“It’s rare that a seasoned executive also has a deep understanding of entrepreneurship. And while your company may be beyond startup phase, in order to stay competitive in today’s market it needs to develop its entrepreneurial spirit. Tanisha Drummer and her leadership philosophies can help bring that along with agility, speed, innovation, and results to your life and your organization in the same way she has done for a variety of Fortune 500 companies through her courageous career.”

“I am a big dreamer who can get sidetracked and derailed by questioning the details: Is it the right time?  What will people think?  What if it’s too costly? Will it really make a difference?  Too often, I talk myself out what I want for practical, impertinent reasons rather than diving in and seeing what might actually happen. This is a no-go in Tanisha’s future-focused world, and she never accepts “not possible” as a reason for not doing something. When she supports me through major life transitions, her spirited disposition always keeps a positive spin on what’s ahead, and her no-nonsense demeanor keeps me accountable to my goals. She helps you determine a path for getting from point A to point B: no exceptions and no excuses, but with an eye towards realistic, sustainable steps and outcomes. In her eyes, no goal is too lofty if you have a plan for getting there.”

She is someone I personally rely on to listen and help me at critical moments in my own career.”
