Peter Drucker, the renowned management guru, believed that a business only had two functions: (1) to innovate; and, (2) to market.  In recognition of his genius, my motto is "Innovate. Market. Repeat."   

I founded WSB, LLC as a means to improve the world through entrepreneurship and philanthropy by focusing my consulting practice on strategic marketing, branding, leadership development, and fundraising and non-profit management. 

It has been my privilege to support innovators as they grow their profits, market share, charitable donations and, their positive social impact.  

I have had the good fortune of working with thought-leaders at academic medical centers, and top notch executives at community hospitals, and pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and contract research companies.

It has been equally rewarding to collaborate with entrepreneurs and leaders in the aerospace, construction, genomic, information technology, nanotechnology, and packaged goods sectors. 

WSB is a business partner of STRATX  to provide leadership development and consulting services enhanced by their advanced computer simulations. These simulations have helped dozens of Fortune 100 companies and several 501(c)(3) organizations achieve their goals.  Plus, we use other evidence-based leadership development and coaching  techniques (e.g. Porter's 5 Forces; Collins/Porras Visioning, SWOT analysis, etc.,) depending on the client's goals and objectives.    

Equally important to me is social entrepreneurship. As a certified fund raising executive (CFRE), I have been honored to help envelope-pushing 501(c)(3) corporations achieve record-breaking results in their annual, major gift and capital campaigns. In fact, I have personally written successful grant applications to federal and state agencies, municipal governments, and private, public, corporate and family foundations.  

I deeply appreciate my wonderful clients and colleagues who allow me to help them build rich consumer and donor experiences. To me, customer and donor centricity is a commitment that makes the world a better place for us all.
