Marketing/Branding agency owner. International digital marketing strategist. Nonprofit executive director. Technology futurist. Independent consultant. Speaker at local, national, and international meetings and conferences. I bring 35 years of experience helping brands, organizations, and individuals discover and create opportunities to assuring relevance. I have worked with over 150 companies from entrepreneurial ventures to Fortune 500 companies. I led the Telstra brand in Australia through the process of going public and being named the most valuable brand in Australia. I founded Myne, the first digital marketing agency in Australia and New Zealand on behalf of Publics International. I owned my own firm, Stratecom in Boulder, Colorado for nearly 15 years. And I have been an independent consultant.
I left my marketing/branding career in the technology sector to offer my expertise to the nonprofit community as Executive Director of the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, Colorado, which during my five years grew from being nearly irrelevant in that community to the most popular multi-disciplined arts center in the area, including accomplishing a $6.2 million renovation. In that position I learned how every nonprofit must understand how to be relevant to not only those it serves, but importantly to those who fund it.
I offer unique and practical insights into being relevant based on my extensive background in marketing, branding, technology, and nonprofit management. My passion now is to share those insights as we face a future of new challenges and opportunities most of us have not yet even considered.
