Partnerships Consultant, New Market & Channel Partner Strategist & Connector

I am a(n):

Creative Partnership Curator New Revenue Channel Seeker Passionate Connector Business Consultant Remote Work Expert Entrepreneur Community Builder Network Referral Synergistic Collaborations World Traveller Clean Tech Cheerleader

I know a lot about:

Partnerships Travel Events Entrepreneurship Connections Community Building

I am the go-to for:

I help my clients discover, create and package their services, teach them how to sell into new markets, and help them curate mutually beneficial B2B partnerships.

Why me:

I love helping organizations take the next steps in growing their businesses with the right partners by creating unique partnerships that benefit both the organizations and their community in a positive way. Finding the right fit and playing an instrumental role in growing these partnerships brings me great joy and satisfaction.

New business and consultants are very knowledgeable about the service they have to offer but are not usually prepared to be pitching themselves & networking regularly or hearing No when they feel like their service is a good fit. You need to knock on a lot of doors to find the right audience for your service. I'm here to help focus your ask so you quickly engage with the right audience, have a compelling engagement strategy to warm cold leads, and get you in front of decision-makers to convert the sale.

Fun facts:

I am a lover of the !!!! and capitalizing anything and everything (it may be a small Problem!). I am a direct and action-focused leader who loves to share a wine after achieving a big milestone.

Travel is my #1 passion and I love spending extended stays in countries and digging into local cultural experiences - which should always include good wine, good food, and good company!

I've lived in 3 Countries: Canada (West Coast, BC), Italy (Rome of course), and Ireland (Dublin). I've travelled to 30 Countries (and counting!).

My first solo travel adventure was a 35 days bus tour through 11 Countries in Europe with 3 Canadians, a hand full of Americans, and almost a bus full of Australians. It was crazy and amazing. Lifelong friends were made on these adventures.
