People Developer | Business Consultant | Connector
I have three beliefs -
1 - Innovation – is a mindset;
2 - The sum of any endeavor, personal or business, far exceeds its parts if there is a desire to discover and refine human connections;
3- Leadership – belongs to anyone willing to be vulnerable.
I help individuals and companies from start-ups through established organizations on the cusp of change determine the next best action.
For businesses, if there are market shifts or a need to take stock and refactor for future growth, I question, research, observe, advise on opportunities and risks, using over 30 years of experience across various industries, disciplines, and levels of authority.
For those at a point of personal change, I connect you to your potential and power by developing your unique and personal platform that combines ideas, values, and passions to guide career and personal choices. Together we create a roadmap with pragmatic action/outcomes. I act as an accountability leader and dreamcatcher, distilling your vision into actionable next best steps to build a path to their goals. There is no greater joy than watching someone find purpose in work and life that aligns with their unique platform.
My career spans from frontline employee to C-suite with experience in marketing, project management, business analysis, product development, and human management across the business, IT, and operations teams. I am a lapsed PMP certified project manager and former President of the IIBA - International Institute of Business Analysts. I bridge the divide between business and IT speak able to refine complex systems into consumable bites, understandable to a layperson.
Currently, I am the founder of Maikoa Consulting, a business strategy advisory firm that works with businesses of any size to respond to market changes and scale.
