways to better help our clients.

Our awesome team of career coaches, consultants and staff champion and support your career success. Whether you have an immediate need or are searching for a partner to help you navigate your career journey, we'd be honoured to support you.

“The new resume was a work of art, it was magical at getting me in the door...I had 30 to 40 interviews and 4 offers. The resume put me in the driver seat, I was able to make a choice because of my resume versus taking the 1st thing to come along.”
