Your Corner Consulting LLC
About your business or what you specialize in: I provide facilitation and training & development services to businesses, government, entities and nonprofits. I specialize in learning simulations and other methods of experiential learning – no death by Power Point! I also facilitate strategic plans and I’m building a network of facilitators like myself to better serve clients.
How did you get into this line of work?: I started my career in financial analysis and then moved to CARE (a global poverty fighting organization) as an internal auditor. In that role, I had the chance to travel the world and also develop additional skills in writing, interviewing, process flows, and presentations. When the travel got to be too much, I was contacted by a recruiter who needed someone who could analyze financial statements AND present easily in front of the room. So I fell into the niche market of business acumen simulations. I’ve been doing that for over a decade and developing other trainings along the way. In 2017, I decided to make the leap into the independent world, and the support from Connects has been amazing!
Who inspires you? When I was traveling with CARE, I met so many people who were passionate about their work – no matter what it was. I remember a chauffer in Tanzania who watched the team carefully as he drove and monitored the road at the same time. I interviewed a security guard in Peru that defended the office as if it were a top secret government organization. I became addicted to the chai made by the office hostess at the Pakistan office. When people love what they do and are good at what they do, I am inspired.
