We Believe in the Plot Twist of Extraordinary Leadership.

We believe in giving voice to changemakers. We believe in leading the best story. We believe in you.

Our Philosophy
"AIM HIGH IN HEART AND HOPE."

Your job is more than CEO, president, executive director, head honcho. You are more than a business strategist, statesperson, brand ambassador. Arguably, your most important role is Chief Inspiration Officer.

So master The Art of Inspiration—to ignite and unite your employees, customers, and constituents.

From strategy and storytelling, we partner with you to become the Upstart Leader you're meant to be.

Our Quest 

Who are we for? Leaders at their crest, on the cusp, or in crisis—who want to amplify their impact.

What do we do? We are your partner, advisor, and sounding board—from strategizing on business, building your platform, coaching for charisma, shaping communications, performance-training your executive office to crafting career-defining moments.

Why us? We are presidents of Fortune 10 companies who are also published authors, communications leaders who are also award-winning novelists, creative directors who are also photographers, news anchors who are also Shark Tank coaches.

What do we achieve together? Inspiration and impact.

“You are my quest.”
–Kubo and the Two Strings
