Transformative. Groundbreaking. Advocate. This is Ronna Timpa, a tireless champion of workplace inclusion who made it her mission to advance the field of workplace English as a Second Language (ESL). For the past 25 years, she has made good on her promise. What began with an opportunity to teach English to 30 housekeepers representing 11 countries has evolved into Ronna’s passion and profession. Armed with a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management and a master’s degree in TESL, she founded Workplace ESL Solutions, an industry-leading language communications firm headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada with offices in California and Florida. The firm’s Chief Motivator, Ronna inspires her team to educate and empower clients through courses, coaching, speaking and consultation in the areas of workplace ESL, diversity & inclusion, business writing, and written translations.
Sought after by top hospitality corporations, government agencies, residential communities, and healthcare clients, Ronna is a guru in linking ESL training to job performance, retention, and an exceptional guest experience. The practical application of her innovative approach comes to life in her empowering keynote speeches, the numerous textbooks she has authored and in the online hotel ESL program she imagined and engineered with Vegas PBS.
This enthusiastic, results-oriented leader gets her energy from her kind husband, her energetic teenage daughter, and lots of vegetables.
