I have spent the past 8+ years providing strategic HR for 11 different clients. Consulting for these clients required that I deliver results; sharpening my ability to diagnose issues, plan solutions, and implement programs. The work ranged from talent and career frameworks, to succession planning, to talent mobility. By immersing myself into many different organizational structures and company cultures, I strengthened my comfort with ambiguity and dynamic approach to change management. • Spearheaded global programs (HCM, SaaS), negotiating with global offices, motivating, and managing global consultants to ensure consistency, communication, and client-focus. • Leveraged expert relationship building and communication to foster trust at all levels; mobilized local team strengths and collaboration while working on cross-functional teams internationally. • Revitalized processes, procedures and policies including sales and marketing process; requirements analysis process; program development process, and project delivery process. • Introduced cost reductions by reengineering and restructuring processes; developed robust control through system implementation, standard operating procedures, and controls.
