I am an innovative executive with over 25 years of experience working with business-to-business media companies on strategies to engage audiences with content. After years of consulting, I realized that a universal problem among clients was the lack of planning and productive discussion prior to committing to a project. Certified in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and materials, I am able to work with teams to get to the heart of the discussion which leads to stronger planning, project execution, and team relationships. This is a huge asset to clients in facilitating business discussions, team building workshops, and industry event sessions. At my company, Backwards Bicycling, I focus on forward thinking communications strategies for businesses and individuals. My goal is to help teams find solutions to strategic questions using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and materials to unlock hidden and new knowledge and break habitual ways of thinking. Through this method I facilitate meaningful business discussions that engage your team and encourage effective communication. Everyone in the room participates and everyone in the room reflects. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® encourages 100% participation from all members of the group, changing “lean backwards meetings” to “lean forward meetings”, where the result is more participation, more insights surfaced, more engagement, and a more positive experience for all involved. Below are just some examples of meetings and discussions that can benefit from the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method: * Business Topics * How to find new clients * Creating a winning business culture * Business operations team building * Product development process * New ideas for additional revenue streams * Department identity * Developing future scenarios * New marketing ideas * Engaging discussions among peers at industry events * Wedding Planning * Church council discussions * Fraternity/Sorority leadership meetings * Selecting the ideal college * Career planning * Discussing retirement lifestyle/location etc.
