Key accomplishments

In short, helped entrepreneurs understand how to THINK about moving their ideas forward.

Background

About Leslie

I am an experienced business professional with a deep, fundamental understanding of how business – and the people who run them – works.

Manager, VP Strategy & Marketing, operations, reengineering consultant, entrepreneur, business analyst, Big 4 managing consultant, with a flair for Design and Writing.

Looking for people with great ideas for a business, who are more proficient on the technical, innovation or financial side – who need some guidance on how to get the ‘Business side’ to work. Any stage of development. Any industry.

Prefer projects that have at least some funding and are ready to go. Relationship can be ‘pay-as-you-go’ advisor if you’re not looking for a long term Joining Together arrangement.

My goal is to improve your chances of success or solve a particular issue that is holding you back.

Prefer to work virtually (phone, online).

Most business problems, once they are well defined, can easily get to clear logical Action Items for your immediate implementation. I’ll help you with the analysis to get you the understanding so you can readily move forward with confidence.
